    Management Trainee Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Bank of the Philippine Islands in October 2017.

    Interview

    First is the initial interview. Then you will going to have 3 types of exam. First is MATH. They will give you 10 minutes to answer 25 questions. They will check the questionnaires right away so if you failed, be ready to go home. Then it goes the same to other exams.

    We are unlucky because our batch was scheduled at 1PM (because security guards and frontliner of HR told so, that 10AM is their cut-off for interviewees).

    Also, the HR seems to ask questions so fast and her face is not approachable. Feels like she wanted to finish right away because it's friday and she is ready to go home.

    Anyway, I'm not bitter because I did not pass the exam, I'll just going to find another company that will make me feel that I have the talent. Instead of BPI.

    My first impression was, they don't treat their employees as a talent, but as their workers. Its really bad because, I thought BPI will going to help us in making the best happen.

    Please HR, be good to new applicants because how we see you is how we see the environment that BPI has. Be good to people and appreciate that they alloted a time to apply in your company. KNIW HOW TO SAY THANK YOU.

    Interview

    Walk in applicant . Submitted my application last june 4 . After a month i got a call for initial interview .we were 11 applicants for interview . After BM informed me wait for their call for qualifying exam scheduled next week . A week after we were 5 applicants for exam and told us only top 2 will be entertained for final interview . And i was chosen to proceed to final interview the following week . During interview they informed me im qualified but only their HR set age for bank teller not more than 26 y/o. Instead they endorsed my application to their insurance which is the BPI-philam. I got sad ofcourse because at the first place my bday is written on my resume but still they entertained until i reached last step only to tell me im over age .
    I was a little upset because at the start when they reviewing my resume and interviewing me for 3 times, they should tell me right away that i am over age . Then end of story .

    The first phase of the hiring process is the exam. The exam is 3-part and for each part, people who don't pass will not go through the next part of the exam. Afterward, we were called for the initial HR interview. Most of the questions are regarding my CV and personal background. The next phase is a line/panel interview.
