UBS SA 2020

Any updates on the recruitment timeline? I got an email from a campus recruiter about two weeks ago stating that applications were live and will be reviewed on a rolling basis.

Can anyone correct me if I'm wrong, but hasn't UBS been live for quite a while now? I remember doing an app before Big Dawg 5 received that email.

Yes and No.

I don't know what school you go to but UBS already came to my campus last Spring on the day before applications opened up.

They are taking diversity candidates pretty quickly, I know a guy who's accepted an offer with them.

I did the test but got a rejection after. I was told that the tests don't affect your candidacy so I am confused

Spoke to an HR rep today from NY who I was connected with through an MD. Told me that apps are being reviewed now, and they will send out first rounds that take place in August (same as a HireVue but different company). Then, superdays will take place September/October and will be "wrapped up before the holidays"

If they're not interested in you right off the bat they'd send you a rejection letter whilst selecting potential candidates to interview.

Emailed our target's recruiter yesterday, haven't heard back yet. I would assume its August/September given what the above has said. Sophomores are already getting cut I guess, so if you haven't been yet, I would assume that's a good sign.

Any news on S&T? Is it a rolling or has all hirevues been sent out at one time?

Aug 31, 2019 - 11:37am

Recruiter told me they're sending video interviews end of August. So maybe we'll get something next week?

Is UBS SA 2020 closed for IBD already? On website the only ib position available is corporate client solutions

For anyone wondering, applications start to be reviewed next week, just the CV's and the videos. This is for FT and SA. However, if you get through that you go straight to a final round which I do not believe will be until later on in September.

For EMEA no, I believe the video interviews are automatic and are sent once you pass the tests.

There was a superday last week on Friday, September 6th. Just an FYI for this thread

I did the numerical reasoning test two weeks ago and just received the video interview information today. I'm at a nontarget for NYC FT IBD, so it seems they're just starting to send out non-target video interviews.

They aren't starting the sophomore process until mid-October around

So is UBS not done with NY SA 2020 recruiting? I had assumed they were all done at the end of September

Oct 8, 2019 - 4:31pm

Can't remember when I submitted for SA 2020 ib at UBS. I applied to NY, SF, and Houston. Then, I got the aptitude test invite. But, I didn't end up doing it within the 5 day gap. But, what was odd was I kept on getting invites to do the aptitude test even after the 5 day period. Anyhow, today I ended up getting a video interview invite for the SF office (even tho I didn't do the aptitude test) which I'll make sure to do lol. But, it seems like they've already had a super day. So, I don't know if they're trying to have another one or what. I'll keep you updated. I have no contacts in that office either.

apparently the tests are in a piloting stage in the Americas; they don't actually count for the application process
