    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Ocbc Bank.

    Interview Details

    It's not a difficult inteveiew as the turn over rates are high. What they do not share is the commission system but I have cross checked with some friends who are doing this job and realised that Te commission isn't that bad as it hits to at least 3k monthly if u hit the target. The only problem is hitting the target. I don think they would fire u for not hitting it as hitting a 100% target could be impossible. But maybe u need to hit 50% I guess. So the commission u make could be 1-2 k for a competant pfc. And take note they pay out every 3 months for commissions.

    Be sure to enphasize on your interpersonal skill to excel in this

    They would hurry your decision very quickly. but you can choose a later starting date and sign the contract. Because the contract only takes effect if u start the training program and there's no penalty for declining the offer after signing it before u start the training

    Since it was a direct hire position, there was only 1 round of interview which lasted approximately 1hr. Mostly were behavioral questions. There were 2 interviewers during the interviews, my hiring manager and the hr manager. Both were friendly and nice.

    I was referred by my friend and I simply went through a phone interview. The process took about 1-2 weeks. Questions asked were general ones such as why are you interested in this position. Also got technical questions such like what is a call option etc. It was not that difficult. Just be honest.

    Interview Details

    It was a group interview with 3 candidates and two interviewers. You will be asked to do a personality test before the interview. The lady was very pleasant but the other interviewer remained stern. Overall it was an okay experience. Remember to smile a lot even though the interviewer may be a little unfriendly. :)
