    Contractor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at UBS (Chicago, IL) in January 2013.

    Interview

    I was an intern first. I spent 6 months being an intern. After my internship was over, I was given a contractual position. The interview was essentially my time as an intern. I had to have my work portfolio put together for them to see if it was worth giving me the contract position. I had a group interview with everyone in my department the weeks before my internship was over.
