    Hiring and interview process is very slow and pathetic. I went through 8 rounds of interview in span of 2 months before getting hired. and strange thing is that in every round of interview the questions were almost same.

    • I was asked to design an application with a single page UI which can show the details of the employees of an organization using any framework I am comfortable with. Then the interviewer asked the questions why I chose this particular framework rather than others, asked if some additional features were added like session handling, concurrent access and multiple browser signin by same users, how to handle those scenarios and then how can I improve the performance of the application.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Royal Bank of Scotland in March 2011.

    Interview Details

    The initial round was a telephonic round. the interview lasted for more than an hour in which I was grilled about Java, Unix and SQL. The interviewer was very knowledgeable fellow, the questions were pretty tough and at one time it seemed as if they were hiring me to build a rocket for NASA in Java.

    It was followed by two written tests , A Video Conference and a one to one with a project manager all in the same day.

    The telephonic and the other interviews were about 10 days apart.

    Good experience over all.

    • RBS is losing money, you work for a good organization. Why do you want to join us ?   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    Yes, I was able to negotiate as I had other offers in hand as well. The HR guys do not budge easily untill you are really special or the project requires you badly. The negotiation would not fetch you a very huge amount of money, the revised offer would be close to what you were offered previously.
