Can anyone provide any intel on the assessment USB gives to an interview candidate.  It invalves a several hour simulation of a day in the life to see how you handle things. 

Any help will be appreciated.

I think they just ask you to sit down and write down the name of the firm.

Some time ago there was a period when I was processing trades for BDV and DBV for various accounts at the same time.  I had to be verrrrry careful.

Oy, UBS is what I meant.  I called them USB twice when I was sitting with the BM and he just smiled.  Apparently it is a common mistake. 

Does anyone know anything about the UBS assesment simulation?

Thanks,

No, it's not. Maybe with the general public but not with an applicant looking for a shot...
