  10.  

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Bank of East Asia.

    Interview

    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 Questions

    • 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
