    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Ocbc Bank (Singapore (Singapore)) in June 2015.

    Interview

    You will be interviewed by two people, one from HR and the other a branch manager. It's rather normal, you will be asked the usual questions, although right from the outset they will inform you on their KPI, and that they take it very seriously when people fail to achieve it.

    Personal Financial Consultant Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Ocbc Bank (Singapore (Singapore)) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Dropped my resume off at NUS career fair slightly more than a month ago and they called me down for an interview a fortnight back. 30-min long process with 2 interviewers (one from HR, one was called the hiring manager). They were pleasant and conversational, found that I could afford to inject some humour to lighten up the interview process. Was prompted to start with a short introduction about myself. I guess for this role they wanted to see how well you can make a connection with strangers (them) so if you're a sociable creature to start off with that's great. I also appreciated that they were quite upfront/frank about the job scope (did not embellish it) so they wanted to know, despite that knowledge, how genuine and eager you still are for the job. They will also pick on your responses to further the interview so don't make any claims that you can't back up. Also I think they were quite pleased that I had some degree of fluency in a few other languages (so if you do - play it up!). My advice is to read up on the job scope (basically just selling financial products) and be charming haha.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Ocbc Bank (Singapore (Singapore)) in May 2015.

    Interview

    the interview was swift and took less than 30 mins. they ask the surface questions: like introduction of yourself, and ask about the understandings of the job scope before explaining why is it all about. there's a lot more of the questions. but overall the interview is fine and both the team leaders and hr staff are friendly. I didn't get the offer, and was referred to be a Business Development Manager instead, and will be going for second round of interview with different panel of interviewer.
