Analyst Interview

Anonymous Employee  in  Houston, TX
Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
Application Details

I interviewed through college or university. The process took a day - interviewed at Royal Bank of Scotland in October 2010.

Interview Details

I did not have any contact with the company previously. I simply dropped my resume online and was asked to interview while they were on campus at my university. I was interviewed by two men: one VP and one analyst. The interview was almost entirely technical and one of them seemed to enjoy watching me suffer through the interview. I did okay at best.

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took a day - interviewed at Royal Bank of Scotland in October 2009.

    Interview Details

    The interviewer was cold and asked few questions. Not very interested in the process. Did grill me on parts of my resume. Be prepared to talk about modeling and other financial pieces. Other than that I just ran through my resume. I am not sure what she was looking for exactly. Did not give me much time to ask her questions.

    There are three phases of recruitment process. First one is phone interview - here your foreign language skills are tested and so are you verbal presentation skills. Second one is one to one interview, very typical - asking about your motivations and psychological traits. Third one is interview with HR employee - to test you psychologically and to check your motives and also to negotiate salary.

    I interviewed through other source. The process took a day - interviewed at Royal Bank of Scotland in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    Interview was quite technical in nature. Everything related to banking and finance were asked by the interviewer. Also, there were certain misleading information was provided relating to the growth and salary increment in interview as well as orientation + Induction. HR people are themselves not clear about the policies they will beat around the bush but will not answer your query.
