By intern u mean the young seeder program?

Ya it's quite shag, dbs will OT alot unless you are lucky WFH... They can't bother u lol

The hours quite bad last I recall, it's 9 hrs instead of 8.

"Apply Online and interact with JIM! Our very own AI recruiter."

Is JIM supposed to email us after submitting application form? I had applied 3 weeks ago.

This is quite surprising to be honest as I have numerous experiences in bb banks and I am easily advancing to further stages for other foreign banks.

Never had problems passing the resume screening stage, don't know what DBS is looking for? Anyhow, good luck to those that got shortlisted.

What kind of experience? Since you so zai, have vast experience in BB banks, why are you applying for local bank 2 years contract?

You do know that this is a 0-2 YOE program right? it sounds like you have way more than 2 YOE so yeah of course you would not advance to the further stage here...

Was referring to the graduate associate program. And I think DBS is a good bank too.

no problem,

I don't think it's better in other teams, I got a few friends working in different teams, and they said the same thing you did lol lots of people OT, they themselves OT sometimes.. even tho intern pay has no OT.

Anyway, does anyone here know if this is 60k annual pay only? no bonus / other compensations?

I'm not sure but I can tell you this, their HR system is damn bad. last time when I apply for their internship, they send me offer almost 2 months later... nonsense lol i want work at dbs but not that despo to wait 2 months for a stupid internship

my advice is just dont expect much from any 1 company. go apply to many places.

ya it has always been like that, the past 2 year batches also.

usually if by 1 week after ur hackathon u dont get any email, means u need to go for second round. round 2 is where the people who applied late will go for their first hackathon.

so basically u will join the people who got offered their first hackathon. then from there they'll assess again so try and stand out more this time round.

so far i've not heard of anyone going for more than 3 techtrek. i only have 1 friend who went for 3 times but thats because hes quite cui lol cant even understand static vs local var

I see! Thanks for your reply! :) Another question, they only conduct one online assessment for both the Jan and July batches right? Since there's only 1 application period. For those who are joining the July batch, will they receive emails on hackathon slight later? Or they should receive it during the same period as those entering in Jan?

Yes, the online assessment is a 1 time thing that lasts for a year.

as for the intake... same hackathon date for both.

the july intake might receive offer later than the jan intake. but no guarantee, i have friends who got offer 1 day after hackathon then had to wait months because their start date is damn far lol

Unregistered 01-10-2021 06:29 PM

anyone from 30 sep hackathon got offered already?

Unregistered 01-10-2021 07:26 PM

Why can't you scroll a few pages up? How to be entitled 101. You think people who got in will keep surfing this thread too just to tell you it's 60k?

Ohh so all Jan and July batches will be taking the same Hackathon? Weird, because I saw someone stated there's a 23rd Oct Hackathon, and now someone said there's a 30th Sep Hackathon? :o

yea DBS is not really good at managing things.

u can ask any of ur seeder / young seeder intern friends, they OT like crazy and the pay is damn low ( look at overall, don't just look at monthly... )

Unregistered 03-10-2021 09:56 PM

I think they OT like crazy cuz they dont know a lot of stuff. If you are really good at your stuff, you can easily 3x to 5x doing it faster than others and with better results. Take an example mobile app. You take noobs like seeders that barely pass because of low hiring bar. It will take them like 1 month or even 2 months to finish to do list app. But for someone who is really proficient at android development, they can easily finish the app in 1 week with much better results and less bug.
