Sales and Trading Summer Analyst Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
No Offer
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at UBS.

Interview

Applied through online and had a phone interview before being invited to AC. Had to take one numercial test (paper, 20 questions in 20 min). Also had a case study (30 minutes to prepare). Had just one interview all the questions were behavioral.

Interview Questions

  • Most of the questions were behavioral so guess the most difficult question was what are the recent trends in the market?   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at UBS (New York, NY) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Received email to set up phone call. Call lasted about 30 min. I was then invited for a super day. Spoke to four people for 20 minutes each. Received offer 4 days later.

    Interview Questions

    • Would you rather have a stack of coins as tall as the Empire State, or many stacks of coins on a 1 x 1 table going up to a ceiling 2 meters above it? (Not necessarily these numbers, but hopefully you get the idea)

      I mentioned I was taking Financial Economics in the first round so I was asked for the definition of put and call options.

      Also, during the phone interview -- "Do you follow the markets? What did you read about today?"

      Super day was mostly behavioral. Although I got the markets question again. Also, was asked to pitch a stock.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Did not try to negotiate.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at UBS (New York, NY) in December 2011.

    Interview

    Submitted my resume/cover letter through school's career page, but I don't think that's how I got the interview. They were on campus and I went out with a few of their reps to dinner and bars after an information session; I was told that night I'd get an interview.

    There were two phone interviews, mostly behavioral with one or two markets related questions. I was then invited to the Superday, which consisted of six 30-minute interviews, back to back. Again, the interviews were mostly behavioral but a little bit more geared toward market-based questions. One guy asked me what stocks I was following, to which I had no good answer. Luckily the next interviewer came in just in time to interrupt us. I also got a really easy probability question from one of the interviewers.

    Interview Questions

    • This wasn't difficult, but it's the only specific question I can remember.

      You're playing basketball and you're down by 2. You know you can hit a 2-pointer to tie the game with 28% probability, and then go on to win the game in overtime with 50% probability. Alternatively, you know you can hit a 3-pointer and win with 15% probability. Which do you take?   2 Answers

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at UBS.

    Interview

    Relatively standard telephone interview. Lasted 20 minutes. Predominantly skills orientated questions with a few technical at the end. Ideal preparation would have been to relate experiences on CV to important skill sets, for example teamwork, time management, working under pressure ect.
