Interview Details – I applied online through their website. They sent me a numerical, logical test followed by a work strength questionnaire .

Interview Question – These are the main STAR questions
If at work you have ever had to deliver a project or an assignment where accuracy was necessary and how you managed to organise the task
If you have ever worked in a team where a member wasn't forthcoming and how you tried to put things in order
If you have ever experienced an unexpected obstacle and how you overcame it particularly in a work environment

Easy Interview

Intern Interview

Anonymous Employee
Makati City (Philippines)

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Standard Chartered Bank in March 2014.

Interview Details – Applied at my university's career fair. They called after two months, via phone, scheduling an interview. I came to their office and waited for around 2 hours before finally getting interviewed. There were only 4 applicants, me included, that day. The interviewer was not actually from the Human Resources department but would be my trainer if ever I was accepted. He asked about my experience in systems analysis and project management because those would be what I would be doing if I got accepted.

Interview Question – What are your strengths?   Answer Question

Standard Chartered Group & Technology Operation MT Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied online and the process took 6 months - interviewed at Standard Chartered Bank.

Interview Details – I applied online through their website on sept 2013 and finished the online assessments. I was hired shortly after by another company so I was not able to complete all the assessments. On late February 2014, I received a call from them asking if I would want to continue pursuing the position and they sent me the last assessment (work habits) to finish. Once I had finished this, I simply waited for a week and got a call to schedule my phone interview.

The phone interview lasted around 45 minutes and involved questions regarding my previous work experience such as: what is the most difficult situation that you've come across? Name one example of a time when you had a disagreement with a coworker who was not and is not currently your friend.

After that I waited another week and got an invite for the final stage of the recruitment process. I'm currently waiting for the final day of recruitment.

Interview Question – Name one instance where you had to work with someone you did not necessarily get alone with. How did you handle the situation?   Answer Question
