    Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in North Sydney
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in North Sydney
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Credit Suisse in November 2009.

    Interview Details

    Initial contact with the company was via a recruiter who set up the first interview with the Director of the team.

    First interview lasted 2 hours, and questions included the usual "what did you do in your last job", "why did you leave", as well as DCM-specific questions. Shortly after leaving the interview, I received a call from the Director asking to set up another interview the following afternoon to meet the rest of the team (five others in total).

    Second interview was to last a couple of hours, however was approximately six hours long, and culminated in having some beers in the boardroom with the team. Primary aim of the process was to meet the other members of the team as well as have the opportunity to ask appropriate questions about team structure and associated specialties.

    Everyone who interviewed me were extraordinarily knowledgeable in their specific field, and had no problems in answering any questions. Consequently, I perceived the team to be young and dynamic, with a strong desire to outperform for FY2010. In addition, I felt that I would not only be able to offer my time and skills in pitches and other job responsibilities, but also my opinions about the market, where our priorities should be, as well as how to execute our strategy for 2010.

    Very happy with the position I was offered

    Interview Details

    HR calls and helps set up an interview. Once you drive out there was a two person interview. Most of the questions were behavioral. Bring up past experiences from college or part time jobs that answer the questions. All of the questions demonstrate your leadership ability/ability to handle compromising questions.

    Real Returns Program Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY (US)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY (US)
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Credit Suisse.

    Interview Details

    I applied for Credit Suisse's first attempt at a return-to-work program, called Real Returns. The initial HR phone interview was a standard 30 minutes get- to- know you interview which went very well. I then passed off to another young HR contact to come in to interview on two separate days for two separate internship opportunities. The HR contact could give me no background information on either project team.

    The first was for a Risk project that was just getting off the ground and was inappropriate for a 12 week intern program since there was no mapped out objectives for the intern. The second opportunity was more promising but the hiring manager could not get to work that day and sent in a contractor to the interview (who had no real hiring power) rather than rescheduling. A total waste of my time. Rather than a "thanks, but no thanks", I then never heard another word from the company again after giving them two days of my time to interview for a short 12 week internship.

    So glad not to have ended up there.
