    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Ocbc Bank.

    Interview

    It's not a difficult inteveiew as the turn over rates are high. What they do not share is the commission system but I have cross checked with some friends who are doing this job and realised that Te commission isn't that bad as it hits to at least 3k monthly if u hit the target. The only problem is hitting the target. I don think they would fire u for not hitting it as hitting a 100% target could be impossible. But maybe u need to hit 50% I guess. So the commission u make could be 1-2 k for a competant pfc. And take note they pay out every 3 months for commissions.

    Be sure to enphasize on your interpersonal skill to excel in this

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    They would hurry your decision very quickly. but you can choose a later starting date and sign the contract. Because the contract only takes effect if u start the training program and there's no penalty for declining the offer after signing it before u start the training

    I applied online – interviewed at Ocbc Bank.

    Interview

    went for the interview and i don't really like it when the interviewers don't introduce themselves. It is basic courtesy and they merely told me their ranks when i introduce my name. The first interviewer which i presume is the HR consultant also did not introduce themselves. I mean don't be so proud of your own rank when the hr person intro your rank it doesn't mean u must not introduce your name. i am sure you can't even sell me the pen you are holding if i challenged you.

    To HR, if the opporttunity is obviously not favourable just be honest.

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Ocbc Bank (Singapore (Singapore)) in November 2014.

    Interview

    There were multiple stages. First one was a video interview using an external video website. Followed up by first round of HR interviews presumably followed by departmental interviews. The HR interviewer was a recent graduate and associate. It was a shame that I did not get a further opportunity to interview with other people as I feel we did not manage to connect.
