    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at United Overseas Bank in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    1) Called up for a face-to-face interview
    2) In the face-to-face interview, there were 2 interviews, one of them is the hiring manager and the other interviewer not sure. They start with asking for an introduction of yourself, followed by linking some of the contents said in the introduction.
    Other questions include: What do you know about the job position? Also has some questions on your previous job experiences. In general, the questions weren't tough just that I am quite uncertain of what they are looking for in a suitable candidate. Perhaps, they are looking for a keen and experienced person in the branch operations field.
    3) Was emailed on the results of the interview after 1 week.
