    Interview

    The easier path depends on whether you have a relationship with any existing person in the department, because it works through relationship referrals (hiring). Different clusters of people knew one another.

    Interview Questions

    • Felt that they tested things that can be self-learned. Should focus on hiring the people with the right attitudes.   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Singapore Power in February 2017.

    Interview

    Its a 3 months internship position where I was called up for a short interview. Did not manage to get into the proper interview as the competitiveness is rather high. Since 3 months of internship is rather short, not much vacancy is needed. Without a decent GPA result, chances of getting the position is rather low.

    Interview Questions

    • Asking some background stuff about me and my GPA result.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Singapore Power in September 2012.

    Interview

    Upon receiving my resume deposit e-mail, if you have the potential, the HR will call you first to have a conversation and concluding it by inquiring on your expected salary. From there, they will "call you in a week's time" to confirm your interview date and time.

    When it is all confirmed, you will need to proceed to their HQ building at Pasir Panjang Road and wait for the interview. Of course, there are relevant documents needed for the interview.

    The interviewing panel consisted of 4 persons in total (1 HR, 3 Head of Sections (your future supervisors)).

    Interview Questions

    • 1. They kept asking why I did not continue with my previous job after my contract ended.
      2. They kept asking if I am willing to take a slight pay cut.
      3. Told me to be independent.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Because I was desperate for a stable job, I did not negotiate much. I only wanted these few things:

    1. Permanent position (6 months probation only, no fuss)
    2. Stable pay (was quite small but there are good bonuses + yearly increment)
    3. Medical benefits

    I was pleasantly surprised that they have part-time studies sponsorship, which I applied after 1 year in service.
