Vice President - Investment Banking Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
The process took 6 months - interviewed at Royal Bank of Canada in May 2009.
Interview Details – Process was long long long with no clear outcome (except no offer) and formal environment. Not sure what they were looking for but not really interested after meeting. They look for one type of candidate with no understanding of specific market experience and advantages of thinking outside the box. They say they want to be Tier 1 bank but i can not think how this will be possible given their existing and prospective resources.
Interview Question – Example of transactions and variety of deals. View Answer
QA Interview (Neutral Experience; Difficult Interview)

Customer Services Representative Interview (Neutral Experience)
Interviewed at Royal Bank of Canada
Interview Details – Dropped off resume in person to a local branch. Branches do not hire individually and passed on resume to HR. Got a call from HR a week later about a phone interview the next day and to complete an online questionnaire. Questionnaire takes about 20min to complete and is all behavioural questions.
Phone interview: Questions fall under "customer service", "sales", "problem resolution" categories. Lasted about 45min. Asked questions like "why a teller", "what does customer service mean to you", "tell me a time you went above and beyond customer expectations". Talked about few items on resume.
Got a callback a couple days after about an in-person interview with a local branch manager.
In-person interview: Lasted about 30min. More like a chat than an interview. Asked questions like "what are your short-term and long-term goals", "tell me about yourself". Explained in more detail about position.
Got a call back the next day making the offer.
Interview Question – Nothing really difficult Answer Question
Negotiation Details – N/A
