    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at UBS (Washington, DC) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and received an email within less than 5 business days to schedule a phone conversation, which served as a basic screening. Following the screening, we quickly scheduled an in-person interview with the financial advisors (the two teams I would be supporting). Arrived for the interview and both teams interviewed me simultaneously with two different business platforms. Questions were behavioral based to gauge my general approach to processes and solving problems.
    *Place some effort on your ability to manage the room, if faced with multiple teams to support.

    UBS Wealth Management Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at UBS (Washington, DC) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Interviewer was kind of abrasive, I think he wanted to see if I had thick skin but he came off as a jerk. Other than that we went over my resume and talked about what the internship was. From our discussion there was nothing appealing about the internship other than putting UBS on your resume. My advice would be to know your resume and story very well and also be able to talk about your relevant course work.

    The interview was very personal. As all interview goes, the questions depend largely on the personality of the interviewer and what they are looking for. Don't hesitate to ask questions and know exactly why you want to go into this field before going for the interview.

    Wealth Management Intern Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at UBS (Washington, DC) in November 2012.

    Interview

    I emailed the branch manager and he brought me in for an interview. It was pretty straight forward he wanted to get a feel for who I was and if I would be a good employee. I was applying for an internship during a semester of classes so I was only available Monday, Wednesday and Friday. I was asked a lot of questions based on my resume and why I was interested in wealth management...things like that. I was also asked about UBS as a company and what I knew about the current market.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at UBS (Washington, DC) in August 2009.

    Interview

    I was given the opportunity to interview for this position in DC as I had worked in the Boston office as an intern the summer before. I first had an initial phone interview which was pretty standard, focused more on general questions and job experience. A few days later I was contacted and invited to come to DC to for an in person interview. The in person interview consisted of two phases. I was interviewed by one of the Advisors and then interviewed by HR. This interview was much harder than the phone interview. There was a lot of situational questions and a lot of market data questions. Know all current relevant data. Some questions were very difficult and I think were more to see how I reacted and responded then for the actual "correctness" of the response. Then a few days later I was called and offered a position. Which then involved passing a drug test and background check.
