    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Standard Chartered Bank.

    Interview

    Had three interviews, first over skype. This was a general 'fit' interview with HR manager. Second was a functional interview, this could get a little technical. Last interview was with senior management, any question was fair game here. Best way to prepare for the interview is to make sure you know your motivations to apply to banking and to SCB. Of course do read all the recent news articles about the bank. You can get asked about your views on what the bank should be doing in the little of stricter regulations or collapsing commodity markets.

    Interview

    Passed VI interview, and was invited to the on site interview. The HR is really nice and welcoming. The questions are most common open questions. At the end of interview, HR told me that the feedback of the interview might be send out very late due to the holiday period. I still have not heard from them yet since mid December.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Standard Chartered Bank.

    Interview

    Online application- Strengths assessment - logical reasoning - numerical reasoning - video interview - HR interview

    Tests are straightforward. Instant feedback on your progress until video interview stage. An example of video interview question: "It is the first day at work. Who would you seek for advice and how"

    For the HR interview, I guess it was a very realistic one. I expected motivational, behavioral, CV based questions but the first thing they said was "other candidates have numerous banking experience but you only have 1". Typical questions such as "tell me a time" ones or "why us/division" was never asked.
    They Don't give you much room to explain your other experiences or anything else rather than things that were directly related to banking or finance.

    I'm sure it depends on the interviewer/position/country but from my experience, I don't think you can have a decent conversational interview unless you have a finance related major with 2 or more previous internship at a bank.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Standard Chartered Bank.

    Interview

    There were some aptitude tests. After that, I was invited to a HireVue video interview. It is all an automatic process so I guess they just send you the interview if you scored higher than a threshold in the tests.

    Two managers came into the room. No technical questions. Mainly focused on attitudes and how I am going to contribute to the bank. It was not too difficult as they focused on my resume and what I have done in my past life. Just behavior questions.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Standard Chartered Bank (London, England (UK)) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Had to pass 1 Situational test and 2 online tests.
    Afterwards, I was told to do a video interview within 5 days.
    There was 11 questions in the video interview and each question basically is very similar to the common competency tests available online.
    I have got a call about a week later that I got rejected due to a lack in internships in banking. But, I was offered an internship instead which I rejected.
