Relationship Manager Interview

Relationship Manager
Singapore (Singapore)

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Standard Chartered Bank in August 2012.

Interview Details – - Phone Interview
Talent Acquisition will contact you and do an initial interview with you over the phone, understand a bit about you your resume and arrange for an interview.

- Manager Interview (Group setting with 2 Managers and Interviewee)
Initial meet with two of your potential line managers, this will be the first face to face interview and where both managers will get to know you better and if it goes well HR will arrange to meet you again.

- District Head and HR Interview (Group Setting again 2 on 1)
District head will interview personally to understand you and this round is a bit more challenging depending on the approach of interview that the interviewers come with but this will be the final meet and will also be the interview where your future district manager will have their say on you.

- Offer signing with HR Representative.
Final meet to go through the contract, to discuss and deliberate commensuration, benefits, etc.

Interview Question – Questions were personality and skill set based and the interviewers often want to know your mettle and drive in conducting yourself, showing abilities in sales, wealth advisory and understanding if you are in line with the organisations drive to grow and with their work culture.

Reasons on why you want to leave your last position and why you like to join Standard Chartered often came up.

Questions answered often came with rebuttals and be prepared to answer accordingly.

Senior Business Analyst Interview

Senior Business Analyst
Singapore (Singapore)

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Standard Chartered Bank in April 2013.

Interview Details – I got a call from Kelly Services, Singapore regarding the opening. The Job description was very similar to my current profile and hence i got short listed for the position.
There were 2 person taking the interview. They were very cool and broke the ice right away. Didn't start with usual questions like describe yourself and what you did?
They asked me more about my current role and for most of the statements i made they asked me to provide an example or real life scenario.

Interview Question – Had worked for the FX Option little bit and the interviewer went into hair split details. I had to accept that i didnt have expected level of knowledge.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – It was a contract position and salary offered was below par. Hope to get a better offer next the :)
