    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at SGV & Co. (Makati City (Philippines)) in October 2014.

    Interview

    On the day after the board results were released, my boyfriend was texted by the HR. The next day he was already employed. I immediately tried my luck the next week. There are two steps in the interview: one with the HR and one with the managers. No interviews with HR were conducted for graduates with honors. So I passed the first stage. We were just asked what were the 3 groups that we want to be in. And from there, we would be talking to the managers.
