    Internship Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at DBS Bank in May 2014.

    Interview

    Applied online and received an email from HR. After speaking to a representative about my interests and aspirations at DBS, I received an email notifying me of online testing. The test consisted of Verbal and Numerical reasoning, each part taking an estimated 45 minutes. Two weeks later, HR confirmed that my scores had been submitted and that they would get back to me shortly with a confirmation. I then interviewed with a manager (who would be my boss) and received an official offer shortly after. The interview was a very natural conversation.

    Vice President Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at DBS Bank (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Tedious. Unprofessional. Disrespectful. Did not know what they want.

    Long drawn out process entailing meeting two sets of team members separately, a writing test, a chemistry check meeting, and in a move which suggested a near-done deal, a meeting with HR to discuss the start date.

    HR person was shockingly unprofessional, sending me WhatsApp messages after the meeting to bargain about asking pay, and even saying 'this is not an offer.' One would expect much better from DBS.

    As if an afterthought, a 'final' meeting with the department Head was set up. I was unceremoniously made to wait STANDING at the lift lobby (not even the guest reception) for 20 minutes as the assistant took her own sweet time. I contemplated walking out.

    Meeting of the Head was baffling - did not remember content of my resume, read it on the spot, asked more of the same questions already answered numerous times before, making me question 1) if the decision maker shouldn't have been involved much earlier on in the process for a relatively senior position, and 2) if there was any internal communication at all? In the end, they decided they were not ready to make a hire for a role which had been rewritten several times and is apparently experimental, so it's a blessing in disguise as they clearly don't know what they want.
