What was the assessment about? Math stuff or what. Gotta take it this week

Apr 1, 2019

It's a combination of verbal, math, and personality. I think they used pymetrics

Apr 1, 2019

How long after applying do you get notified about the assessment?

Apr 2, 2019

I got notified 2 days later

Apr 2, 2019

Heard from a VP that they are taking recruiting lightly now (diversity, women), they are ramping it up towards the fall

Apr 3, 2019

Superdays for diversity are this Friday; similar to last year. Core recruiting in July and Non-core in Aug - Sept.

May 10, 2019

Hey what was the link for the assessment? Applied recently and have not been asked to complete

May 11, 2019

SF office is wrapping up.

Chicago office is done

May 12, 2019

Any updates on NYC?

May 12, 2019

NYC spring round offers are all given out. Summer/Fall are still TBA.

+1 can confirm, heard next wave of superday invites will go out July

Damn that long? Okay. Thanks.

May 12, 2019

I heard from a VP that the process is rolling and will continue for the next couple of months. That is incorrect?

May 12, 2019

I mean that's just what I've heard. Banks don't do tons of superdays. An early spring superday, mid-summer superday, and late summer superday is about as "rolling" as it gets. What do you expect by the definition of rolling

Got offer from CS SF on Friday, think it was the last spot, but may be wrong

Jun 11, 2019

Congrats. I'm jealous that you have wrapped recruiting this early.

Jun 11, 2019

Is NYC still recruiting?

Greed is Good

Jun 11, 2019

Yes, and if they're sending out superday invites on July 1st as mentioned before, first rounds will have to take place in the next couple weeks.

Interested as well.

Jun 26, 2019

am also interested

Jun 14, 2019

Sponsors is nearly full in NY, SF is done, and rest of recruiting will kick off the first week of July but spots are filling up quickly

    • 2
Jun 15, 2019

"kick off" as in first rounds will be sent out during the first week of July?

Jun 18, 2019

The applications are still open so I'm assuming they're having multiple superdays a little later than July 1st?

Jun 18, 2019

Does the FIG group at CS have its own, separate recruiting process? If so, how does it work and does anyone know the timeline?

Jun 24, 2019

Has anyone recently gotten a first round for CS? When will they be handing them out?

    • 1
Jun 24, 2019

I have not and am still waiting, any insight?

Jun 25, 2019

i've heard from a contact that they are waiting until early august, but he's not as connected to recruiting as others are

Jul 1, 2019

So has nobody heard back yet about first rounds or anything?

Jul 1, 2019

Which office are you guys referring to?

Jul 1, 2019

NYC. According to another commenter, superday invites are July 1st. However, I haven't even heard anything about a first-round...

Jul 1, 2019

Same.

Jul 1, 2019

Did anyone get a superday invite today?

Jul 1, 2019

I have not even had a phone screen/first round. Are you a non-target that applied for the second wave?

Jul 1, 2019

@Laro98 I applied for the July wave -- was told by HR "My team will update you by early July on the next steps" I had three phone screens in June.

Jul 1, 2019

I've reached out to a contact to see how everything is shaping out and looks. I'll let you all know when I hear back.

Jul 1, 2019

Alright, sounds good.

Jul 1, 2019

Is anyone having trouble with CS emails? About 3 times now I've tried to send a follow up email to my cold emails and I'm met with an error message from the receiver. I find it hard to believe that all these people are jumping ship in the last 2 weeks.

Jul 1, 2019

Yeah - have that problem with all my contacts there.

Contact of mine at JP Morgan told me a lot of banks are starting to not let outside emails into their servers unless its going to someone in HR/recruiting. Credit Suisse could have adopted this recently for security purposes.

Jul 8, 2019

Just got an update email from CS requesting to fill out a special form. It was in reference to connections. Assuming superday updates will come soon.

"Thank you for participating in the selection process for our 2020 Americas IBCM Summer Analyst - New York Investment Banking-127881 position. To help us comply with regulatory and legal requirements, we are obligated to collect some additional information. Please note: we cannot proceed with your application for Credit Suisse until you have completed and submitted the required information. Therefore we kindly ask you to complete the following information within 48hrs."

Hadn't heard from them in three weeks till that.

