    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    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.

    I was referred by my friend and I simply went through a phone interview. The process took about 1-2 weeks. Questions asked were general ones such as why are you interested in this position. Also got technical questions such like what is a call option etc. It was not that difficult. Just be honest.

    Interview Details

    Just one interview for the retail banking intern. Interview was directly with the manager/superviser. The specific department was only revealed at the interview.

    Interviewer did not ask any technical questions. More concerned about the previous experiences stated on the CV.

    Entire session was more of the interviewer sharing the job scope of the department.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at Ocbc Bank in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Interview process is intense, first ask you basic question, then general knowledge and test your response to the question. They will be two interviewers, they're many applicants compete with you. So you need to stand out from the crowd and of course to get to know someone who works inside and understand their job scope will help out slightly. Most importantly is to work out your general knowledge and reaction.

    Interview Questions
    • Since you are an economic student, what do you think the recent global economy.   Answer Question
    • What's the biggest challenge for this role?   Answer Question
    • If you face rejection, what would you do? Sales and customer service, which one is the most important and why?   Answer Question
    • Why are you interested In selling banking products?   Answer Question
    • Why OCBC instead of other bank/ financial institution? It doesn't mean you're finance student, you've to work in a bank. Why as a finance student, you choose to work in a bank instead?   Answer Question
