    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at UBS (Bellevue, WA) in July 2017.

    Interview

    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

    Average 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.

    • 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.

    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.

    Interview Questions

    • If a coworkers was overwhelmed, how would you deal with the problem?   Answer Question
    • How would you prioritize tasks if you had urgent projects but not enough time to complete them?   Answer Question
    • Describe (X) on your resume, how was that done?   Answer Question

    I applied online. I interviewed at UBS (New York, NY) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Submitted an online application, resume and cover letter through UBS career webpage for the Graduate Talent Program in their Risk Office. Heard back about a video interview, and completed that. About a week after, I was offered an in-person interview in New York. There were four 30 minute interviews, each with two interviewers. Some were straight forward, asking about my resume and work experience. One of the interviews was very technical, with fixed-income questions and pure math questions.

    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.
