Default Working in SMRT

Hi all, hoping any kind souls out there can help me out with my questions.

My brother is applying for an IT system analyst position at SMRT and has been called for an interview. Am trying to help him find out some info because they seem to be looking to fill in quite a number of vacancies for position. Not sure if this is a red flag...

1. How many rounds of interviews are there?
2. Are the interviews very technical?
3. What kind of welfare benefits the company offer? Eg. how many annual leave, medical leave, etc.
4. How many months bonus a year on avg?
5. How is the annual increment? In terms of avg % per year.
6. How is the working culture there? In particular the IT dept. Is it very stressful in general? eg. culture of fear, blaming staff, etc?
7. How is the promotion path? Got career progression, etc?
8. What is the avg asking salary for this position here? They asked for a copy of his payslip so not sure if they can offer good basic.


Thanks very much in advance for anyone currently working/worked at SMRT (in the IT dept.) or know friends/relatives who do and can share.

Har? apply for some junior IT job in a local co. need to ask so many questions online?

Most of the company policy question why not just ask your bro to ask the HR directly, much faster.

As for the rest of the question on pay, bonus and promotion. All I can say is come on, it's just a support IT job in a gov local company, it's mostly your typical average numbers lor.

Possible to ask HR on the working culture, high turnover, etc. meh? Thought normally they will never tell you the truth, unless you have friends in the HR dept.

Eh, basic salary generally lower at SMRT than civil service? Not even sure what's considered 'normal' range for this type of IT support in civil service.

Wow, I'm sure this kind of bonus definitely only for the upper management only. That's almost 1 year worth salary O_O

Yes generally SMRT pay is lower than civil service. They considered a 2nd/3rd tier GLC, if you want pay similar to civil service then you must go for big ones like Capitaland, Keppel, SIA, CAG etc.

Also ever since the screw up, they have been very conservative of the bonus, if can get >2.5 months already considered very good.
