    Wealth Strategy Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at UBS (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    Very professional and organized process. Initial phone screening followed by two in-office interviews. Not very technical, at least for the group I interviewed with. They are big on cultural fit. So outside of just interest in the field and intellectual capacity to complete the job, they care very deeply about WHO it is that they are hiring and whether they'll fit with the group's dynamic.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about your previous work experience in wealth management and why you are interested in continuing with it in this role.   Answer Question
    • How do you feel about 12-hour workdays? Getting in at 6am and leaving around 6pm or later.   Answer Question

    Customer Service Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hartford, CT
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at UBS (Hartford, CT).

    Interview

    First there was a brief phone interview, then I was invited for an in person interview. I was interviewed by two groups of two team members. I was asked the typical questions by the first two, which is incredibly disappointing. The second pair were pleasant and asked more interesting questions that delved more into my abilities and work style.

    Client Onboarding Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Nashville, TN

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at UBS (Nashville, TN).

    Interview

    Phone interview and then one on one interview with manager and supervisor. Was asked when I could start so I thought it went pretty well. Never got a call contacted recruiter he said I was still in the running then checked application status two months later said I was no longer considered. The recruiter said he would keep me updated never did. I think this firm is slightly racist as there are only one type of color working there. Glad I didn't get the job I have a better opportunity.
