Our founder, Alfred Escher, envisioned not just a bank, but the future of an entire nation. This foresight made it possible to expand the Swiss railroad, build tunnels through mountains and in the process, pave the way for a new era of prosperity.

    Contractor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Credit Suisse (New York, NY) in April 2011.

    Interview

    After a successful one-month trial as a contractor I was brought on-board as an Assistant Vice President. I reported directly to a group head, who in turn, reported directly to the CEO and Executive Board. My trial was basically my interview. My group head learned all he needed to know about me through my performance on the job.
