UBI Staff training center, Guwahati
Time: 1pm, panel 3.
Document verification completed & my turn came at 5:30 p.m. (Last member)
6 members in the panel(M1,F,M2,M3,M4,M5,M6)
Entered & wished good evening & took a seat.
M3: So, Abhishek, where are you from?
Me: I hail from Tinsukia which is in upper Assam.
M3: Are Bhai, come-on, fast, introduce yourself.
Me: Gave introduction.
M3: Why you have come to banking being an engineer??
Me: Sir, back in Wipro I used to do computer network maintenance, so it was a totally repeatitive & monotonous process, & most importantly, it lacks decision making. I always love to communicate with people & takes decisions so that I can feel valuable for the organisation. Banking sector will give me enough scope as well as a challenge to make decisions.
M2: What is IDBI?
M2: IDBI does retail banking?
Me: Don’t know.
M5: what is SIDBI & NABARD?
M6: What are the equities of RRBs?
M3: Abhishek, there will be a lot of pressure, how will you handle it?
Me: Sir, pressure might be there, but people are there who are doing it, so if they can , I’ll also be able to do it in due course of time.
M5: If you are posted in ‘Dima Hasao’ which is nearby Nagaland border, will you work?
Me: Yes of course (pretended as if I don’t know Nagaland is a disturbed area).
M3: Ok Abhishek, thank you, that’s all.
Me: Thank you very much sir & I came out (the good thing is, they wrapped it up within 7 minutes as I was the last member).
My interview was totally based on the presence of mind, nothing very tough about banking was asked.
