    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.

    Average Interview

    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.

    Interview was a series of simple bond math and personality/fit questions with some market questions such as what's something you've read lately and your thoughts on it.

    very ad hoc. they are generally trying to sell the bank to potential employees to replace people who have left. they can't fill any positions with any decent people and pretty soon it looks like they will shut down the north american operation of the bank. no one should apply to work here unless you are really desperate for any work whatsoever.
