    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at UBS.

    Interview Details

    It started with a standard application for Summer 2013. I was then invited to take a Phone interview with HR then an Assessment Centre.

    The phone call was bog standard competencies as well as some UBS based questions.

    The AC had a presentation based on information, a group assessment & an interview. The process was really friendly and the questions certainly weren't too taxing. It's a shame I messed up the group exercise by not inputting.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 8 weeksinterviewed at UBS.

    Interview Details

    Applied through program with the help of connections, and as a result was a pretty easy process. Most applicants tend to be entering their junior year so the questions tend to not be too technical. This is a very good program though that is helpful to anyone who wants to get introduced to the both the financial world and, obviously, mainly the wealth management world.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at UBS.

    Interview Details

    Initial Phone interview - all competency based. Basically wanted you to come up with various scenarios of when you'd show a specific competency or skill. Very much a Q&A - not much general conversation going on and very one way. Didn't get a placement but my friend did following just the telephone interview - no face to face.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at UBS.

    Interview Details

    1. Online application. Standard competency questions plus a numerical and logical test.

    2. Telephone interview (why UBS, why trading, what's going on in the news, how would you invest 1 million, do you have any questions for us, how is UBS doing).

    Fairly easy interview but say something creative, also UBS conversion rate is not very high at the moment

    Head of Department Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at UBS.

    Interview Details

    Applied for the job in summer took 2-3 months to get through all interview rounds. Overall a very good process and positive experience. I found the interviewers very friendly and personable. Since I would be working alongside these stakeholders, the interview process only added to my drive to get the position. It was a pleasant chat about my skills/experience. The only interviewer I met face to face was the HR rep. Final stage of the process is the background check.

    Interview Questions
    • None - all pretty standard. If you know your area of expertise it is not difficult.
      HR interview questions follow a standard competency/situational based format. -- One of the questions was 'When was the last time you made a bad decision and what did you learn from it'
