    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Royal Bank of Scotland in October 2009.

    Interview

    The interviewer was cold and asked few questions. Not very interested in the process. Did grill me on parts of my resume. Be prepared to talk about modeling and other financial pieces. Other than that I just ran through my resume. I am not sure what she was looking for exactly. Did not give me much time to ask her questions.

    Sales and Trading Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Royal Bank of Scotland (Greenwich, CT) in October 2009.

    Interview

    The interview was with 3 members of the senior management team in the Sales and Trading field at RBS. The interview was difficult because they had three people asking questions and it was hard to focus on one person. The questions were largely background information, but some of the questions were why sales and trading and why this industry. My answer were not sufficient in many cases and they kept pushing me for a better answer. I worked at a small financial firm and they asked what products I was most interested in and I struggled to answer not because I didn't know, but just because I never thought about what "products" the company offered. Looking back, I can think of a million things, but at the time, they did not seem to care because I had worked for an insignificant financial firm. I needed to give them actual and pertinent answers and while they said this was more of an "informal" interview, it sure did not feel like it. They played the "laid back" card, but this was not the overall feeling of the interview.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Royal Bank of Scotland (London, England (UK)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Whilst the interview wasn't extremely hard, it was quite difficult for me to figure what sort of answers they're expecting / what profile they're looking for. It was a competency based interview, and the interviewer was very nice and friendly, clearly explaining the instructions before proceeding to the interview itself. He managed to make me feel a lot more relaxed than during other phone interviews.
