    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Credit Suisse (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I had 13 interviews on 5 separate days for a VP-level job. Most interviewers were totally unprepared, had no idea who I was or why I was there. One Branch Manager said, "I don't know why we're even looking at someone for that position." Another CEO direct report said, "I have a tie over there on the hook but I didn't think you were important enough to put it on."

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Credit Suisse (Pune (India)) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Three technical rounds. All went well. They told me that interview feedback was positive. We will call you back for offer discussion and then they never called back. Same experience to my friend who has also came for interview. It was a complete waste of 1 full day. There was no response from HR. It seems they were taking interview for fun and waste time of others

    Accepted Offer

    Interview

    Application via cv, followed by a number of interviews with various levels of seniority. Depending on who interviews you can have very different experiences. Mine were generally pleasant but people are not afraid to ask tough and probing questions.
    Whole process took less than two weeks but probably because they were keen to get someone in and also people that interviewed just happened to have been around.

    Vice President Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dubai (United Arab Emirates)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Credit Suisse (Dubai (United Arab Emirates)) in October 2011.

    Interview

    The role which was posted by the company for campus recruitment was a junior role, and i had applied to gain access to the right people. I had a good first level discussion which led the Sr. HR manager to invite me for a second round of interview/ conversation with her. The conversation went well - however, I made the error of not showing as much interest in the job as I should have. Immediately after I finished my interview, i realised that there was not much enthusiasm from my end for the role, and it would be a miracle if I am actually extended an offer. Just as expected, I was declined for the role.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Credit Suisse (London, England (UK)) in August 2010.

    Interview

    Typically the interview consists of four interviews, plus a meeting with HR. Each interview will be with someone more senior.

    Advice to candidates: know what Credit Suisse are doing in the markets. It is possible to receive more than one offer for a role here. Offers took a long time to be processed.
