    Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Raleigh, NC
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Credit Suisse (Raleigh, NC) in April 2017.

    Interview

    The HR could have been more clear on about which position you are being considered. Also, it would've been nice if they give you a 24-48 hour notice about scheduling an interview. Besides that, the interview is a 2 hour process, 4 different rounds. 3 one on one and one video call. I felt as if the interview process was not organized well. During the process it was a lot of moving around. Furthermore, the interview process was average. Employers were nice and the director was intimidating. However, it would've been nice to know what you were interviewing for beforehand. Apparently, I was being interviewed for 6 positions.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Credit Suisse (New York, NY).

    Interview

    The interview was your typical banking interview process. Since I was an out-of-state candidate, I did a few screens by phone and then eventually got taken out to New York. I would say that the process was more organized than the interview processes I went through at other banks.

    Internal Audit Senior Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Credit Suisse (Raleigh, NC) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I was contacted by an internal recruiter, meaning they reached out to me. I asked what the pay was for this position, since I was skeptical as to how much it paid based on the title. They proceeded to lie to me by telling me the position salary range was 25K than it was. Obviously, I did not learn that it was a lie, until the end of the process. I guess they thought I was desperate or was untruthful on my end. Neither of which were true. I even informed them of my current salary during this first interaction, too make sure we were not too far apart in the beginning and I was not wasting my time and neither were they.

    After taking the internal recruiter's word for it, I went through the interview process. I had two phone interviews first, one with HR and one with the hiring manager. Both of which were really straight forward. There were no behavioral questions until the in person interview, which came after the two phone calls. The process took about 3-4 weeks.

    After going through the interview process I was contacted by the same internal recruiter that had lied to me on the front end. I was told that I made it to the final round of interviewing and she wanted to know how low I could go for the salary I was asking for and I told her 1K off of the lowest point of the range provided on the front end. She proceeded to tell me the amount they could offer and I told her I made approximately 10K more than that right now, which she knew on the front end. At that point, they decided to quite wasting my time and theirs, by canceling my 4th interview.

    Trade Surveillance QA Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Credit Suisse.

    Interview

    Initial call with the recruiter, interview arranged with the hiring manager who cancelled, rescheduled and eventually did not attend the rescheduled call. Substitute manager interviewed with the rudest and most harsh interview tone I have ever faced throughout the career, did not even introduce himself till the end of the call. Passive aggressive and negative responses to the simplest of answers delivered.
    Do not intend to join and would never consider the company for a different role even in the future. Extremely unprofessional to sum it up.
