    Summer Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Royal Bank of Canada in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    The onsite interview consisted of three interviews with three different people. Each interviewer had a different background. One interviewer asked for you to create a stock pitch, which was difficult since I had never taken a finance class. The second interview was by far my worst. I was unprepared for the technical questions. They will ask about the company, so know everything about it. A brief look of wikipedia will not cut it. It seems that they wanted you to ask for help if you didn't know the questions.

    Investment Banking Analyst Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Royal Bank of Canada in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied and heard back a few days later with a first round interview. First round was with 2 VP level people, had a few basic technical questions, nothing too surprising. Second round was the next week, interviewed with the rest of the associates and analysts on the team. Last question threw me, but the rest of it was unexpected.
    The interview process was all good, what really pissed me off was that they basically leave you hanging, not one of the people I interviewed with responded to my follow up emails, and HR was also unresponsive

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Royal Bank of Canada.

    Interview Details

    First interview was basic questions related to fit for position. Subsequent were more detailed regarding type of analysis that would be required if chosen and what the learning curve might be. Nothing out of the blue or overly difficult. General understanding of finance and market movers.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing technical although the last stage I'm sure would require technical questions to test proficiencies.   Answer Question
