    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Standard Chartered Bank (Seoul (South Korea)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    It took about 10 days and I applied for Standard Chartered International Graduate Program in Seoul, Korea. I had three tests - strengths assessment, abstract reasoning test, and numerical reasoning test. You have to take each test within 5 days. For strengths assessment, you get a result showing your strengths and weakness. For other tests, you get an e-mail with you results immediately after the test - whethere you have done a good job compared to other applicants. The tests are not very hard. If you pass the tests, you take the video interview.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Standard Chartered Bank (Karāchi (Pakistan)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    The interview was very subtle, with a major focus on testing my behavior. I had to arrive at SCB's headquarters at about noon, and after only a short waiting period the interview commenced. Only the head of HR was present for this interview.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Standard Chartered Bank (London, England (UK)) in December 2016.

    Interview

    I had three separate interviews. Regarding content I thought the interviews went well - certainly they would not have invited me back for the 2nd and 3rd interviews had they not. However, two issues arose. Firstly, my being an immigrant was oddly highlighted during one of the interviews. This was uncomfortable, as it was not relevant in any way to the job I was interviewing for - e.g. I was not being asked to confirm my right to work in the UK. Secondly, I was told that once all candidates had been seen, they would revert to me. I never heard anything more. I did try and follow up, but to no avail. After three interviews without the professional courtesy of being advised of their decision, I can only assume that my immigrant status was a contributing factor - they have certainly given me a very wide berth since. Overall, I would say this experience was negative.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Standard Chartered Bank in December 2016.

    Interview

    It is a video interview and you will get 10 questions in total with minutes before to prepare for each question. Better to prepare before interview and also it is hard to be yourself in the face of a camera. Try to use the practice to be familiar to that.

    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.
