    Chief Data Officer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Credit Suisse in April 2019.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a third party recruiter on a Friday and received an interview request for the following Monday. At first the Hiring Manager implied he didn't receive my resume only an interview request and after a few minutes he "found" it. I don't know if he was trying to "deflect" from the fact that he hadn't read my resume but it quickly went downhill from there. He then asked what the recruiter told me about the role. Other than the job description the recruiter didn't have too much insight (not that I expected him to). Interviewer was borderline combative and did not hide that fact that he had an "attitude" after I mentioned most job descriptions rarely fully explain the role. Turns our he wrote the job description and once he finally explained the role he confirmed my point. Typically my interview experience has been the Hiring Manager starting off by explaining the role and what they are looking for in a candidate. They then ask questions about your experience as it relates to that.

    This Hiring Manager acted like he could not understand my questions:
    Is this role responsible for data and analytics strategy for the group?
    How does this role interact with the team?

    I've dealt with C-Level Executives (higher up than he is) my entire career. As candidates are also interviewing potential bosses; I was NOT impressed.

    Interview Questions

    • What did you get from the job description that I took the time to write?

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Credit Suisse (Raleigh, NC) in April 2012.

    Interview

    Easy interview. Operations is an easy job to land. Just have a strong resume hilighting time management, organization, and leadership. Don't mention front-office in interview. That pisses them of.

    Why Operations? I said i like seeing things from start to finish. I like to try and make things more efficient.

    Architect or builder ( or some other stupid question)?
    builder - have a vision, manage, and sit back and be able to accomplishment.

    Interview Questions

    • Picked out random positions from my resume and tested me on them.
      Asked me questions about where i saw myself in ten years at CS.   Answer Question

    Operations Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Raleigh, NC
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Credit Suisse (Raleigh, NC) in February 2012.

    Interview

    Very cut and dry process - one hour interview, split into two separate ones. First had two people in it - asked extremely boring questions, weaknesses, strengths, how do you go about solving a problem, leadership, etc. Second asked similar questions. Overall, it was an easy interview, however it showed a lack of creativity on their part and did not seem like an exciting job at all.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    The department the job was in did not seem like a good fit - the people who interviewed seemed boring.

    Interview

    Pretty straight forward, except for the aptitude test which I hear they're no longer administering. I interviewed with 3 different division managers after my initial HR meeting. The questions were the usual what are your strengths and weaknesses. Where do you see yourself in 5 years, etc.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Credit Suisse (Geneseo, NY) in May 2015.

    Interview

    It was a single phone interview, and then a job offer. Quick and easy, but at one point the HR representative did neglect to tell me in a voicemail that she was calling to offer me the position, and I almost missed the opportunity due to her error.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked me for what I felt was the most important skill in any professional setting.   1 Answer

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Credit Suisse.

    Interview

    The Interview process was very simple, two rounds of behavioral followed by super day. One HR interview and one with a managing director. The super day consisted of three thirty minute interviews with members of different departments. All interviews were behavioral, and were looking to see what you wanted to do. Make sure you really want to work in operations and make no mention of doing anything other than back office jobs.
