    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Royal Bank of Scotland.

    Interview

    First standard application form online. Then online tests (verbal and numerical)- these were quite difficult. From here, telephone interview. The interviewer was nice and helped put at ease. Questions were fairly standard. They only gave one week notice for the assessment centre, which was good as there was less time to stress about it. This had mixture of individual and group tasks but was quite a long and demanding day.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Royal Bank of Scotland.

    Interview

    Filled out an initial application form, this was then followed by an initial screening phone interview asking to clarify a few details as well as the few straight forward questions about why and how I applied for the position. This was then followed by a further more detailed phone interview taking around 30 minutes. where i was asked a few situational questions these were straightforward, finally they asked me to give details of when I followed each of the four main company ideals. After this they contacted me to attend an assessment day a month later, however i had already accepted an offer for a grad role so had to cancel my attendance.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Royal Bank of Scotland (London, England (UK)) in November 2013.

    Interview

    After completing online application through RBS, I had to do 3 separate tests online. First one was logical reasoning, second was quantitative and third was business scenario questions. Never had to do the third one before with other applications. It was mainly questions like what would you do if you had an argument with another co-worker. After passing the tests, they will invite you to arrange a time for phone interview. It was someone on the other end reading questions off a list and typing out your responses. The interview was awkward and they don't ask you more than 4-5 questions. There's no follow up and they expect you to talk for 30-45 minutes.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions were very standard. Mostly competency based, nothing to catch you out. I think the most important thing they look for is if you understand the details their grad program offers.   Answer Question
