Heard from the HR exec liasing with me that this interview is the final stage and the offer will start going out end of the week- start of next week.

I think I did ok for the interview but seems like my answer ain't what they are looking for. Think need to start looking for another job opening already

Hi may I know what questions did they ask you?

Unregistered 17-11-2013 08:32 PM

for role play, they will test you everything and anything about their products. make sure you read up on their products properly. what are the clear difference between their product and that of other banks, eg O_B_. good luck.

Pure nonsense, they will not expect you to have in depth knowledge of products.

Just focus on one's strength during interviews

Unregistered 17-11-2013 11:56 PM

might not even have role play. might even ask you to give a presentation.

Has anyone been for 2 rounds of interview for GA retail management yet? Had the interview last week. My interviewer (prob HR manager) told me that there will be another round of interviews that I will have to go for, but I have yet to hear any news about it.

Woah you got a 2nd interview for tech and ops? haven't get my call yet, hope they are still selecting... let us know how the 2nd interview goes!

Unregistered 21-11-2013 03:59 PM

Hi, how do you guys know which track you applied for? Because I only sent in my resume to dbs via jobsdb and received an email to do an online assessment test, and a virtual interview and video interview thereafter. The hr staff called me last Friday to inform me that I have progressed to the last round interview which is tomorrow. The whole application process did not require me to state which track I'm interested in. I'm have an IS degree though.

Unregistered 21-11-2013 04:02 PM

I applied for the technology and ops program though. But I did not state which track I prefer.

Unregistered123 21-11-2013 04:26 PM

Applied for GA retail mgt few weeks ago However was offered retail sales track instead. (2yr programme with hefty Bond same as retail mgt).....
Now confused whether i should take up this offer. Shd i rather join uob/ocbc as retail sales (e,g PB/PCF) where theres no bond? where training is also provided i suppose?
do advise thanks..

Do you have other job offers or career goals at the moment? If not, I think DBS is quite a good place to start your career, but at 2 years of opportunity cost..

Unregistered 21-11-2013 09:10 PM

whats retail banking sales offer like? can share? from what I know, if can sell, go anywhere also can sell lah.so no need to worry.

Unregistered 21-11-2013 09:25 PM

Unregistered 22-11-2013 01:43 AM

Unregistered 22-11-2013 02:36 PM

Unregistered 22-11-2013 03:32 PM

Unregistered 22-11-2013 03:43 PM

Hi, just went for the final round interview for GA tech and ops. I don't think I did well because they were asking a lot about where I wanna go within the bank and I didn't know how to answer. Good luck everyone!
Please do share if you've been offered or rejected. The hr told me that they will give a reply within 2 weeks (:

Mine was earlier in the day. I'm applying for ops actually. This is my second panel interview, first one was for tech. Don't know if its normal to have 2 panel interview. Personally not very hopeful for myself, may have to start searching for jobs again. Btw what did you wore for the interview? I just wore a tie but I saw the people before and after me all wearing suits for both interviews and I'm wondering if I'm a little underdressed

I'm a girl and I wore a blazer with biz pants. I'm applying for tech actually but I think the people that I met were in the operations area. Woah! That's strange! They called you up to go for another round of interview? Did you tell them you prefer ops instead of technology? They asked me and I said technology.

Hmmm maybe I should have suited up after all heh. Yeah I went for a tech interview at first at CBP. After 2 weeks then I had to go to this interview at MBFC. The hiring manager at CBP was definitely from tech while the one i saw at MBFC were definitely from ops. They didn't ask this round cause they already knew I am applying for ops when I went for the interview at CBP. The way they seem to be doing this interview does seem a little strange, some people are getting 2 and some are getting 1 interview.
