    Intranet Developer (Placement) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Edinburgh, Scotland (UK)

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. 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.
