How important are university grades?

Good evening,

Here I am with another question.
I am doing my Master's at HSG and I would like to get some part-time working student jobs (relevant to my field) during my studies, because I value work experience higher than academic achievements. However, I saw some job ads for fresh graduates that required a minimum GPA of 5.3.

Is this the norm, or most places don't put too much weight on the grades? (Mostly interested in banks, CS, UBS, or insurance companies, etc.) Since working next to my degree will obviously lower my average, but I will gain other knowledge/experience that IMO offsets that, not sure what the recruiters stance is on this.

Appreciate all the replies/opinions on this matter!
