Royal Bank of Scotland Interview Process

I applied at Royal Bank of Scotland for the post of Software Engineer through a staffing agency. The process took one day and I was interviewed at Royal Bank of Scotland. There were a total of six rounds in the hiring process at Royal Bank of Scotland.

Round 1 - - Online Written Test
The first step in the process was an online test which contained technical questions. The interview was scheduled by the consultancy. The test was not difficult and I was able to complete it without any problem.

Round 2 - First Technical Round
After I cleared the online test, I was called on site for the technical round. In this round, I was majorly asked questions concentrating on Core Java, Struts, SQL, Servlets and Jsp's. The questions were moderately difficult and thus you must have a good knowledge of concepts.
Q1. What is ActionServlet?
Q2. What is sub-query? Explain its properties.

Round 3 - Second Technical Round
In this interview, there were two interviewers. But they took interviews one by one and thus it was nothing exceptional except the fact that each of the interview was concentrated on a particular area. The first interviewer asked questions based on SQL while the second one asked questions about Java. The questions were again average in difficulty.
Q1. Explain the different type of Joins.

Round 4 - First Managerial Round
After clearing both the technical interviews, I was called for the manager round. In this round, the questions were focused on the projects that I did. Then there were questions regarding those projects like what sort of problems I faced while doing them and which one is my favorite and all. It lasted for about an hour and was a good one.

Round 5 - Second Managerial Round
This round was no more different than the previous round except that it lasted for just half an hour. I was again asked about the projects and there were many cross questions. Stress was laid on the problems that I had faced while completing the projects. The round was quite knowledge-full for me.

Round 6 - HR Round
Nothing much was asked in the HR round. It was very basic and all sort of the expected questions were asked. After that, the package was offered and negotiations were done.

How to crack Royal Bank of Scotland Interview

My interview experience at Royal Bank of Scotland was pretty good. The people there are quite professional and resourceful. Even if you are not selected, you will gain a good experience. Well to give a few pointers for cracking the Royal Bank of Scotland Interview, I would say that you must study Core Java and SQL thoroughly. For the position, they require that two areas of the candidates to be strong particularly. You will be asked many questions based on that.

There is nothing more to tell. If you can master your Java and SQL, you have better chances at cracking the interview than other people. The questions are not very difficult but they will be a step ahead from the basic level and so you must prepare well.

Rest, my best wishes are with all the candidates.

Thanks Anmol for sharing the details of your interview.

Difficult Brain Twister

A strange tradition is followed in an orthodox and undeveloped village. The chief of the village collects taxes from all the males of the village yearly. But it is the method of taking taxes that is interesting.

The taxes paid in the form of grains and every male should pay equal pounds corresponding to his age. In simpler terms, a man aged 10 years will have to pay 10 pounds of grains and a 20 years old will be paying 20 pounds of grain.

The chief stands on a riser containing 7 different weights next to a large 2 pan scale. As per the interesting custom, the chief can only weigh using three of the seven weights.

In such a scenario, can you calculate what must be the weights of the seven weights each and who is the oldest man the chief can measure using those weights?
