    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at MINDEF Singapore (Singapore (Singapore)) in January 2016.

    I felt that the interview was pretty okay, i think it was more of a get to know you session. The panel looked intimidating but was respectful and listened carefully and asked relevant follow up questions. There were no weird 'if you could be one furniture in this room what would you be?'

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at MINDEF Singapore in March 2017.

    Interview

    I have only gone through 2 interview process but I heard there were more if successfully shortlisted.

    The first 'interview' was more of a personality and qualification test on paper and electronically respectively. 10 minutes were given to write a self introduction. Personality quiz consists of 240 mcq questions. Qualification test were very technical with reasonable time given to complete (except for the random network disconnections that prevent next question from loading).

    The second interview consist of another personality test (true/false), followed a panel interview.
