I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Credit Suisse in January 2011.

Interview Details they interview was very technical. They asked about stocks you would invest in and why. they also asked about how you felt about the future of the economy and where the S&P will be in a year. They randomly asked you about current events that were going on in the US and how you felt about them. Very tough for a first round intern position

Interview Question – What exact number will the S&P be at in a year and why?   View Answer

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Credit Suisse in January 2010.

Interview Details First interview was with a senior trader - very informal, all fit, mostly cared about your particular reasons and interests in Credit Suisse, and why them over other i-banks. Final round - was a 1 to 1 interview with 8 different sales personnel and traders in the office (they promised 3-4 over the phone). one was a stress interview, where i was asked to interview him about anything. no math, no brainteasers, only behavioral, weakness, fit, love for Credit Suisse, and situational (if you sold someone faulty share of Toyota and they tanked, what would you say).

Interview Question – If you sold a client shares of Toyota, and they tanked the next day, how would you go about it?   Answer Question
