I was asked quite generic questions.
-Why MINDEF
-What do you know about MINDEF (recent achievements/on the news)
-Why previous work experiences in private sector, not civil
-How do you feel about OT
-Where else did you apply to

Other questions they asked had to do with the essay questions I answered for the written test. E.g. how to better improve MINDEFís strategies in a certain area.

HR asked generic qns also like what are your greatest strengths/weakness.

Didnít get to proceed to site visit, however.

Good luck for your interview!

The written test is made up of essay qns. 2 qns. I think the interviewers choose what qns they want to ask you. I had 1 qn related to the position and the other one was generic HR qn about strengths.

I have seen a Malay girl taking the psychometric test in the room, so probably means they did get shortlisted for test at least.
