    Investment Banking Summer Analyst Interview

    Interview Details

    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.

    Corporate Responsibilty Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Royal Bank of Scotland.

    Interview Details

    Job advertisement. Invited for curry and interview. They didn't want to take a risk on me as a Politics student even though I got good interview feedback. The process was done in an Indian restaurant and you were given a meal (which was good) but the open environment for conducting interview was intimidating, you knew other candidates were listening to you. Trying to do more on corporate responsibility but not enough. Good business prizes diversity of thought in the long run.

    Summer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Royal Bank of Scotland.

    Interview Details

    Group exercise involving a trading game and a dice. An individual presentation from a large set of given information. Finally, a set of two interviews one to one. The group exercise can be intense but it wasn't a relevant simulation of what trading really is like, trading isn't something done in a group and because of this it can result in a lot of confusion between the group members and you have to react instantly without having enough time to discuss hence not very effective.

    Graduate Risk Analyst Interview

    Interview Details

    Having completed the online application I was invited to sit 3 online tests: situational, numerical and logical reasoning tests. After I have passed the test I was invited for a telephone interview. Telephone interview took 45 mins and the next day they have told me that I passed the benchmark. However with RBS passing a telephone interview does not guarantee AC, so i still waiting to hear back from them about that.

    Interview Questions
    • Questions were as expected with first part of the interview focussing on my motivation to join RBS and that particular division. The second part involved two competency based questions: Tell me about a time you helped someone overcome their fear and reach their potential and tell me about the time when you showed your integrity. Both questions involved further subquestions.   Answer Question

    Telephone interview, lasted 45 mins. Couple of weeks later had AC day in head office, pretty easy. Included written exercise which required us to find/summarise info from a huge binder, group exercise/presentation while being assessed by 4 people, 1-1 briefing of group exercise outcomes, then competency interview, then technical interview. Notified next day regarding pass/fail. Very good experience and RBS seems like a brilliant place to work.
