    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Royal Bank of Scotland (Gurgaon, Haryana (India)) in March 2016.

    Interview

    RBS have fairly lengthy interview process. It took whole day

    Round 1 Written(Core JAVA MCQ and 3 programs to write).

    Round 2 Technical Interview (Screening for basic java knowledge).

    Round 3 Written (Focussed on Designing).

    Round 4 Technical Interview (Lot of discussion. Questions span from your design and improvements. Threads, Concurrency it could be anything).

    Round 5 Manager Round( I was knocked out here. The manager didn't seemed to be of sound mind. Well when you go into organisations such as RBS you would expect someone with very polished inter personal skills and specially good with words and english.I must say he was very very rude no hello no thanks nothing and over top of it. He didn't uttered a single word in english. It seemed I was talking to a street vendor. Also I felt he had already decided whom to pick and my interview was just a formality. Despite, answering all the answers correctly I was shown out the door. ).
