    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Credit Suisse (Singapore (Singapore)) in November 2017.

    Interview

    Went for the first round interview at CS in Singapore. It was very chill, in a group setting of 5 people with 2 private banking HR. They tested mostly behavioural skills, what you know about the role you're applying for and what future is there in the PB space for CS. Everyone took turns to speak their views. It was more of a discussion which felt nice, but the HR who is not asking questions is actually watching how you behave and interact with others, so take note. Interview lasted about an hour.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Credit Suisse in April 2017.

    Interview

    1. Telephonic interview with HR. Questions were general in nature - like how would you deal with conflicts at workplace. How will you deal with a difficult co-worker etc. A what if question on a golden handshake by the current employer made me fumble a bit, but I passed.
    2. Telephonic interview, this time with a technical guy. Lot of C++ questions which I could answer as I am strong in C++. I passed.
    3. Telephonic interview again after two weeks with a very senior technical person under whom I would work if selected for CS. More of multithreading and database questions with some C++ thrown in. I passed.
    4. Telephonic interview. VP(?!) I fumbled here as this I was not prepared for. It would have been better if this was a face to face interview. I failed.
