    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    Applied online. Then I was invited to do the online tests. A couple weeks later, I was called by the HR for the telephone interview. The interview lasted 15-20mins. Questions asked were "Why IB?","Why USB?","What do you think of the impact of last financial crisis?",+ competency-based questions. Then I was invited for AC. On the AC day, candidates were asked to re-do the numerical tests first. After passing the benchmark, successful candidates were given 30 mins to prepare for a 10 mins presentation using cases provided. Then three 1-1 interviews were held, followed by a group discussion.

    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.
