    Assistant Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Nanyang Technological University.

    Interview

    Ask to write an email on paper based on the 2 problems they gave, just to see how you will respond on email. Just read up on their website, all information are there, even quotation prices for merchandise they bought

    Interview for 1 hour, interviewers were friendly but be specific on your salary, else they will mark you as dishonest for hiding information from them and you will just be wasting your time and effort with them.

    Team culture seems good but a dictatorial leadership, no negotiation, no freedom, just do as you are told. If you are looking for just a job, this is perfect. If you are looking for a career growth with the power to control your fate, go else where.

    Office infrastructure is old fashioned, dust on chair and lighting is slightly dark.

    Base salary is low if your grades are not good. High leave payout of 21 days.

    Interview

    The hiring process was easy, through email. However the interview was rather tough with a panel of 5 interviewers. It was a thorough interview with questions more on relevant work experiences instead of personal questions.

    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

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Singapore (Singapore)
    No Offer
    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)   Answer Question
