    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at UBS (New York, NY) in October 2011.

    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.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at UBS in May 2008.

    Interview

    Bit of a weird one...I was referred by my (then current) employer from overseas (they knew I was moving overseas), so had an initial phone interview which was a lot more technical than I expected. This was followed by another phone interview about a month later, and then a 3-person panel interview when I arrived in London.
