    Technology Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    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.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at RBC (New York, NY) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online and through career center, met people at a school event prior to applying which helped. Stayed in touch with them and got the interview about 2 weeks later. Interviewer was someone from my school and asked mostly fit/behavioral with some technicals sprinkled throughout. Questions ranged in difficulty and it seemed like they were mostly looking for the general concepts to show you knew what you were talking about. The entire call was around 40-45 minutes.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at RBC (Saint Louis, MO) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The format was an on campus interview. Based on talking to others most people had behavioral interviews. My interviewer focused (a bit too much in my opinion) on technicals. Overall straight forward process came back with results of the interview quickly. Employees were helpful throughout the application process, but in the end not a good fit for me personally.
