Credit Suisse is not only looking for hard-working, passioniate, and good people but expects a consistent track record of previous internship experiences. These may not necessarily include previous investment banking internships; however, they often include investment fund internships (public equity investing, private equity and venture capital, accounting, etc.). Interviewers also expect successful academic performance and extra-curricular success. Lastly, interviewers expect interviewees to have spoken with multiple current and former employees to understand why they are interested specifically in the bank.

This depends on the interviewer entirely. It's always good to keep up with what's going on in the news and know your resume inside and out. CS especially cares about fit and the culture overall is very friendly and open. Sometimes, the interviews have no technical questions at all, but sometimes they do - this depends on what group you are interviewing for.
