Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Credit Suisse (New York, NY) in February 2011.

Interview

First round interview was one 30 minute interview and it went really well. The guy was super nice and just wanted to get to know me and my interest in sales and trading. For my super day I had 5 30-minute interviews. There were no stress tests or brain teasers, just really good conversations. A very positive experience.

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Credit Suisse (New York, NY) in January 2012.

    Interview

    Interviewed at school career center. Fairly intimidating. Mostly behavioral questions with some questions about inflation and interest rates thrown in. My interviewers seemed more intense than the people I had met at the recruiting events.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Credit Suisse (Raleigh, NC) in February 2009.

    Interview

    I interviewed for the Summer IT Analyst position. The first on-campus interview was really relaxed. It consisted of two employees (one manager and one technical analyst). It was a thirty minute conversation about my past jobs and my skills. They pretty much tried to gauge their interest in you, nothing too difficult. The second interview was an all day event called "Super Day" where you participate in tons of interviews. Breakfast with managers from most of the groups, then three thirty minute interviews over the course of the day. There's also a group project that you and 4-5 others have to create and present all in thirty minutes.

    Interview

    The interview was through my school's career center and my interviewer was an alumni. Previous to the interview, students were invited to a nice fancy dinner where we talked casually.

    The interview was purely behavioral - nothing technical. It was very typical - why do you want to go into finance, do you take charge when you work in groups, what's your favorite/ least favorite class. etc.

    It lasted about half and hour or so.

    Interview

    2 on 1 interview. Started out with standard behavioral questions - why banking, resume etc... Technicals were accounting-heavy and a bit of valuations at the end.

    All interviews were non-technical. Every interviewer asked me about leadership, what would I do in certain ethical situations, and examples of ethical dilemmas I faced / challenges faced when working in a group.
    One interviewer asked me about Foreign keys, primary keys, and normalization in SQL.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Credit Suisse (New York, NY) in January 2013.

    Interview

    Invited to exclusive meet and greet event on campus. Extremely nice people, very people oriented firm as far as I could tell. Interview process was relatively straightforward. Interview itself consisted of very few questions. Pretty basic stuff, like "tell us about high school and why you chose [university]", "equities or commodities", "tell us about a time when you failed", etc. Was asked where the 10 year (t bill) rate was at. Nice people, but I didn't think the questions were rigorous enough to separate out the really top candidates from those who "seem" to know about the markets. I think CS looks very much at fit.
