    I applied for the position during the career fair in campus. Within a month, I received a call from the HR who asked about my internship experience, my interest and why I want to join the company. Then I was scheduled for an interview which was held 2 days later.

    For the interview, which lasted for 30 mimutes, I was interviewed by a HR personnel and an Assistant General Manager (Operations). Questions asked were general and the interviewers were looking for people who are passionate in joining the industry and are able to handle stress in the production department, esprcially when tight datelines have to be met. The AGM also shared about the challenges of the job and mentioned about the environment and working hours.

    Interview Details

    Went through 3 rounds of interviews. First round involved filling in a few forms and answering standard questions with HR personnel. Second round interview involved a senior director and the third round an executive director. Overall it was okay - a lot depends on your fit into the company culture and the value you can add to the company immediately.

    First met with the recruiters at a university career fair. Very friendly recruiters most of which were alums of the university that I attend. two round interviews, one HR officer, two engineer and one engineer is senior section manager, very straight foreward. But need to think about some questions about long career life in the company.

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Keppel Offshore & Marine in August 2007.

    Interview Details

    Application got processed very fast. Called up for interviews at shipyard. Questions asked regarding work attitude and career plans. Completed a written assignment based on an essay question. Total number of interviews is 3 rounds. Last round involved senior management where they bring you in for a chat. The people seem friendly enough but the work environment leaves some to be desired.
