    Accounts Payable Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Singapore (Singapore)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Nanyang Technological University (Singapore (Singapore)) in December 2016.

    Interview

    There were 2 interviewers. Interview questions were answerable and quite standard. However, the interviewer do not respect you as an interviewee. One was busy using her laptop and another put you down and said nasty words which indirectly insulted you. It was the most unpleasant interview I had ever went for.

    Assistant Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Nanyang Technological University (Singapore (Singapore)) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I applied via taleo (online portal) and received an interview invite a week after. I was informed thru e-mail that the interview process would entail a 1 hour written test, followed by an hour long interview with the managers and director.
    The written test is timed. It was done on a laptop, presumably to access excel competency. Also, there were several essay questions to complete (which were relevant to the job scope). After that, it was meeting with the panel of interviewers. Interviewers were quite friendly, and the questions asked are quite typical. It felt more like a conversation than a question-answer session, while preserving a professional and formal setting. Just do your part, be prepared, and besides putting your best foot forward and hoping for the best, it's wise to use it as an opportunity to gauge how compatible your prospective employers with your work style and expectations as well.
    Overall, a good experience for me, as I find that no interview experience is ever gone to waste. It has been 2 weeks post-interview, and I have not heard from them, so I am assuming that there is currently no offer, although the impression I was left with was that I would have been selected. A final point to note is that the type of interview structure would vary, depending on which school/office you are interviewing with.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions may largely vary depending on how you answer, but most were the typical ones, such as
      -Tell me more about yourself
      - Hobbies, what you do in free time
      - How would your friends describe you
      - How do you manage your time
      - What do you do when you face difficulties at work?
      - How much do you understand about what this job entails?
      - How do you find NTU? (cos I'm an alumni)

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Nanyang Technological University (Singapore (Singapore)).

    Interview

    I have attended an interview at Admission and financial aid office(Student service centre). There were 4 interviewers including Director, manager and assistant manager. I regret going for this interview as I think they did not respect the candidates. There were laughing and joking among themselves and asking irrelevant qns. I felt insulted and annoyed and I hope they will reflect on their behaviour.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Nanyang Technological University (Singapore (Singapore)) in April 2011.

    Interview

    Single round of 1:3 Panel Interview. They will have your application form which includes your educational transcript and all other relevant data. They may refer to it and ask you questions from your past school records e.g. CCA, CIP, GCE 'A' Level grades. They may ask about why you chose the course to study in NTU. They may ask personal questions like your hobbies, career aspirations. It was rather free-flowing so you may be able to steer the conversation to your advantage if you mention an interesting story and they will want to find out more.
