Hi Friends,

I am Sivasankari. I had my SBI Clerk Interview today (9th December 2014) at Madurai in Tamilnadu. I would like to share my experience with you all.

Name : Sivasankari 

Date  : 09/12/2014

Place : Madurai, Tamilnadu

Venue : SBI, Arasaradi Branch, SS Colony

Time : 9 AM

First of all,the staff there were very friendly and treated the candidates well.

I reached the venue by 8.30 AM.We were asked to sit in a waiting area according to our panel number.There they asked us to arrange the documents in following order.

Required Documents

1. 10/12 th marksheet
2. ID proof (This was not mentioned in call letter but they asked for it)
3. Degree consolidated marksheet (If not yet issued then sem-wise mark sheets)
4. Degree certificate
5. 2 Character certificates (1 from instituition(Conduct certificate) last studied and 1 from Gazetted officer)
6. OBC certificate(If any)
7. Medical certificate (If any)
8. Ex-servicemen discharge book (If any)
9. Bio-data form (1 original and 4 copies)

Please note that you have to fill up the form, take photocopies, paste the photos in all 5 forms and sign it across. Self attestation is sufficient for photo copies of above said documents. Only for identity certificate and character certificate gazetted officer sign is needed.

By 10.15 AM I was called for document verification. It hardly took 10 mins. After that I was asked to wait for my turn for interview.

At 12.05 PM, I was called in for interview.I asked permission to enter the room and wished them all. It was a small room and there were 5 panel members.One lady and 4 gentlemen. We were all seated so closely as if we were having GD :) Head of the panel was sitting opposite to me and he started the interview. There were no formal questions for me like tell me about yourself and all. Below are the questions of my interview as exactly as I remember.

Head: Have you prepared well for the interview?
Me: Yes sir
Head : So u are a science graduate in school..
Me : Yes sir
Head: Did you ask any person who has completed interview about the questions we asked?
Me: I told that I asked for what type of questions you were asking and got reply as from hobbies and general knowledge.
M4: Did you ask the exact questions we asked?
Me: No sir. I did not ask that.
Head: Have you been to banks before?
Me: Yes sir
Head: Tell me how a bank or any office should be so that you would be happy and satisfied
Me: Answered
Head: Will you be happy if you are asked to wait in a large queue for ur banking transactions?
Me:Answered
Head: Can a male handle a counter better or a female handle a counter in bank better?
Me: It does not depend on gender..It depends upon individual person
M2: What can we do to reduce queue in Banks? What can we do to make people do their bank transactions without visiting banks?
Me: Told about Mobile banking,Internet banking, ATMs etc
M2: What are the transactions we can do in these?
Me: Explained about Bill payments, statement, funds transfer, withdrawal, etc
M3: Who wrote Ponniyin selvan? (My hobby was reading tamil novels)
Me: Mr.Kalki
M3: Who will be signing 1 rupee notes?
Me: Answered
L1: Can we open a fixed deposit using internet banking without visiting bank?
Me: Answered
M4: What is the controversy of Ranjit Sinha case?
Me: Answered
Head: Showed me a pic of a man shouting his password and date of birth and asked me whether it is a happy situation
Me: Answered
Head: What will happen if he do that?
Me: Answered
Head: What is OTP?
Me: Answered

Finally head of the panel said thank you and shook my hands. I thanked everyone in the room and came out.Overall it was a nice interview and the panel members were very friendly. They encouraged me to answer well, gave ample time to think & answer and gave me clues if I miss a point and move on. Total time was 15 mins.

So friends be confident and genuine..Be who you are.. All the best  :)

  39. Hello Sivasankari, that was a good interview. I have one question. Regarding the biodata, do we have to sign in the photocopies afterwards or before taking the xerox. Also for identity certificate, do we have get attested 5 times or get one time and make copy of that. Please clear my doubt.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I don't know whether these are correct.. But this is what I replied friends..


    1. The interviewer showed me a picture with a man telling his name, password and DOB.. He asked me whether the situation in that picture was a happy one.. I said that it was not a happy one and its undesirable as he is disclosing his password and sensible information.. The interviewer asked me what will happen if we disclose passwords.. I replied that anybody can access his information which may be personal and he may lose money too..


    2. The interviewer asked me how an office should be in a customer point of view.. I said that in first view it should be well organized and the staff should be helpful and friendly.. Also the staff should understand my needs well and help me to carryout my transactions smoothly..
