    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Credit Suisse (New York, NY) in October 2009.

    I had two rounds of 1:1 interview in a day.
    First round, the manager was looking for someone who had solid data warehouse skill and asked some questions related to DW experience.
    Second round a general man from risk mgmt group, and he went through my resume and let me explain several terminologies on my resume for him. That's all...

    Interview

    I was hired as a contractor and then converted to full time. This seems to be the norm as Credit Suisse. They like to 'try before we buy'. The interview process was very fair and the offer came on my drive home.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Credit Suisse (Wrocław (Poland)).

    Interview

    Applied online through their website, after a month I was informed that I have been selected for a very first interview and got invited to Wroclaw for it. No phone or remote first interview, which is not cool, since I had to travel and stay there on my own expenses for the very first interview.
    The interview crew was pretty easy and positive people. Interview took place in 2 separate rooms with 2 senior developers all working in different fields within the company.
    Each and took a total of one and a half hour to get interviewed from both sets of developers.

    Interview Questions

    • Asked a basic questions about networking, and solved a pretty simple math problem.
      Then asked about previous managing positions and overall previous experience, what will you tell the managers if your assignment can't meet deadline, what will you do if you are stuck in some hard to solve problems   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Credit Suisse (London, England (UK)) in August 2010.

    Interview

    Got call from the HR dept that they have an opportunity and if I am interested. I said yes and got fact to face interview with Team Lead and Development manager after a week. Asked general C++ questions and some Linux questions. Had another interview with few senior members of team a week later and they asked some more C++/STL questions. Not that tough. Than another interview with HR which was just a formality I think.

    I was without job (being made redundant by previous employer) so didn't stressed much. Anyhow it was same compensation as in my last job so not bad I thought.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Credit Suisse in July 2018.

    Interview

    Confusing Suisse

    I was headhunted by a recruiting agency that promotes CS.

    And first declined the position they was marketing to me at Credit Suisse Singapore/HK.

    Then after some period of time (6 month) they come up to me with a "new" position. Which was later turned out was CS again (they forget it?). Still I decided to give Credit Suisse a try this time.

    First I had a preliminary call with recruiter with basic questions on willing to work at this position with some very simple questions asking about my background, etc.

    After a call I got email from agency - do I want to continue? - Yes of course - because I already told it in the preliminary call - this was first miscommunication - agency is forgetting its interviewers.

    Confusion #2: I was told the next step is the task which will be sent by end of the week to complete on the weekend. Unfortunately I didn't get any task - I waited all the weekend. Instead task arrived late-night-early-morning Monday.

    Since I got task on Monday I replied to CS team that will be making this task as soon as possible - but since I expected task on the weekend they should expect me some time to do it.

    The email with the task was poorly formatted as well as contained task - looked like they just didn't care.

    Team was never confirmed my task receipt when I submitted it during next weekend.
    I have a a feeling that no-body even reviewed my task.

    Another confusion was that there was only 1 technical member in the email recipients which had different background (C#) while I was Java Developer.

    I am confident about high-quality of my solution. The code was clean & well-tested with great documentation (as requested).

    Week later I got automatic confirmation about that my application was declined.

    Attempt to contact recruiter about details of decline was having trouble this time - first he said that he can't disclose an info on email about details of decline and scheduled a call. Then he cancelled scheduled call before 20 minutes of its beginning and rescheduled 2 days later same time - even not asking if it will be okay for me and showing that I am no longer important to them at all.

    Their videos featured on youtube just confirm they disrespect the stuff asking them to wake-up at 6am and work till 22pm (yeah work after office hours is ok).

    I will avoid them at all cost.
