First of all I want to say thank you all for participating on wikijob as I have gained a lot from this board. I would like to write about my application experience with BW as I found it hard to get useful/recent information about them especially with regards to the Telephone Interview.
The telephone interview was in four parts. When I started answering the questions there was silence at the other end so I was concerned the interviewer could not hear me. I think my replies were being recorded hence the silence. I would suggest that anyone who experiences this carries on as it was a bit awkward when I kept stopping and asking if she could hear me
- Why BW, Who are our main competitors? What is BW’s competitive advantage over the organisations mentioned? Why private banking at BW?
- Apart from that mentioned in your application, tell me a trend in the industry with profit potential for BW. What do you know about CFA and the potential benefits to you.
- Where do you source your financial information? What would you advocate as a way to stabilise the world economy? What is the economy like in the location you applied to and potential for BW? A company you would invest in and why.
- A time you worked in a team and what did you do to ensure its success? An interesting project you undertook at uni or in school
This interview was very technical and the email from BW did absolutely NOTHING to prepare me for it. LOL. All in all, I was told I would hear back in 14days and all I can do is watch and pray.
All the best.