Jul 8, 2019

I received an email a couple days ago from them saying I'm not moving on in the application process. Granted, I am a rising sophomore, but I'm assuming they've narrowed their pool of applicants. This was the first time I've heard from them since applying mid June.

Jul 8, 2019

Received same email about government connections.

Jul 8, 2019

It was followed pretty quickly about a virtual first round via web ex on either the 16th or 17th. First round interviews were released.

    • 1
Jul 8, 2019

Yeah, sorry. I received an email with a request to complete a compliance form.

Once I submitted that, campus recruitment sent me a first round interview request.

The first email came at around 3 EST (Compliance). The first round interview request came at 4.

Hope that clears it up.

Jul 8, 2019

Makes sense. Thanks

What were you referring to about the 16th and 17th? Is that when you got the email? Thought people got that email today?

    • 1
Jul 8, 2019

Yes, the first round's (webex) are on the 16th and 17th.

Jul 8, 2019

Ohhhh. Got it. Thanks man

Jul 9, 2019

Anybody else receive a first round besides nontarget?

    • 1
Jul 11, 2019

have a first round scheduled for next week for NYC office. Not really a target (West Coast think UCLA / USC / Cal)

Jul 11, 2019

1st round scheduled Monday as well

Jul 11, 2019

what does your application status say?

Jul 11, 2019

Mine says application in progress. Phone call with MD on Monday, so we'll see.

Jul 11, 2019

Any word on the S&T timeline? I spoke with HR some time back and they said applicants should hear back around September.

Jul 13, 2019

Anyone heard back from Capital Markets?

Jul 15, 2019

Any update on what CS FIG (Financial Institutions Group) is doing for their process? I heard they recruit separately

    • 1
Jul 15, 2019

Separate as in later or earlier?

Jul 15, 2019

No clue, I'm trying to figure it out with any monkeys on here who might have insight into how it works

Jul 15, 2019

Anybody have their first-round yet? If so, behavioral, technical?

    • 1
Jul 18, 2019

I had it yesterday! Zero technical questions. However, it was probably the most intense and personally shaped qualitative questions of this entire process. I'd recommend having two stories and examples for all basic questions.

Any updates on IBCM?

Heard recruitment starts later, can't confirm for a fact tho

Jul 16, 2019

Any insight on when the superdays are for NYC IB?

Jul 17, 2019

Had CS NY IB finished sending all 1st round invites?

Jul 17, 2019

Heard it will start in August from a VP

Jul 17, 2019

so there is another round of 1st round invites in Aug? or you mean superday is in Aug

Jul 17, 2019

^^^^ I have heard couple of people getting invited for 1st rounds recently

Jul 17, 2019

.

Jul 17, 2019

If I have a recommendation from a CS employee, does that guarantee me a first round invite?

Jul 17, 2019

Received a first round invite last week for Capital Markets; digital interview (not hirevue, web conference) that was scheduled for Monday the 15.

Withdrew my candidacy but thought it'd be helpful for those interested in ECM/DCM to know

Jul 18, 2019

My friend at CS told me NY office is only taking ~5 IB SA. good luck

Most Helpful
Jul 18, 2019

5 total? For the whole NY office? That has to be incorrect...

    • 5
Jul 18, 2019

Probably means how many spots remaining. Heard the same thing -- most of class is full and they have less than 10 spots remaining for the fall process (probably less)

Jul 19, 2019

I thought it sounded way off too, but he's an IB analyst involved with recruiting so I assume he's right. Said they're taking a lot less this 2020 SA class than usual

Jul 19, 2019

Anybody hear about the S&T timeline?

Jul 19, 2019

following

Jul 26, 2019

Applied long ago and still no update

Aug 2, 2019

Completed the assessment recently. I would guess video interviews should be coming out soon based off what the recruiter told me.

Jul 19, 2019

Anyone else just receive superday invite? NY Office

Jul 19, 2019

Superday invites went out.

    • 1
Jul 21, 2019

What division is the superday invite for?

Jul 22, 2019

Did you already have your Superday? If so, do you have any advice/tips? I have mine this Thu for IBCM.

Jul 19, 2019

Had first round on Wednesday and received my Superday invite for IBCM on July 25th at the NYC office. I'm a little panicked because my first round was pretty technical and I'm sure Superday is going to be even more technical. Any tips?

Jul 21, 2019

Is your first round a phone interview or video interview with analyst?

