    About two - three weeks after I submitted my application online, I received an email scheduling an interview in the same week. I had an interview with the assistant market head. Learnt that after the 2 years training program is over, you will have to start from ground 0 and find your own sales and money to manage to survive. I was asked if it sounds like fun to me that if I have to keep in mind that I need to get sales from every walk of life I come across. My answer to him was no and we had a mutual understanding that I was not interested in the job anymore.

    Asset Management Interview

    Interview

    The interview process was very unprofessional. After coming in for an in-person interview, I received radio silence from HR for over a month. I received a response only after I followed-up countless of times. I understand that recruiters are busy, but I feel that at the very least an update can be provided for candidates that take time to attend an in-person interview. Just felt like a waste of time for both parties.

    The actual phone and in-person interviews went well. Interviewers were personable and friendly. They were looking for a culture fit as much as a technical fit.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing technical. Make sure you know your resume well as they use certain lines for talking points and questions.   Answer Question

    Graduate Talent Program Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Received an email from the recruiter asking to schedule an initial phone interview with a senior manager in the firm. The phone interview was surprisingly informal, with a few behavioral questions thrown into the mix. The informality of everything really threw me off, but it makes sense because it's a two year program and they want to make sure you're a good fit.

    Client Onboarding Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Nashville, TN

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at UBS (Nashville, TN).

    Interview

    I applied for the business analyst position and was told someone would contact me. A few weeks later, I applied for a different position and was quickly contacted by a man who said I was a good fit for a third position. The interview was actually two interviews, back to back, with two different people for two different positions (this was not explained to me). The first man I never heard anything from, and the second woman contacted me right away to move on in the process. A few days later I had a phone interview with her NY supervisor.

    Eventually the recruiter called to offer me the job. He was very aggressive in Salary negotiation and wanted a "gentleman's handshake" that I would accept the job before getting off the phone.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at UBS (Charlotte, NC) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Initial phone call then series of 4 interviews. The interviewers were not from the Charlotte office, they flew them down from the New Jersey office so they were a little tougher. It took almost 4 weeks for them to respond to let me know the results of the interview and the follow up was not very good.

    Interview

    Brief phone interview followed by campus "superday." The interviews consist of three one-on-one interviews with a group project. The group project is very straightforward with no prep needed. The one-on-one interviews are strictly fit, behavioral, and resume questions, and maybe one or two technical questions if you indicated a programming language you know.
