    Spring Week Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    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

    Interview Questions
    • I had lots of typical questions such as how would you invest £1 million, what is you biggest failures and how did you learn from it. The questions did not require much preparation other than learning a bit about the bank and the position.   Answer Question

    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'
        Answer Question

    no negotiation possible so I was told :-(
    It was a good offer nevertheless

    Associate Director, Client Advisor Interview

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

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5+ weeksinterviewed at UBS in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Strung out, lack of communication and poorly organised. Interview dates and times changed and had a number of visits for relatively short interviews. Didn't have any face to face contact with HR which was odd. Lack of any detailed feedback and information was not readily volunteered. Apparent low morale of interviewers. A great firm no doubt but received impression poor morale and politics.
