One week later, I got a call from HR that they want to offer me the position. The interviews were fairly easy. Just be yourself and they'll like you.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at RBC (New York, NY) in January 2010.

    Interview

    The hiring manager had no clue what the positon entailed, I met with the business head and he was thrilled that we spoke the same language. He had a few choice words to say about the financial control group (not very nice words). He mentioned he was sick of doing their job for them.

    • No questions were asked. I did the majority of the talking, explaining what I did in my previous life.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation. I asked for the high range for the job and got it.

    Associate Director Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at RBC (Boston, MA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Initial phone interview with HR, phone interview with hiring manager, flown up for face to face interview. The questions were pretty typical and run of the mill. HR requested I prepare 3 15 minute presentations for the face to face interview that were not used. I would have appreciated being told of this, as this took a long time to prepare for. Additionally they seemed to have no real structure for the face to face interviews.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at RBC (New York, NY) in November 2014.

    Interview

    I received a phone call from RBC saying that I got an onsite interview. I went to the site and had two separate interviews. Each room had two interviewers. The interviewers were very nice and seemed genuinely interested in what I had to say. Even though I did not have the financial background, there was still opportunity for me to work with RBC.

    Interview Questions

    • Why do you want to work for an investment bank? This was difficult because of my lack up financial background.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    Although it was a great opportunity, it was not within my field and I was unsure if I would truly be happy. Also, it was below the pay that I was willing to accept.
