    Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Stamford, CT
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Royal Bank of Scotland (Stamford, CT) in March 2013.

    Interview

    It took two one on one interviews to get the position. First with line management and second with senior management. The interview process was very informal within a friendly and relaxed environment. It was obvious that personality and character was as important as work experience.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Royal Bank of Scotland (Salt Lake City, UT) in February 2013.

    Interview

    Remote interview initially. Gave me 2 take-home tests which took around 25 hours to complete. Nailed the first one & pretty certain I got the 2nd one correct as well. Pointed out some bugs in the sample results.

    Since this was a real production code problem, I probably fixed it for them. So, I don't have a very high opinion of the company or the individual that interviewed me for it, who is a VP.

    They wanted me to pay to come out and interview with them in Utah. I declined. Very cheap company.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Royal Bank of Scotland (Salt Lake City, UT) in October 2012.

    Interview

    One day of interviews. 3 interviews. First with the manager, second with two team leads, and the third on the phone with a corporate head. Very quick and painless. From first call to an offer made took about 2 weeks.

    Interview Questions

    • They seemed more interested in the job I was leaving than the job at hand.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    They gave an offer, it was fair, but allowed no room for negotiation. Everyone at the location makes the same amount for the same position. They did not allow me to counter. So you either accept it or not.

    Operations Analyst Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Royal Bank of Scotland.

    Interview

    I met with a total of 4 individuals when I interviewed for the firm. All of the questions were related to what the current role entailed and my background and professional experience.
    I met with the Managing Director, two of the VPs and another analyst. They were all very professional and laid back. No major surprises, as long as you know your information and can back it with real examples you will be fine.

    Interview

    I applied to one job, but qualified for a few so I had two interviews by two teams. I applied online and a RBS rep got back to me within a week. The process took three-four weeks from application to interview. Interview was fairly easy. The only difficult part is that you are being interviewed by 2 teams of 3 people performing 3 different functions so it's hard to cater to one function and show why you are a good fit.

    Complaint is that RBS HR at the Stamford, NY is incredibly slow from application, interview, and response. They did not even reply with a definitive yes or no. Look, if you're scared of hurting my feelings, I can deal with rejection, but I cannot get back wasted time so please don't waste my time on my job search.

    Building is state of the art. They have a large trading floor, gym (with sauna), food courts, and roof top dining.

    Anyone would be lucky to work there because the building is great, but RBS is a dying company and shrinking its US presence...just read what the CEO is saying. Anyways upwards and onwards.

    I didn't like some of the WASPY characters and I knew I wouldn't get it because of a lack of diversity in the company.

    Application

    The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Royal Bank of Scotland (Stamford, CT) in March 2012.

    Interview

    I was selected for an on campus interview.half hour 2-1 with recent full time employees. Got a call back to come for the "Super Friday" in Stamford. Met with many other students who were interviewing for all summer positions. Had two separate half hour interviews again 2-1 with managers in the department. I am waiting to send thank you emails this monday and will wait to hear back. I thought it was a little odd they are the by far the quickest for having both interviews done before other companies even offer the first interview times. Stamford is nice, and RBS is known for their comfortable working environment.
