    Gone in through headhunter. Met the hiring manager and 4 peers. It was quite quick and efficient and they are generally very friendly. Unfortunately, HR is slow and tend to botch things up. They screwed up my bonus numbers and had to take a long time to rectify.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Standard Chartered Bank in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Video interview, Corporate & Institutional Clients and Corporate Finance group. The video interview experience was particularly bad - I have rarely not passed competency based interviews, but talking to a pixelated image of yourself with a countdown timer next to it is not something I expected. No human interaction given, gives a feeling of disrespect to candidates.
