Intranet Developer (Placement) Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Royal Bank of Scotland.
Interview Details – A CV sent to their representatives and got an interview.
The interview is pretty simple but includes weird questions like '2 of your employees are in disagreement and you cannot change their mind. What do you do?'. Ridiculous for a student placement.
90% of the interview is competency based.
10% is easy web development questions which anyone would be able to do.
The staff who interview you are unprofessional and give each other glares when you get a question wrong. They don't seem to know much about their field either.
With this sort of recruitment process, expect to be given easy and boring tasks that don't challenge you. I found this out from a friend who was employed there.
Interview Question – 2 of your employees are in disagreement and you cannot change their mind. What do you do? Answer Question
Graduate Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Royal Bank of Scotland in February 2012.
Interview Details – Thoroughly professional and quick process. Usual stages like Online tests, Telephone interview and an assessment centre
Head of User Experience Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Royal Bank of Scotland in September 2010.
Interview Details – Recommended within the organisation after interviewing for another contract role. 1st stage was a telephone interview, 2nd stage face to face with Senior Manager, 3rd stage was with potential peers and the swiss citizen that I would replace.
Interview Question – Given that we have a mature process in place do you feel able to support it as is, going forward? View Answer
