    Easy Interview

    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."

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Credit Suisse in June 2018.

    Interview

    First contacted by their internal recruiter with some standard questions including salary requirements. Interviewed with the hiring manager, the hiring manager's manager, and many stakeholders. My only issue was that the process seemed to take a long time....from first contact to offer took several months. I have heard the CS doesn’t make quick decisions, so this was to be expected.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation
