Friends, here is the Group Discussion and Interview Experience of the State Bank of India's Probationary Officers shared by Mr. Navaneetha Krishnan A. We are very thankful to him for sharing this valuable information with us (it is his third update. Earlier he has shared his IBPS Specialist Officers Interview Experience and Preference Lists). Read his GD and Interview Experiences of SBI PO in his own words.

Name : NavaneethaKrishnan A

Date & Time : 05-07-2013 & 11:00 AM

Panel : Panel 1(4 members )

Document Verification Started by 10:30 AM

Group Discussion Topic : Factors affecting India's Growth

My Batch comprised of 12 candidates . Everyone were given 2 minutes to put forth their points . If you exceed the time limit, you will be interrupted by the panelist and then they will proceed to the next candidate. After the completion of first round, i.e. if all the candidates have spoken and if anyone wishes to provide new points . He/She will be given one minute.

Just make sure that you put forth new points and do not reiterate the points that were discussed earlier by other candidates . It will have a negative effect on your selection/marks . Be brief in what you wish to say, precise to the point :)

Interviews were scheduled after Lunch (Free Lunch from SBI :P).

Interview :

Start Time:2:41 PM

Duration: 10 Minutes

Questions Asked in Interview are :
  • Why you chose BTech IT ?
  • What is ur designation in ur current company ?
  • What is ur package ?
  • What is the package SBI PO would offer ?
  • Why people are switching from IT to Bank ?
  • (Questions that were asked hereon where from the points that i had given in GD)
  • So be prepared my friends of what you choose to speak on GD. You will be grilled on it during your interview .
  • What is fiscal deficit ?
  • How is it represented ?
  • What additional value will you provide if you join our bank ?
  • Why not IT Officer Scale 2 ?
Hope it helps. All the Best :)
