Default MINDEF DXO (All FAQ on it)

For people who are currently in or have been employed in MINDEF DXO, care to share your experiences in it? Salary scale and your grade? And perhaps for those who entered before as fresh grad, your class of honours as well?

Also would be great if you can share your interview experiences as well as what goes in it too.

Pay compared to private sector is a joke, benefits so so but slack enough.

all kinds
got logic puzzles, maths questions, that sort of thing.
no linguistic, at least not for those general positions.
But the 3 hour length is killer.

Had a short conversation with the HR. DX9 is the entry-level grade for people on the graduate scheme. No wage adjustment for DX scheme, revision was last done in Oct last year. Probation of 6mths for fresh entries.
