    I worked at Royal Bank of Scotland full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    High level of independence and not micro-managed. I always felt that I had the attention of my senior leaders in an effort to be heard and effect change.

    Cons

    An unusually high level of uncertainty and a difficult operating environment where "doing more with less (resources)" was the daily battle rhythm.

    Female Leaders Insight Program Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Telephone, TX

    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.
