    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Royal Bank of Scotland.

    Interview

    After you successfully complete the verbal, numerical and inductive reasoning tests, you are invited to the telephone interview. It takes around 30-40 minutes and it includes questions on your motivation and competency based questions. The main difficulty is that the interviewer types your answers and you have to answer the question and then wait until he finishes typing, so you feel like you are talking to yourself and not to another person. If you succeed at this stage, you are invited to the assessment centre.

    Interview Questions

    • How did you help someone outside the university? How you felt about it?
      What challenges does the bank face, NOT related to the programme you are applying to?
      Why are you applying for this particular role and how does it match your careers aspirations?

    Interview

    Online Application then after few days go an e.mail to do the online tests (Verbal and numerical tests). Then proceeded to the Telephone Interview. Telephone interview is not doe directly by the RBS. Its is some other Agency, they may have very less knowledge about the Industry and the role your are applying for. Therefore make sure you speak very fluently with them.
    and few weeks after Assessment Centre.
    AC has 4 stages. One group work, Presentation, Face to Face interview and a small task such as to write a e.mail in a professional manner.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Royal Bank of Scotland (London, England (UK)) in March 2015.

    Interview

    The whole process took around 1 hour, first some basic competency questions. Then a writing test. The manager is really very nice. Even if I am not successful. She gave me some very useful feedback. RBS is definitely a company that is worth fighting for. One of the most important reasons is that you will have very nice and responsible colleagues to work with.
