    Discovered the firm at an info session on campus in September. Submitted resume and cover letter before the OCR deadline in mid-October. Was notified about selection for 1st Round interview two weeks later. 1st round interview was on campus with two Associates. Final round was two back-to-back interviews at a location near campus (one was a 1-on-1, the other was a 2-on-1) all with MDs. Got a call with an offer the next business day. First round was about half fit, half technical. Final round was fit-based.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at UBS (Hartford, CT) in July 2016.

    Interview

    I was emailed to days after I submitted my resume and asked to come in for an interview at the Hartford office. I then went on the following Friday to the office and met with one person who then introduce me to the rest of the office in a crew of about four people. The interview was fairly basic there was no tough questions or if any behavioral questions. They seemed reluctant to hire anybody for the position because of the "entry level" status. Everybody seems nice and I left office feeling good. I then never heard a word back from them, it has been two weeks.

    Interview with 3 to 5 people 30 minutes each. Then another 2 persons for second round. Interview process is typical.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at UBS (Stamford, CT) in March 2014.

    Interview

    Overall the interview process was very nice and everyone was very polite. The recruiters were very helpful in dealing with conflicts and were responsive and very timely. Even my most difficult interviewer was polite. They also had people come in to sit with us while we waited who were very open and willing to answer questions (and share correct answers to keep us from being nervous). The group task was not difficult--you don't need any technical knowledge for it.

    Interview Questions

    • My resume was a bit unrelated and I was asked why, given my different experience, I wanted to work there. This might have been due to my previous experience dealing with feminist issues though. No one else seemed to have this issue.   Answer Question
