Getting an Interview
- Application Details
I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Bank of the Philippine Islands in June 2014.Interview Details
Applied online and got a text within a couple of days. Took the exam along with around 25 people who were applying to various positions, it seems everyone has to take exam which takes just over an hour to complete. After waiting a couple of hours, I was interviewed by the member of HR who invited me to take the exam. I was told immediately after the 15 minute interview that I would be recommended for a final interview.
I was invited back to the final interview by the end of the week. This interview was with a member of the division I was applying to (Risk Management). What followed was a long 2 hour meeting but it was very positive and the interviewer was extremely accomodating and answered all my questions about the position. I was offered the chance to sign the same day.Interview Questions
