Anyone been through this traineeship? Can share more about it? Thanks!

dont bother
 
For those looking to apply this year, I'd say dont't bother. Chances of converting into a full time role is almost 0. Majority of you aren't going to get licensed so will likely be relegated to worthless tasks like generating reports and data entry. Salary is also low too.

Granted the people are nice but there is a general distaste for the program by existing trainees and even their full time employees. If you want to be low cost labor for a year, then maybe this is for you

Source: am going through it now.

Sad especially when pay is just 2.5k

Unregistered 22-03-2021 05:16 PM

Thanks for your post... I just completed the online tests and invited to the video interview... But I guess i won't bother continuing the application.

They posted on my careers future website, salary is indeed $2,500.

Is it 3 days a week? They did mention in the job post "work/study opportunity".
Do you think it is negotiable to have it as a full time job with higher salary? (I've already graduated with 2 years unrelated experience)

I got a call from the HR arranging me for an interview. After reading through this thread, I'm just gonna attend the interview with 0 hope.

Wouldnít recommend at all
 
Your potential LMs might promise to convert you but thatís BS. A lot of people were lied to. Fact is that their headcount has probably already been decided. And UBS is notorious for wanting to keep that headcount minimum to reap max profits. Plus if youíre in IB, itís full hours for 5 days a week. You show up at 730am, no proper lunch break (expected to eat at desk), and leave god knows when. $2.5k is a big joke.

This is probably good opportunity for the manager to hire minority candidates. Nowadays, diversity and inclusion is also part of performance rating for managers working on big companies.

Completely agree.
