    Human Resources Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Temasek.

    Interview

    The directors were friendly and approachable. They asked intelligent questions. The overall atmosphere was relaxing and comfortable. It was a two-to-one interview. More of a casual conversation to know you better.

    Associate Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Temasek (London, England (UK)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online, followed by tests and a recorded video interview. 'Assessment Centre Experience' was all day in London in January 2017. They interviewed the candidates for both Singapore and London in the same day, so there were about 25 of us - they had many more available positions for Singapore, maybe as few as 2 for London. Fairly poorly organised, lots of waiting time involved because of the number of candidates. They could have streamlined it by using multiple dates, though it was understandable given the HR team had flown from Singapore especially.

    Interview Questions

    • Assessment Centre Experience involves group case study, individual case study and two-on-one interview.   Answer Question

    Summer Analyst Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Temasek (Singapore (Singapore)) in October 2016.

    Interview

    First round of interviews were easy, but superday was difficult. Group case study, individual case study, interview and then 3 psychometric tests. Overall it felt very time-pressured and that might throw you off during the interview.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Temasek (Singapore (Singapore)).

    Interview

    Interviewed by an MD, head of department. Strategies type of questions just kept coming instead of what was described in the JD. Was expecting more methodology type of questions for performance tracking. An indecent and non-respectful was of interviewing style. They may not like me but i don't like them either.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Temasek (Singapore (Singapore)) in April 2016.

    Interview

    It was an internship program offered by the university, and I had to pass the prior resume screen before my resume was handed over to the company. I was notified almost a month later, and it was a one-on-one interview with the director of the department. It was mostly conversational, and I just had an informal 1 hour chit chat with him.

    One on one interview with associate director, when through resume details and some details about the job scope and what to expect. It was generally relax and nice. Took me around 15 minutes for the interview. There wasn't any technical interview, or stages, which was quite a surprise.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Temasek (Singapore (Singapore)) in February 2015.

    Interview

    As it was a mid-semester internship, I directly interviewed with the department heads, a director and an assistant director. I guess there was only 1 round of interview. The questions were very focused on investments, markets, and was asked for a stock pitch.
