I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Credit Suisse (Wilmington, NC) in October 2015.

Spoke with a representative at my school career fair and had an on campus interview a week or two later. It was very quick and easy. The first interview was mostly trying to get an idea of what track I was most interested in. Asked a couple technical questions about my relevant coursework listed.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Credit Suisse (New York, NY) in March 2013.

    Interview

    There were two rounds - an introductory behavioral interview, and a second round with multiple VPs. These interviews were technical at times, focused on resume and accomplishments at times, but mostly focused on whether they thought I was cool and fun enough to work with them. The last interviewer didn't want to be there at all and focused only on the heritage I shared with his wife.

    Three rounds of video interview via webcam in final rounds. Each lasts about 3 hours. The purpose is basically match you to a group you might work with in the summer or full time. Mostly behavioral, go through your resume etc. I was also asked to code some design question but the interviewer only asked me to code out the data fields. Some brain teasers, not too hard.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Credit Suisse (Raleigh, NC) in March 2010.

    Interview

    Targeted as a junior in college for a 10 week summer internship program. Once completing interviews and being selected for the internship about half of the interns are given the opportunity for full-time employment. The Technical Analyst program is then a two year rotational employment followed by full time entry level employment.

    The initial interviews are on campus and are followed up by a day-long series of interviews on site with a variety of managers and recruiters. If an internship offer is extended, then you are assigned a team to work on for 10 weeks in the summer. The team manager's input along with technical analyst program management will evaluate you over the 10 week span and determine wether or not to extend an offer.

    Sometimes people are selected to move directly into the Technical Analyst program as fresh college graduates. This is usually to fill in positions that were offered to former interns who did not graduate on time or pursued other endeavors.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Credit Suisse (Cary, NC) in October 2009.

    Interview

    All interview questions were completely behavioral although this was an IT position in The RTP,NC site. The position is for a technical analyst. First was a phone interview, then there was an on-campus 1 on 1 interview with a senior manager. Then there was a superday (from 10 am - 5:30 pm.) On this day, we were introduced to the site, the head of the tech side at the site, a little introduction to the company.

    Then, we had to make a group presentation in front of 4-5 managers / VPs and they gave us about 45 mins to plan and about 10-15 mins to execute. I think this was very abstract and we could twist it around whichever way we wanted. Managers were very relaxed and friendly.

    Then, we all gathered in a room to get lunch and at some point all the managers came in to introduce themselves and grab some free lunch. Kidding! It was more of a candidate gauge kind of thing!

    After this was 1/2 hour interviews with 4 separate managers so that they could determine if you would be a good fit for their team and so on and so forth.

    That's the end of the day and they give you a small tour before they walk you out!

    I really liked one HR lady in particular along with a VP and the Director of the site was very motivational too!

    Good culture exhibited and I would love to work with them if given a chance.

    Hope this helps

    Interview

    I had two interviews with them. First is on campus interview for half an hour. They asked about your experience and how much do i know their company. The second round is on site interview which was more difficult. Lots of potential candidates were invited so you would get a lot of pressure.
