    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Credit Suisse (New York, NY) in November 2016.

    Interview

    An on-campus interview at first, and it took about 10 days to proceed to the next round-interview at NY office. There was a pre-session on Superday, and it was nice talking to several technical analysts. There were three back-to-back interview, and each was about 30 minutes. The interviewers were nice, and it was a great opportunity talking with them. Not extremely technical.

    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Fairly laidback process. I had 3 back-to-back-to-back phone interviews. First two interviews were very behavioral. Third interview was much more technical, but all stuff you learn in school. For the most part, it was behavioral with a couple technical questions about risk, but nothing to hard.

    In order to get the interview had to meet and get on the phone with a number of analysts, and talk about your interests in the internship. I got an on campus interview and it was extremely technical. Basically just walk me through your resume and then the rest of the interview was technical.

    Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Credit Suisse (Raleigh, NC) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The whole interview process was enjoyable. The recruiter called me first and had a brief interview. After one week, I got the onsite interview invitation. I came to the Raleigh office and had three rounds with VP, Director and AVP. It was about one and half hours. People were very nice. The questions were about the skills (especially Excel and analytical skills) I obtained from the past experience and how to transfer them into the new role. They are not hard. Also, " why Credit Suisse", " How do you feel about the extended working hours" and " Could you tell me about your excel skills" were asked in every round. So, be prepared for these three questions. After two days, I received the offer and accepted it.
