    Female Leaders Insight Program Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Telephone, TX
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Royal Bank of Scotland (Telephone, TX) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Firstly I had to submit my CV alongside a few questions about why I wanted to work at RBS and my personal details/qualifications. Then I had to take situational judgement, numerical and logical tests, none of which were overly difficult, followed by a telephone interview, which had a "skills based" approach. The final stage of the application involves being shortlisted before being selected, however I did not make it this far, as the interviewer judged that I was not motivated enough to gain a place on this particular program.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Royal Bank of Scotland in November 2015.

    Interview

    I interviewed for the Conduct & Regulatory Affairs position, London office. The process took roughly a month. After applying online, did a situational judgement test, one logical test, one numerical test. Five days later, received an invitation for a phone call. RBS did strength-based interview, not competency-based. So it may be quite tricky for American students. Overall the process was good, but question types really toughened the work. The interviewer sounded uninterested in my answers throughout the interview, which was bad. There was barely any interactions between she and I. She just said "good, next question" after every answer. Kinda boring.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Royal Bank of Scotland (Telephone, TX) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Telephone interview (strength based). They arranged a time to call about a week in advance, saying the interview would last around 30 minutes. Interviewer was not allowed to rephrase questions, and stuck to a predetermined script. Interview ended up taking only 20 minutes, and no advice was given as to the length of answers required.

    Interview

    One on campus interview, one phone interview due to snow storm. Honestly amongst most banks probably the most casual and comfortable interview environment. Most of the emphasis is on why banking, why RBS, and why you are a good candidate.

    Interview

    Met hiring leader and coworkers. Found moral was down as they had and we're having a lot of layoffs. Offer of employment was held up until some news from HQ was in press and that announced more layoffs and possibly leaving Stamford CT. Add to that the salary and bonus was that of a manager's pay elsewhere and I declined the offer.
