    Finance Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Credit Suisse (London, England (UK)) in December 2015.

    Interview

    Online application, online tests and two rounds of face to face interviews, each round with 2 interviews each with different interviewers.
    For me luckily I was not asked anything too technical. First face-to-face round was completely competency based and second was similar. Both interviewers in the second round asked me about the recent (at the time) increase in the US interest rates and how it would affect society.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Credit Suisse (London, England (UK)) in November 2015.

    Interview

    I was invited to an assessment centre following meeting a representative at a campus event. There were 3 behavioural interviews with standard behavioural questions and a case study involving applying technical knowledge to problems relating to the business. I interviewed on the Monday and received a call on the Friday to I say I wouldn't be receiving an offer, since I couldn't display enough examples of work experience in the behavioural interviews. It was overall a friendly experience and I still hold Credit Suisse in high regard.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Credit Suisse (London, England (UK)) in November 2015.

    Interview

    4x30min interview. 3 competency + 1 case study. The interviewer are really nice and was there to observe you but not to challenge you. It was my best interview experience so far.

    This is really a 2-way interview process and they want to make sure that the job is suitable for you as well. Talked about CV first then some competency based questions are raised from the CV. Teamwork and leadership experience are definitely the key. Make sure you are really familiar with your CV and cover letter.

    For the case study, no specific business or technology involved. It is a face to face cases study discussion, and the interviewer were there for you to guide you. It is important to show them how your solution to the problem is developed step by step, to show them you have that analytical skills in hand.
