    I was referred by someone within the company so essentially the interview was a little less formal than expected. Met with two partners at the same time and we went over my resume and spoke about my experience in detail. They were both professional and friendly.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at UBS (London, England (UK)) in June 2013.

    Interview was positive, mainly asked strength based competency questions, relaxed atmosphere allowed you to take your time with your answers.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at UBS (Hoboken, NJ) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Walked in and interviewed with 2 different people. They were both very nice but definitely intimidating. They both had a copy of my resume and asked me to go through it and highlight the importance of each component. They asked me why I wanted to work for the company and why I think I would be a good fit.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at UBS (London, England (UK)) in April 2016.

    Interview

    This was at the end of the Spring Week I attended (we did an assessment centre for a summer internship for the next year).

    Assessment centre had 4 parts - 2 interviews with employees from the division you applied for (in my case, it was Research), a group activity and an individual activity.

    There's a competency and a technical interview, so for the competency one, just be prepared to have good examples (and use the STAR technique because they'll have a list of questions that they go through. For the technical, I was also asked quite a few competency questions. The technical questions he asked were not too bad, just keep updated on current affairs - I was asked about an interesting article I had read recently and whether there were any stocks that I would invest in right now. I was also asked two brain teasers - can't really prepare for these, they're not expecting a definite answer, more interested in how you would go about finding the solution. Zero questions about my CV! Interviewers were very nice and easy-going.

    For the individual activity, we were given about 30 minutes to read about a company and prepare a presentation (basically a SWOT analysis). You present to an employee who will follow up with questions.

    I can't remember the group activity but just make sure you make a decent contribution to the group discussion.
