    Contractor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at UBS (Chicago, IL) in January 2013.

    Interview

    I was an intern first. I spent 6 months being an intern. After my internship was over, I was given a contractual position. The interview was essentially my time as an intern. I had to have my work portfolio put together for them to see if it was worth giving me the contract position. I had a group interview with everyone in my department the weeks before my internship was over.

    Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Stamford, CT
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at UBS (Stamford, CT) in January 2010.

    Interview

    Phone interview with current Associate. One general brain teaser which was not very difficult. Spoke mostly about past experiences that would make me suited for the position. Interviewer spent a great deal of time on his recruitment process, his day to day responsibilities, and the status of the group. Felt more like a conversation, than an interview.

    Associate Director Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at UBS in September 2010.

    Interview

    HR was incredibly professional. When UBS is ready to hire, they will interview immediately and expect and answer immediately. The whole process was less than a week, but I know for others it can take months...until they need head count in the hiring area, then it is important to be in the right place.

    Interview Questions

    • Do you know what we do here? (The answer is hardly ever yes, but show that you did some homework)   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I accepted what was offered which was what I requested in my application.

    Associate Director Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at UBS (Chicago, IL) in June 2014.

    Interview

    Interviewed with HR over the phone first. An in-person interview with the hiring mgr and two more people followed shortly. One more on-site interview with the Managing Director. Another phone interview with the Executive Director overseas. Very friendly overall. Nothing technical, more of a "personality fit" process.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    The salary offer was exactly what I asked for, so there was no point in negotiating.
