    Easy Interview

    2 behavioral interviews. Both were done over the phone as I was living in the United States at the time of the interview. The interview process was fairly easy with general behavioral questions about strengths, weaknesses, leadership, etc.

    QA Automation Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Royal Bank of Scotland (New York, NY) in April 2019.

    Interview

    Interview process was having 1 written, 2 technical, 2 managerial and 1 hr round.
    Criteria was 5+yrs of experience in automation
    Mine was 4.3 however i got an invite so i attended the interview.

    Written round was having 20 questions on Java which were easy to medium complexity having 30 mins cut off time.

    Technical f2f round lasted around 45 mins.

    Gave the first round and I was told to wait for the second round.
    Waited for around 3hrs and meanwhile observed the candidates having higher years of experience are preferred for the f2f interview first.

    After waiting for 3hrs got a f2f interview and answered all the questions.
    After that I was told that I was not able to clear the 2nd round.

    What I conclude from whole experience is that please make sure that you are meeting the yrs of experience expectation regardless of invite received or not.

    My 7 hrs wasted, please do the math and then attend the interview.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Royal Bank of Scotland in November 2015.

    Interview

    I interviewed for the Conduct & Regulatory Affairs position, London office. The process took roughly a month. After applying online, did a situational judgement test, one logical test, one numerical test. Five days later, received an invitation for a phone call. RBS did strength-based interview, not competency-based. So it may be quite tricky for American students. Overall the process was good, but question types really toughened the work. The interviewer sounded uninterested in my answers throughout the interview, which was bad. There was barely any interactions between she and I. She just said "good, next question" after every answer. Kinda boring.

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Royal Bank of Scotland (Telephone, TX) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Telephone interview (strength based). They arranged a time to call about a week in advance, saying the interview would last around 30 minutes. Interviewer was not allowed to rephrase questions, and stuck to a predetermined script. Interview ended up taking only 20 minutes, and no advice was given as to the length of answers required.

    Interview

    One on campus interview, one phone interview due to snow storm. Honestly amongst most banks probably the most casual and comfortable interview environment. Most of the emphasis is on why banking, why RBS, and why you are a good candidate.
