Used this site extensively whist applying and just recently received an offer from RBS for B&C so if anyone has any questions regarding the process, give me a shout.
First Round was tests - had the tricky RBS numerical tests, thought I failed it but obviously not!
Telephone Interview - straight forward, exactly as the instructions said they would be like. Basic competency questions regarding team-work, managing work loads and a couple of other very standard ones. Also basic interview questions like Why RBS, Why B&C, etc. and then the longer bits which I can’t remember much about.
AC - Had a competency based interview with the same basic interview qs like Why RBS, Where do you see yourself in 5 years? Where else have you applied? Then 2 proper competency qs, one on team work and one on balancing priorities. Both examples had to be outside of studies which made them tricky but otherwise ok. Group exercise was allocating a fixed sum of money to improve performance of about 6 call centres. Everyone was allocated a specific improvement idea which required a certain amount of money - some more expensive than others and common data about performance indicators regarding the call centres. Standard group exercise etiquete and thoughtful insight into data should get you through this. Then individual presentation. We had 75 minutes to analyse a pack of data about a client and had to analyse the risks to RBS, issues facing the business and come up with some qs to ask the CEO of the fictional company. This was very time pressured and whilst they said no financial knowledge was required, knowing about balance sheets, accounting ratios and how debt/equity affect structure would be very helpful. Also it was a manufacturing company so depreciation is another big one as they had 6 factories or something.
All in all challenging process but doable with prep. Great company to work for, everyone was very friendly and helpful and the package was quite good - about 35k all in.
Good luck and hope this helps!
