    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at UBS (Houston, TX) in January 2012.

    Interview

    The communications and interview set up with the company were very professional. The interview was a 30 minute interview. They started out asking about myself and my resume and what classes I liked and didn't like in college. Then they went on to ask technical questions. They were helpful and explained if I didn't get an answer completely right. They also did a great job of explaining their roles at UBS and why they liked their jobs.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at UBS (San Francisco, CA) in January 2011.

    Interview

    It was a standard process with 2 rounds of interviews. Very technical in general with some brain teasers. It was a first round on the phone with a mid-level person. After that if accepted for final rounds we went to office visits and a super day. The super day is a day long interview with 5-8 people that focus on different aspects of the job. This goes from analysts up to managing directors. They also try to sell you on the office and the company if they like you.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at UBS (New York, NY) in February 2009.

    Interview

    There were two people in the interview, one seemed to play the good cop, one seemed to play the bad cop. Overall a standard IB interview, they asked for DCF cash flow, and everything on your resume. Be prepared to know your resume inside and out, because if you BS something, they will ask you indepth questions which I was not prepared to answer.
