Summer Analyst Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Stamford, CT
No Offer
Neutral Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Royal Bank of Scotland (Stamford, CT) in June 2010.

Interview

The phone interview was basic resume dissecting. Then the candidates are invited to the office where there is a rotation with two employees and a tour of office. Everyone was nice some technical questions and personal questions. The company has great facilities and good people. I heard from another candidate that they picked him up from airport and paid for his hotel.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Royal Bank of Scotland in February 2011.

    Interview

    Very typical questions: Why finance? Can you discuss something in the recent financial news that interests you? aWhy RBS? Are you okay with working in Stamford (not NY)? They were really nice throughout the process. And 2nd Round Interviews were on campus the day after 1st Rounds so the process was relatively stress free compared to Super Days.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Royal Bank of Scotland in March 2010.

    Interview

    Applied online with an employee reference, had a great experience communicating with the campus hiring team via email. The phone interview with a member of the capital markets team was pleasant and entirely fit focused. Super day final round was two back to back 1:1 interviews with members of the team I applied for, both were fit and technical balanced, with focus on macro knowledge of capital markets and financials.

    Starting with a numerical test, then you get an hour to create a Powerpoint presentation, then the Group discussion is on the same topic. Then you have an interview based on the Group discussion, followed by a standad fit interview based on your CV.

    Interview

    It was quite a let-down. The HR at first appeared quite pushy and the whole process seem a bit of a rush. Two or maybe three HRs were sitting in the same room which made it sound like being called by someone from a lousy shopping mall.
