    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at UBS (Weehawken, NJ) in January 2012.

    Interview

    It was an oncampus recruitment. Had 2 interviews on the first day. Just asked about the resume, nothing technical.

    Then had a superday with 3 interviews with project manager and a group discussion.

    I was called again to meet the MD to review my resume, since i was from hardware background and why did i want to go to software.

    No technical questions at all.

    Application

    Interview

    Was invited for on campus interview first, which is basically a discussion of your resume. Then got invited to superday at their office location in Jersey. People were great. They changed the interview pattern a little, it's more technical now with a a few written coding questions.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at UBS (London, England (UK)) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Talk with the recruiter about roles and about location London vs Zurich. Followed by 2 phone screens on the same day. Both went fine and recruiter told me I would advance to onsites but he wants to match me with more teams so he asked me for a third phone screen. Went OK but not great...
    No reply for weeks after that... finally after pushing I was told that there was a better candidate found....

    This is my first ever interview review... but it was a total joke... Total disrespect for my time.
