    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Royal Bank of Scotland (Stamford, CT) in June 2011.

    Interview

    Long process, which they make you visit the office several different rounds. Must meet with over 5 people. Some with no obvious interviewing training. At no point did they ask any technical questions or verify that you actually do what you had written on your resume. This was made clear, as they hired people with little to no Excel skills.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Royal Bank of Scotland (Jersey City, NJ) in March 2011.

    Interview

    Casual work-specific interview questions. The interviewer attempted to understand how I would fit in the organizational structure much more than required, I thought. I understood after joining why that was the case - the unit I joined was an entity they acquired from ABN AMRO and at that time, had a doubtful presence in US

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Royal Bank of Scotland (Houston, TX) in October 2010.

    I did not have any contact with the company previously. I simply dropped my resume online and was asked to interview while they were on campus at my university. I was interviewed by two men: one VP and one analyst. The interview was almost entirely technical and one of them seemed to enjoy watching me suffer through the interview. I did okay at best.
