Interviewed at RBC Wealth Management

Interview Details – Interview process was a little dragged out. I spoke with three different recruiters during the process. Each one was more helpful than the previous. The initial phone interview was just getting a sense of my personality, and the in person interview was much more job specific.

Risk Analyst Interview

Risk Analyst

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 days - interviewed at RBC Wealth Management.

Interview Details – I mailed my resume to a recruiter, who emailed me back within a day or two asking if I could speak on the phone later in the day. Recruiter was very friendly, basically just asked if I thought I was creative, analytical, etc and give an example. So I talked about a project I worked on at my research assistant job. It was actually a pretty awkward interview, I don't think the recruiter directed it very clearly and I was definitely not sure at times what exactly I was supposed to be talking about. Maybe that was the point, I don't know. Good luck.

Interview Question – "Why do you want to work in finance?": I guess this wasn't unexpected, I just didn't have a good answer, because I didn't really want it that much. I was mainly looking at other research analyst jobs, and the RBC Capital Markets thing just came up on my search. I don't even remember what I said.   Answer Question

Very Easy Interview

Associate Director Interview

Associate Director

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at RBC Wealth Management in January 2010.

Interview Details – The hiring manager had no clue what the positon entailed, I met with the business head and he was thrilled that we spoke the same language. He had a few choice words to say about the financial control group (not very nice words). He mentioned he was sick of doing their job for them.

Interview Question – No questions were asked. I did the majority of the talking, explaining what I did in my previous life.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation. I asked for the high range for the job and got it.

Software Developer Interview

Software Developer
New York, NY

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at RBC Wealth Management in September 2011.

Interview Details – The interview came through a recruiter. There was a 1 hour phone interview to discuss my profile, experience etc. This was followed by an onsite interview. The onsite interview was 3 one hour sessions with 3 different team members. One thing about the interview was that the interviewers did not seem to have had a discussion after each session, so that their questions revolved around the same problem domain / aspects.

Interview Question – Design a program to build and update a market depth book.   View Answer

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 6 months - interviewed at RBC Wealth Management in December 2011.

Interview Details – Number of interviews from a number of team members (junior and senior). Trying to expand presence in the US market. Acting cautious - not sure if they want to hire at all levels. While this may be good strategy in an established market (from example Canada), in the US market the process can be long and convoluted.