Jul 21, 2019

First round was a webex video call with a VP

Jul 21, 2019

I applied late june and I still haven't received any interviews. Any idea what my position will be?

Jul 22, 2019

Anyone got superday for Capital Market yet?

Ab

Jul 23, 2019

Does CS do hirevues?

Jul 24, 2019

Nope: online assessment -> first round video call interview -> Superday

    • 3
Jul 24, 2019

Can someone share which groups have started interviewing?

Jul 24, 2019

Sponsors, REGAL, FIG all have separate processes but general IBCM is going as well

Jul 24, 2019

Any word on S&T?

Jul 25, 2019

Have you received online assessment for S&T?

Jul 25, 2019

I have not. Was it only for CS targets?

Jul 24, 2019

Anyone received a call this afternoon from IBCM?

Jul 25, 2019

yes

Jul 25, 2019

Jul 25, 2019

Anyone have an idea on when to expect a response from CS in regards to the superday on (7/25)?

Jul 25, 2019

Associate told me that either today or tomorrow, but met someone at superday who said that HR told her next week so have no idea

Jul 26, 2019

Anyone hear back from the superday? .

Jul 26, 2019

Anybody hear anything from yesterday's superday

Jul 26, 2019

Everybody told me different things about when to expect offers.. but I think it's going to be early next week.

    • 1
Jul 26, 2019

An Analyst said next week. (2-10 days was the exact reply).

Aug 9, 2019

May I ask what questions were asked?

Jul 27, 2019

anticipation is killing me

Jul 27, 2019

chill bro. literally everyone had great conversations with interviewers on the super day.

    • 1
Jul 29, 2019

Same here. I hope today is the day!!

Jul 29, 2019

Capital markets or IBCM

Jul 29, 2019

Jul 29, 2019

No

Jul 29, 2019

Nope

Jul 30, 2019

Has anyone applying to APAC heard back from OT?

Aug 1, 2019

Did you receive the Online Test right after you submitted the application?

Aug 20, 2019

Yup, still no info yet

Jul 31, 2019

If anybody hears back please let us know

Jul 31, 2019

Yes pls. Pretty sure we can expect decisions tmro. Very strange it takes them so long..

Jul 31, 2019

I think they had a very strong candidate pool this superday

Jul 31, 2019

My friend is an analyst there and she told me that it might be taking longer because sophomore analysts are expected to accept/decline return offers by Friday and then they'll be letting us know because that opens up more spots. But literally its all I've been thinking about like every minute of the day so hopefully we won't be kept in suspense any longer....

Jul 31, 2019

Contact at CS emailed me late last night and said I should be hearing back soon. Not sure what "soon" entailed but was hoping it would be today / tomorrow

Aug 1, 2019

Omg still nothing

Aug 1, 2019

So so anxious ahhhh

Aug 1, 2019

Just got a call from an associate with an offer. Best of luck to you guys!

    • 3
Aug 1, 2019

At around what time if you don't mind me asking?

Aug 1, 2019

Just received a call like 15 mins ago, so ~1:30pm ET!

    • 2
Aug 1, 2019

are offers by group?

Aug 1, 2019

I did group-specific recruiting and the associate was one of the guys I interviewed with!

Aug 1, 2019

which group was it?

Aug 1, 2019

Will CS be handing out more first rounds? Or is it over

    • 1
Aug 1, 2019

I did group specific interviews within IBCM and when I spoke with my contact there before the superday, he said that they were considering potentially doing an extra round of superdays but he didn't say anything about first rounds, so I would assume no but that's far from confirmed

    • 1
Aug 1, 2019

did you hear back yet?

Aug 1, 2019

Did anyone get a call for IBCM?

Aug 1, 2019

No, did you?

Aug 1, 2019

Nope ughhh but also feel better knowing the call was group-specific and not IBCM lol

Aug 1, 2019

No they haven't made offers Yet for IBCM

Aug 1, 2019

does anyone know when the offers will start to come out?

Aug 1, 2019

WE WISH. All ive gotten from anyone at CS is "soon" lol

Aug 1, 2019

Anyone else hear today?

Aug 2, 2019

can someone email HR? or probably we are just waitlisted

Aug 2, 2019

I spoke with HR earlier this week and they told me they would let us know decisions by end of week but I still haven't heard anything...

    • 1
Aug 2, 2019
