    Sophomore Women's Program Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at UBS (New York, NY) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Completed a first round video interview in which I recorded my answers to questions displayed - not a video interview with a person on the other end. Was then invited to final round interviews at a super day in New York. The super day consisted of three 20-minute interviews, each one-on-one. All of the questions were behavioral.

    Application

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

    Interview

    Multi layered meetings with many individuals. The building is nice but the level of stress might have been an issue going forward. European banks in general still have a murky future

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at UBS (New York, NY) in January 2017.

    Interview

    The superday was purely behavioral and resume-based. Went into three rooms, each with one interviewer. Two of them were really nice. The interview was generally conversational (now that I think of it I probably made it too conversational). Heard back a week later by phone that I wasn't accepted.

    Equity Research Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    It was in the Seoul Branch.
    It was in both Korean and English.
    You need to be interviewed by two people successively.
    Acutally I expected the typical technical questions like How many valuation models that you know, or What is DCF....but actually, they were asking you something that are poping out, for example, if there is an increase in the interest rate, how would it affect the stock market, etc....

    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/

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at UBS (Weehawken, NJ).

    Interview

    The company is much more focused on culture fit than technical acumen, as they can teach you that aspect. In order to prepare for the interview, you should learn as much as you can about UBS, the wealth management industry, and current events that can influence the direction of the stock market.
