    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at RBC.

    Interview

    The job I interviewed for and the job they actually wanted me to do once I started were completely different. During the interview, they talked it up like it was the exact job I had spent 6 months searching for. It wasn't a permanent FTE role, but it was a 6-month CTH, and they were sure that I would be converted at that time.

    Interview Questions

    • Did I have experience coaching leaders from across the organization who were resistant to change?   1 Answer
    • I am adding a comment...when I interviewed, the job title was different, much more senior. I had no idea I was going to be a 'Project Manager'. Also, when I started, I didn't do any of the things we talked about in the interview.   1 Answer

    Marketing Specialist Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at RBC in August 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online late June; got a call late July (almost a month later) for a phone screen. Once I passed the phone screen round, it took me another month to get an in-person interview on the books. Reason being I was going to go out of town in between the phone screen and scheduled in-person time for a family emergency and they were fairly inflexible on how the interview was conducted (in person vs. Skype), so just be aware of that.

    Interview was with the hiring manager, pretty standard process with the exception of some tricky questions. After the interview was over, I was told the process was known to take several months and that I was one of the first interviews despite the fact that I applied for the position many months ago at that point (red flag 1). When I asked for a business card, the interviewer wouldn't give it to me and insisted that I work through the recruiter to reach out (red flag 2). Haven't heard back, but I've moved on.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at RBC.

    Interview

    Applied through their website. Had an initial phone interview. Directly called to super day after that. Nice experience. They were not sure about H1 sponsoring policies. Had 3 rounds. Technical round was easy and questions were majorly based on computer networks fundamentals.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at RBC (Jersey City, NJ) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I applied through my campus, and first had a 30 minute phone interview. She was really nice and we talked mostly about my resume and why I wanted to work at RBC Capital Markets. The position was for Operations Summer Analyst at RBC Capital Markets. I asked her questions about the position and the firm, and we had a very conversational, informal talk. Then I went to their super day in Jersey City, NJ and had two 2-on-1 interviews. The interviewers were all young and really friendly. We did a 15-minute Excel exercise as well. They got back to me about a week later.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at RBC (Jersey City, NJ) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter about their opportunities, and after I confirmed my interest I was scheduled for a phone call to talk about the position more. Phone call was very short (10ish minutes) and asked standard pre-interview behavioral questions. I received an interview invitation shortly after the phone call for the next week. The interview invitation said it would be three 30 minute interviews, but I only had 2. The first interview was called "technical" but I was not asked any technical questions, just general talking about my resume and projects. The second interview was mostly the same but with a different person. The interviews were overall very comfortable and conversational, with very few questions. I mostly just explained my resume and projects to both interviewers and that was it. I received a phone call with an offer 2 business days after the interview. However, the deadline for acceptance was only one week with no option to extend the deadline, even with other interviews already scheduled.
