Spring Intern Interview

Spring Intern

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Royal Bank of Scotland.

Interview Details – I was contacted via email to inform me of an on campus assessment centre the following week. The assessment centre consisted of two interviews. Both had a large competency component to them with the second interview also posing some logical questions. Overall the interviews were reasonably laid back with both interviewers seeming friendly and approachable to any questions that i had afterwards.

Interview Question – how can you cut a cake into 8 identical slices with only three cuts.   View Answer

Graduate Trainee Interview

Graduate Trainee
London, England (UK)

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Royal Bank of Scotland in November 2013.

Interview Details – After completing online application through RBS, I had to do 3 separate tests online. First one was logical reasoning, second was quantitative and third was business scenario questions. Never had to do the third one before with other applications. It was mainly questions like what would you do if you had an argument with another co-worker. After passing the tests, they will invite you to arrange a time for phone interview. It was someone on the other end reading questions off a list and typing out your responses. The interview was awkward and they don't ask you more than 4-5 questions. There's no follow up and they expect you to talk for 30-45 minutes.

Interview Question – Questions were very standard. Mostly competency based, nothing to catch you out. I think the most important thing they look for is if you understand the details their grad program offers.   Answer Question
