Here is my Interview experience.

I have completed my B.Tech (ECE) in 2013 from JNTU-H. After B.Tech I joined in ECIL as apprentice and also joined in a institute. It was too hard to manage office and coaching but i managed it. I started my preparation before 45 days of the exam and took permission from my DGM.

I reached the venue at 8.00 am. there were only 2-3 people before me. Verification started at sharp 08.30 and I called at 11.40. They were really strict about documents so be careful.

Finally my turn came around 12.45pm. There was 5members in my panel(4M,1F) they sat like this(F1,M4,M3,M2,M1)  M3 leading the panel.

I opened the door and greeted them with a smile but i knew that i was little nervous bcs that was my very 1st interview.
Now the interview starts

M3: So, you are Sai Pavan
me: Yes, sir.
M3: ok sit comfortably and stick your back to chair.
me:ok, thank you sir.

M3 indicated F1 to ask some questions.
F1:If you are placed as a manager what you'll do for development of the bank.
me:I explained it by considering one aspect i.e. increasing number of customers.(I had thoughts of recovering NPAs and controlling Sub prime Lending but due to the situation i couldn't explained. this is the more effective answer compared to my answer) But she was impressed by my way of explaination.

M2:What do you ask for opening a bank account?
me:Sir, to open a account every banks has to follow KYC norms guidelines issued by RBI. It includes Passport photo,ID proof and Address proof.
M2:For business persons?

M4:What is EVM?
me:Electronic Voting Machine sir.
M4:How it works?(he asked me bcs i mentioned that i worked in ECIL)

Almost all of them were impressed.

M4:If you placed in other state how you'll serve them?

M5 was the silent observer he watching me very seriously due to him i was more tensed.
Ok you can go.
Thank you sir,
