I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Credit Suisse in June 2011.

Interview Details Is done through consultants. Two rounds of interview take place. One with the hiring manager who may be at AVP level and other by a VP or director. Primary concern is stability of the person coming in.

Interview Question – Why do you want to join a function which is not revenue generating ?   View Answer

Prime Services Interview

Prime Services
Mumbai

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Credit Suisse in November 2013.

Interview Details Hiring was through campus recruitment program. First step is shortlisting based on resume, anybody with intern in finance, CFA, good acads (read 8.5 above) were shortlisted. Second process was group discussion on general current topics. Emphasis is on involvement in the group and listening to others. Followed by GD, there were 2 to 3 rounds of interviews. First round was about getting to know about candidate, why finance kinda questions, checking basic knowledge on finance. Mostly they were interested in knowing your personality and its suitability for position offered. Second round was more of HR interview.

Interview Question – None of the questions were difficult or unexpected. Interview was more of discussion based.   Answer Question
