    Summer Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Saint Louis, MO

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    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.

    Average Interview

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at RBC (Ithaca, NY) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Very conversational behavioral interview with nothing technical. Discussed role of the intern and the interviewer's jobs as well. Pretty simple, just know facts about the company and the specific internship you are applying for. This position was for the global markets analyst for RBC Capital Markets. Just be ready to talk about your resume and why you want to work at RBC.
