    I worked at Virgin Money part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Virgin Money manages to combine all the excitement of being part of the very cool Virgin empire with the career development opportunities of a substantial bank. Ethically the bank is first rate with enormous genuine attention paid to treating customers fairly and well and attending to the spirit not just the letter of regulation.

    Cons

    Like all well controlled financial services organisations there is not always as much empowerment of staff as there might be ...

    Advice to Management

    Trust people more .... and welcome challenge ...

    Business Performance Analyst Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Virgin Money (Newcastle upon Tyne, England) in February 2012.

    Interview

    Written test, followed by 3 technical interviews by people from the business (MD to VP level) and finally a HR interview. 1st round, intelligence test, same as other IQ test, pass This set of problems is much more difficult than SHL (some name like that). It includes arrows combination, symbols, etc 2nd round, numerical test, failed Different from other banks, just 12 McQ quiz, 75sec each, quite stressed comparing to other banks online test. Actually, it might not be that difficult, but you need to be prepared and using a good calculator. Each quiz with at least 6 choices, some even with more than 10 choices They will have assessment center if u pass it. Some of my friend get there, but unfortunately I failed.

    Interview Questions

    • Let’s play a game of Russian roulette. You are tied to your chair and can’t get up. Here’s a gun. Here’s the cylinder of the gun, six chambers, all empty. Now watch me as I put two bullets in the gun, adjacent to each other. I close the cylinder and spin it. I put a gun to your head and pull the trigger. Click. Lucky you! Now I’m going to pull the trigger one more time. Which would you prefer, that I spin the cylinder first, or that I just pull the trigger?   1 Answer
