    Ediscovery Counsel Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at UBS.

    Interview

    The position was located overseas. I had 3 rounds of interviews with interviewers located in Hong Kong, Zurich, and London -- and they were all by phone. I wish they offered video conferencing so as to be more engaging. Surprised that they didn't offer this when most companies do for remote interviews, especially going into the 2nd and 3rd rounds.

    The last interviewer who called from their London office used an interrogation style of interivew, seeming to disbelieve my accomplishments and asking why and how I managed to accomplish what I described on my resume -- from jobs that I held as far back as 10 to 15 years ago. He had an air of disbelief and almost assumed that I was hiding something or exaggerating -- seemed inapproriate to put an interviewee as much on the defensive as he did. The first and second round interviewers were much more professional.

    Interview Questions

    • How did you accomplish xyz? (Referring to a *part of a phrase* I wrote in line 4 on page 2 of your resume, in my 5th job out of law school, some 7 years ago.)   Answer Question
    • Why should I believe you?   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at UBS.

    Interview

    Pretty easy process. Behavioral questions mostly about your resume and background. The guy interviewing was really nice and easy to talk to. Overall, a great experience. I would answer in STAR format if I went back in time. A lot of questions on times you were a leader, took initiative, were a team player, etc.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at UBS (Nashville, TN) in November 2017.

    Interview

    I applied for the position through a referral system set up by my boot camp. Once I applied, it was about a month before I heard from them. UBS is an extremely large company, so this wasn't surprising. I was called by an HR employee who set up my interview. I interviewed with two senior developers, and it was an extremely technical interview. About 5 minutes of get-to-know-you questions, and then about 55 minutes of whiteboarding and answering basic questions about Java.

    Summer Technology Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Neutral Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at UBS in November 2017.

    Interview

    I applied for Summer Technology Analyst in Hong Kong. After submitting an online application, I tested an online assessment which consists of UBS Cultural Appraiser and a numerical reasoning test and I failed it. UBS cultural appraiser is about choosing most and least effective answer among 3 choices in given working situation. There were 15 questions. A numerical reasoning test is about interpreting graphs and tables.
    I think I missed one or no question in the numerical reasoning test. So I guess I failed because of the cultural appraiser or visa status.

    Interview Questions

    • (In UBS cultural appraiser test) If a client emailed you that he received smaller dividend than what he should have received and he is upset, what would you do?   Answer Question
