I applied online and 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.

The process took 3 days - interviewed 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.

Interview Question – So day it's your first day on the job, and your boss suddenly gets called into a meeting and leaves you there. What do you do?   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – Decided to go into consulting instead

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Royal Bank of Scotland in March 2010.

Interview Details – Applied online with an employee reference, had a great experience communicating with the campus hiring team via email. The phone interview with a member of the capital markets team was pleasant and entirely fit focused. Super day final round was two back to back 1:1 interviews with members of the team I applied for, both were fit and technical balanced, with focus on macro knowledge of capital markets and financials.
