For MHA, there are uniformed (can be from police, scdf, cnb) and non uniform officers (under HASE scheme so they are MX)

Difficult to talk about work life balance as it depends on department
Yeah, I mean under the HASE scheme. Understood that it depends on department! On average, what is it like though? Is it the 9-6 type with occasional OT? For non-science type roles (so not engineer, IT etc.)

May I know how much is the offer, fresh grad here waiting for interview result from HDB.

Unregistered Dont get to obsess with the titles. Different ministries and stats board do it differently.

Some position in some stats board are quite inflated.

I had friends who is a Senior Executive in MHA and earn more than an assistant director in LTA despite same years of service and honours.

Sometime you just need to count how low you are in the “food chain” and you know if your titles really meant anything. There is a difference between Assistant Director leading group of graduates and Assistant Director who has no one reporting to him.

You can try to request HDB to give you one more week extension. Or tell LTA HR frankly you have another offer and need a quicker confirmation saying you prefer LTA. Alternatively, accept HDB first and when LTA comes, just say sorry to HDB and do so before you sign appt letter. I know it is not nice to do so, but you have to consider your own future sometimes. I believe HR is quite used to such things. If all don’t work, then just take the risk of rejecting HDB and pray no surprises from LTA. All the best.

Unregistered Just want to update all that I had just received a rejection email after emailing the HR twice. Applied for the position 2 months ago and attended 2 interviews shortly after. So if you need an answer to plan, it would be good to check with HR directly because many times they will not update in [email protected]

Usually 1-2 rounds and in-between rounds can be 1-2 weeks.
