The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Royal London (Edinburgh, Scotland) in May 2009.
The whole interview process took over a months time . The first round was core technical and was taken by an external consutant who are Subject Matter Experts in this field. The interviewer had good questions and was based on basic concepts rather than knowledge of tools. Second round was the Behavioral Competency round and after attending so many interviews and getting stuck in this round I have failed to understand what the interviewers are looking for in these questions.
