Default Interview for LTA executive engineer post

Is anybody ever Interviewed for LTA engineer post?

Is it difficult?

What question they will ask normally?

It's always hard to know what to expect when going in for that interview with gov like LTA -- and preparation can make all the difference?

What is the interview process like at Land Transport Authority (lta)? and hw long thw duration takes?

I attend LTA interview in May with the director of the dept. Only 1 to 1 interview, no HR personnel.

It was an informal interview.

Common question:
-why you left previous company, job scope of previous company....etc
-he ask you what did you know about the position you applied....
-then he chit-chat with me on other transport topic on the future technology on transportation......
-he even talk about his hobby like very into "feng shui" stuff....


2weeks later, and no call from the HR mean I am not selected for the "formal" interview...



by the way do you know the starting pay for fresh degree grad this year 2012 for engineer?
1st class with NS= ?
2 upper with NS= ?
2 lower with NS= ?
any ideas??


I only know that in 2007, fresh degree 2nd lower mechanical engineer with NS getting 2.9k

4 yrs 4.8k is too high. Even if your 4 yrs exp is deemed 100% relevant, max you can push for is 4.3k.
