    International Graduate Program - Financial Markets Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Standard Chartered Bank in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    I heard about the program through on campus recruiting, where SC came to make a presentation about the various divisions in their graduate program. I was directed to apply through the website.

    The first step of the application was to complete the Global Abstract Aptitude Test within 3 days of receiving the invitation. The test was a standard logic assessment test. The second test I was invited for was the Numerical Analysis Aptitude Test, which was a standard math competency based test which some finance concepts. The final test was the Wave Focus Styles online questionnaire which was more of an assessment of your working style and personality.

    I was called in for a phone interview within a week of finalizing my application. The phone interview lasted over an hour and was centered mostly around 3 of my prior experiences. The interviewer asked 3 "tell me about a time" questions, which she later asked me to elaborate on. The questions really probed into each of my answers in order to extract all the details for the interviewer. The interview was not technical at all. I heard back from them the next day.

    Interview Questions
    • None of the questions were too unexpected. However interviewer went into extreme depth with each question regarding a particular experience or situation.

       Tell me about a time when you worked in a team and had to resolve differences in opinions. The experience I mentioned was over a year ago and I did not remember it quite as detailed as I would like. And so it was difficult to answer all the interviewer's followup questions precisely.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Standard Chartered Bank in August 2010.

    Interview Details

    Usually a quick process, possibly 2-4 interviews. Questions are both behavioral and technical. Moderate difficulty. Once you are accepted the process is pretty quick, HR contacts you right away, makes an offer and tries to close the deal.

    Compliance Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Standard Chartered Bank in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a recruiting firm by telephone. I interviewed with the hiring manager in the compliance group who seemed to think my background and skills fit her needs. I returned a couple weeks later to meet with three other members of compliance. I was asked point blank by the group head what my current base and bonus was, which I thought was a bit disconcerting. Ultimately, their budget for the position was too low for my requirements, which was communicated to me via the recruiting firm.

    International Graduate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Hong Kong (Hong Kong)
    Anonymous Employee in Hong Kong (Hong Kong)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Standard Chartered Bank in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    I applied online, the personality test came immediately after submission, I passed it and proceeded to the logical and numerical tests, after these 2 tests, I received an online interview. It was an automated one of 9 questions.
    Make sure you pass 3 tests before you can get to the interview stage. One of my friends failed from the very first test which was the personality test, another one failed after 2 logical and numerical tests. I would say the tests were much easier compared to JPMorgan or Bank of America or Deutsche Bank.
    Interview questions:
    When was the last time you had to adjust your working style to fit that of your leader/manager?
    Describe a time when you had to deal with conflict.
