    Operations Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Raleigh, NC

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Credit Suisse (Raleigh, NC) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Started off with a behavioral phone interview which was really easy. Then got invited for their super day in the North Carolina office which consisted of 2 more behavioral interviews and one "case" interview. I say "case" because instead of a typical problem they have you solve, they asked me a list of odd questions. All the people were extremely nice and helpful but the "case" caught me off guard

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Credit Suisse (Raleigh, NC).

    Interview

    Even getting in contact with the hiring people was hard. Every person I contacted at the office and online was not very knowledgeable. After finally getting in contact, I met them a few times and was invited for the first round of interviews but not before I had to email them to say I never heard by the deadline. The interview was fine and pretty typical one on one. They used my resume as talking points and I asked some questions after. I never heard back by the second deadline again so I emailed my contact saying I never got a response. The only response they sent back was a generic email saying I was denied. It seemed very impersonal the whole time. At the office we got along well but communicating with them online seemed unprofessional and cold.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Credit Suisse (Morrisville, NC) in November 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was very laid back and straight to the point. More informative than probing, didn't ask a lot of personality questions. The whole interview lasted about an hour, interviewed with two department heads.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Credit Suisse (Raleigh, NC) in August 2015.

    Interview

    First interview was on the phone since I lived too far away. That interview was basically to tell me what the job is and what they are looking for. Second interview was in person and I was interviewed by the VP and AVP on the team separately. The interview was 1 hour and I was called about two days later to say that I was offered the position. I negotiated and they moved a little bit but not much.
