    Executive Director Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Interview

    Screening interview was behavioral. In person interviews were substantive. Great meeting everyone in person -- every single person was personable and engaged. Job description covered a lot of areas, though they seemed to really hone in on one; don't assume that a general description means a general role. Took almost 3 months to hear back.

    Behavioral interview; easy questions. You guided the interview and the questions were based on what you talked about. Long time for questions, so prepare good questions for the interviewer.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at UBS (Philadelphia, PA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    I was emailed to schedule an interview after applying via my school's website. I met with the person who I would be working directly for and her boss. The interview was fairly standard, although I was not given the opportunity to ask the boss any questions at the end of the interview. I didn't have the exact background they were looking for and knew as soon as I left the interview that I did not get the internship/

    Education Program Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at UBS (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Step 1: Phone interview with recruiter (30 - 45 mins)
    Step 2: In-person, one-on-one interviews with 5 team members (5 hours total)
    Step 3: Create and submit a mock presentation detailing your program ideas (at least 10+ hours spent working on this)
    Step 4: Follow up conversation with Hiring Manager discussing your deck and asking for more program ideas (30-45 mins)

    After successfully completing all rounds, I received a call from the recruiter saying that the team really liked me and she asked again about my current salary (this had been previously discussed along with salary expectations). It sounded like I was about to be given an offer, but it seemed they were going to base the offer off of my current nonprofit salary rather than what was budgeted for the role. I had a sense of the range based on very reliable research, however, when I asked the recruiter for the range, the recruiter danced around and didn't give a straightforward answer. She did, however, imply that the role payed $40K less than what I knew it paid. The recruiter said she would get back to me and I never heard from her or anyone else on the team again.

    After a couple of weeks passed with no follow-up from UBS, I followed up at least two more times and did not receive a response. Completely unprofessional and after four rounds of interviews, quite disrespectful. Once a candidate has become a top finalist and has gone through several rounds of interviews, you should at least notify the candidate that they were not selected.

    Interview Questions

    • What are your ideas for this program? Who would you say are key players (individuals, organizations) in the field that we should partner with? (this was a new initiative they were launching and b/c they did not have expertise in education, they literally were asking these questions b/c they did not know the answer and needed the intel).   Answer Question
