    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Royal Bank of Scotland (Stamford, CT) in June 2010.

    Interview

    The phone interview was basic resume dissecting. Then the candidates are invited to the office where there is a rotation with two employees and a tour of office. Everyone was nice some technical questions and personal questions. The company has great facilities and good people. I heard from another candidate that they picked him up from airport and paid for his hotel.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Royal Bank of Scotland.

    Interview

    Telephone interview, lasted 45 mins. Couple of weeks later had AC day in head office, pretty easy. Included written exercise which required us to find/summarise info from a huge binder, group exercise/presentation while being assessed by 4 people, 1-1 briefing of group exercise outcomes, then competency interview, then technical interview. Notified next day regarding pass/fail. Very good experience and RBS seems like a brilliant place to work.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Royal Bank of Scotland (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    It was quite a let-down. The HR at first appeared quite pushy and the whole process seem a bit of a rush. Two or maybe three HRs were sitting in the same room which made it sound like being called by someone from a lousy shopping mall.

    Interview Questions

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Royal Bank of Scotland (London, England (UK)) in November 2012.

    Interview

    No first round interview - straight to assessment centre. This was for their capital markets internship. Starting with a numerical test, then you get an hour to create a Powerpoint presentation, then the Group discussion is on the same topic. Then you have an interview based on the Group discussion, followed by a standad fit interview based on your CV.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Royal Bank of Scotland in February 2011.

    Interview

    Very typical questions: Why finance? Can you discuss something in the recent financial news that interests you? aWhy RBS? Are you okay with working in Stamford (not NY)? They were really nice throughout the process. And 2nd Round Interviews were on campus the day after 1st Rounds so the process was relatively stress free compared to Super Days.
