Opening Bank Account with a pending Residence Permit

I am wondering if anyone knows if it's hard to get a bank account with a Bank like UBS/Credit Suisse with a residence permit that I applied for but have not received yet.

I plan to apply for my residence permit right away when I arrive in Zurich, but have heard that it may take a while for them to actually issue it. In the meantime, it would be beneficial if I could setup a bank account rather than wait for my residence permit to be issued.

Does anyone have any recommendations?

With no resident permit, the bank will request you some proofs about your vinculation with Switzerland. Your rent-contract plus your job-contract
should be enough.

Do you have an attestation of your registration / application for the permit at the gemeinde with your address on it?
If they did not give you one when you registered, go and ask, its a routine document.

The bank will open your account based on that.
