Anonymous Interview

Anonymous Employee
Singapore (Singapore)

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Standard Chartered Bank.

Interview Details – 5 interviews starting with HR screening, hiring manager, two stakeholders and the functional manager. The HR person was very dismissive and didn't create a 'warm' atmosphere' One of the stakeholders was positively negative about the role ie ;why would you want this role, its most likely to fail', hiring manager was very open and helpful in regards to prep for the next interviews, functional head was surprisingly pleasant and engaged for a very senior person.

Interview Question – Why would you want this role, its most likely to fail
When have you failed in a role and what changes did you make as a result?
Why should I hire you over anyone else?
Tell me about the most difficult people decision you've had to make? (where people is someone in your team).
  Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Not much interest from the company to negotiate it was a 'take it or leave it' offer
