    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.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Royal Bank of Scotland.

    Interview Details

    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.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Royal Bank of Scotland in November 2012.

    Interview Details

    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.

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

    Interview Details

    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.
