    First email contact, then online tests and finally an invitation to a structured interview. It was about 30min and they asked me about how I would react in different situations. After the interview they put me in contact with the department I would work for, they would proceed to a phone interview before making the final decision.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Credit Suisse (Zürich (Switzerland)).

    Interview

    This was the second round of the interview. The first questions were standard, but then I was asked to replicate some graphs and complicated pivot tables on the interviewer's laptop. Apparently this was the main point of the interview

    Off-Cycle IBD Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Zürich (Switzerland)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Credit Suisse (Zürich (Switzerland)) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Spoke with a VP through an employee referral who set up interviews with a number of analysts and associates. Very well structured, and communication with HR was seamless. The interviews balanced quant and qualitative questions, with a strong focus on M&A and accounting technicals.
    The interviews were as much a skill check as they were a personality check - team fit was prominent, competency more so.

    Interview Questions

    • Technical questions I recall covered minority interest, valuation techniques, levered and unlevered DCFs, LBOs, a short case study on trading multiples, and the usual "how does a $10 increase in Depreciation affect the three FIs". Fairly standard in terms of technicals, then, but they took up about 60% of the interview.
      Qualitative were the usual, "tell me about yourself", "why M&A/IB", "why Credit Suisse", "why Zurich", etc..
      Also spoke about some ongoing transactions.   Answer Question

    The interview was not difficult, managers were polite and did not put pressure.

    Project Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Credit Suisse (Zürich (Switzerland)) in February 2017.

    Interview

    One phone interview followed by three face to face interviews. Regardless of the HR Manager having the word 'experienced' in his job title, he was easily the most incompetent I've ever dealt with. I phoned and emailed both the hiring manager and HR manager two months after the interview for feedback and could not even get a response. I will definitely be thinking twice before considering a role within Credit Suisse in the future. It certainly doesn't appear to be a company that has a lot of direction right now. Coincidently the position is still open more than 6 months after it was first advertised.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Credit Suisse (Zürich (Switzerland)) in November 2016.

    Interview

    The process has three part, first: a phone interview, an in-person and more technical interview, and a case study to present to the senior management.
    I did only the first step. The phone interview lasted around 40 minutes and included mainly behavioral and motivational questions. The principle purpose of the first interview was to define if the personality of the candidate would fit the team.
