    I applied through other source. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at State Bank of India (Jamshedpur (India)).

    Interview

    I was hired by State Bank of India, way back in 1983. I clearly remember those were summer days of month June when I got a letter from the bank to appear before an interview board at red cross building, Gandhi Maidan, Patna. I was very happy and on scheduled date of interview I faced the interview with confidence and came out in flying colours.

    Interview Questions

    • I don't remember that I was asked any difficult question. I was asked question mostly related to the job I was already doing at that time. Answering them was quite a fun & no hassles or tension were there.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Only thing I could negotiate was my place of posting. But, I could not do that too, because I had to grab a good job for my life. Somehow, I was given very satisfactory posting at capital of Jharkhand, i.e. Ranchi.
