    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Defence Science & Technology Agency (Singapore (Singapore)).

    Interview

    2 rounds of interviews. First round was at a hotel in town, where a panel of middle management staff asked friendly questions like why do you wish to join..

    Then I was asked to do a psychometric test.

    2nd round of interview was at the HQ where the Deputy CEOs interviewed me. They were affable and approachable. It felt more like a friendly tea session than an interview.
