Management Trainee Interview

Management Trainee

I applied online and interviewed at Bank of East Asia.

Interview Details – I filled out the online application form, then they called after a few weeks and asked for an interview. It was a group interview, and it consisted of three parts. The first part is introduction and second part debate, then third part written exam. It required the candidates to know all three languages: canton, mandarin and english. Nothing special about the first round, just prepare to speak three languages.

Interview Question – The written exam asked about behavioral questions, I remember one question asked if a client gives you a red pocket for CNY (HKD 5000), should you accept it knowing that this client will soon apply a loan from you? And what should you do under such circumstances?   Answer Question

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Bank of East Asia in July 2011.

Interview Details – There were 2 managers and 1 human resources manager interviewing 5 candidates. We took turns to introduce ourselves and the panel started throwing questions to us about various topics including banking, social and financial issues. The process took about 1 hour. Candidates were very strong and the panel was quite harsh.

Interview Question – What do you think are the qualities of a banker?   View Answer
