Will receive email first to tell you that you are shortlisted and to wait for their call this week.
By the way you will receive rejection email if you are rejected, my friend received it last friday.

i remember 2 years ago the interview process went like this:

phone call
- do you program?
- what's the difference between python and c
- what's the command line?
- name a few commands on the command line

Interview
- Do you program in your free time?
- practically no other questions, it was really mostly them doing the talking

Then offer for 4k.

Looks like they have no idea on how to attract proper talents.

Has anyone quit dbs seed and not paid the penalty? I heard if you want to quit they may take back all your salary for the time youíve stayed there.

It's a 2 year contract i think with 1 year probation. I think after probation you can just f off.

No eh now the contracts are 1 year if you do well then they extend you to the second year. So technically still 1 year.

Received the call yesterday too! Think they will call more shortlisted candidates next week!

Unregistered 22-05-2021 01:25 PM

Hi guys! For anyone who's already in SEED, is there anything incoming seeders should study/read up on before their first day? On the phone call they mentioned the first month will be training, is there anything you'd recommend reading up on before July?

I have a third class gpa and still managed to get the seed offer so I guess 2nd lower is fine. Just need to read up/study properly for the coding assessments and hackathon. Good luck.

There's no interview in SEED's application process. And they don't see your GPA at all. I was in my last semester of uni with no official transcript and yet they offered me after I passed their hackathon and my GPA is only like low 2s out of 4 lmao.

themoomoo 24-05-2021 12:27 AM

Those who got the offer, did you get 3.8k too? Or isit 5k like last time

My friend who got the offer from the March hackathon: not 3.8k
I got offer from May hackathon: also not 3.8k
(hint: annual 1st digit is 6)

If it's of any help, both of us have a STEM degree with no good hons (<= 2nd lower)

Unable to advise on those who got 3.8k offers, don't know if they are trolling or serious.
Of course, it's also up to you to believe my words since anyone can say anything here.

Are the SEEDers WFH now? How often do the SEEDers need to go back to the office?

SEEDERs turnover rate is around 60%. Now with salary reducex to 3.8k, this will definitely rise to 90%

Lol who got reduced to 3.8k? Why reduce? This program is partly funded by IMDA TechSkills Accelerator, why will reduce suddenly for no reason?

Max GPA is 4 in my uni. Not SMU. Just learn how to use angular and requests. Also do help out your assigned teammates. I think what they want to see is how well you can communicate with your team on top of your skillset.

So much fud in this thread.
Anyway to clear some of your doubts (of course you can choose to take this with a pinch of salt)

Current starting pay is 5k
Fixed rank promotion after you complete your program
You enjoy same benefits as perm staff
Entitlement to annual bonus

It really depends on what kind of projects you get in your role that helps to pave your future path.
Just try to be more proactive and voice out your interest when you get in.
