OCBC Young Bankers (Consumer Financial Services) Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Ocbc Bank.

Interview Details – Call down to OCBC Chualia Street HR for interview. Went through first round of interview with HR with several standard questions from HR. Mostly scenario type of questions, on top of basic question regarding strength & weaknesses. The questions are tricky as they question your ability to handle scenarios that are crucial in banking. Have not heard from them further for second round.

Interview Question – There will be a time when we all forget something, a detail or two, can you name me a time when this happened to you and what did you do about it?   Answer Question

Mortgage Specialist Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Singapore (Singapore)

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Ocbc Bank in July 2013.

Interview Details – Was asked to arrive 10mins earlier to do a one page personality test. After which was directed by the recruiter into the interview room with another candidate. There was another department manager for the interview as well. so it was a 2 vs 2 scenerio. It was quite awkward. At the end of the day, the other interviewee got the job (initially she was rejected but she lamented to an employee in the company and so it does magic). This shows that no matter how much you prepare for interview, it is all about networking and connections.

Interview Question – Was asked on what qualities or abilities I have to be an MS.   Answer Question
