    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.

    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Zürich (Switzerland)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Credit Suisse (Zürich (Switzerland)) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Ich hatte mich online über die Webseite beworben. Bis zur 1. Einladung zum Interview vergingen fast 3 Wochen. Dachte schon, sie wären nicht interessiert.
    Danach 3 einzelne Vorstellungsgespräche mit der Linie innerhalb einer Woche (in dieser Reihenfolge: Chef, Chef-Chef, Teammitglied).

    In Interview 1 ging es darum, sich kennenzulernen: Interviewperson hat viel über sich erzählt, und natürlich musste ich mich auch vorstellen (erzählen Sie mal...). Es wurden aber relativ wenig Fragen zu meinen bisherigen Erfolgen, meinen Skills etc. gestellt. Das fand ich ungewöhnlich. Auch die Rolle wurde nicht gerade detailliert erläutert. Ich musste ziemlich viele Fragen stellen, um mir ein besseres Bild machen zu können.

    In Interviews Nr. 2 und 3 kamen dann mehr fachspezifische Fragen. Dazu gehörte auch eine Case Study.

    Im grossen und ganzen war der Interview Prozess sehr professionell.

    Interview Questions

    • Viele job-spezifische Fragen wie z.B.: "Was tun Sie, wenn Sie merken, dass Sie eine wichtige Deadline nicht einhalten können?"

      Und halt die typischen Interview fragen wie "Was interessiert Sie an diesem Job (Motivation?)", "Wie gehen Sie mit Konflikten um?"... hierzu findet man im Internet ja genügend Lektüre.

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Credit Suisse (London, England (UK)) in January 2013.

    Interview

    There were three interviews over the course of three weeks. First your potential line supervisors, then senior management and finally HR. HR jobs at that stage is to get you to sign your contract so they not always as truthful as they should be about the compensation package. This is 20 % below market and no, your "bonus" will not cover this shortfall.

    Internal Audit Senior Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Raleigh, NC
    No Offer
    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.
