Go through it..
Hi all friends,
I have appeared for the interview on 20th of August in Chennai for Karur Vysya Bank Probationary Officer post.
I woke up at early morning with full eagerness as this is the first Genuine Interview I m going to face.After met up with all Madras traffic tragedies I reached KVB towers near DMS early on 9.00 AM even though my Interview starts at only 10.30 AM as they have mentioned in the Call letter.
At first I asked them who are in the ground floor about the place of interview, they all replied that it should be at 3rd floor (unfortunately no one was sure about where ti will be held). So I got into 3rd floor by lift,but the people there asked me to wait in the second floor for a while.
When I came into second floor by steps I saw many people already waiting there and a bit of fear in all(includes myself) there faces.
Some of them aged above 30 and I really wonder Why they coming here at this age?
But later Came to know they are all came for Scale II and higher posts.
Time is moving very slowly and after waited for hours I called up for Certificates verification after only 12.30 PM,
They have asked us to self-attest the photocopies and did the same before I got to them it was finished earlier than i expected as I already tagged all the originals and photo copies in the order they required.
In overall it went fine.
Then they asked me to wait in the Chaired Queue , I m in 6th place from the one who is going to face up the panel first. But eventually just 3 of them interviewed and they called the session for Lunch.
After had a quick lunch I came back to the interview hall on 1.30 PM.
In a course of 20 minutes my turn came.
I asked "May I come in,Sir" politely.
One of the panel member responded as early as I asked and directed me to the my seat as well.
I think instead of Good afternoon I wished "Good morning".
So He asked me to have a deep breath and take my time to get relaxed.
The first question he asked was
"Tell me about your Family?"
My concentration/Hearing sense something went wrong and I replied,
"About myself or my family sir.."
He skipped it and started to frame questions based on my Bio-Data (KVB collected Bio-Data from all candidates with all details they needed)
"What are your parents doing?"
"You are the only son of your parents, right"
"You will be the earning member of your family"
"What are your sisters doing"
"Both of my sisters got married sir"
"You have finished your Engineering, Didn't you got any placement offers"
"I studied in a Start up college where mine is the first batch and unfortunately we didn't got any campus recruitments in our college this year"
"Where is your College"
"X college is near to XX, and next to XXX"
"After finished Engineering Why you are coming to Banking Sector?"
I replied that
"I thought Engineering is the best option when I finished my schooling.But after studied for an year I realized Engg is not the best bet for me and my nature and started working on Which field will suits for me?, By taking some advice from my uncle I worked on Both Aptitude and Technical.
I was strong in Aptitude but not in Technical.
Then looked up for the Exams that could be taken up by an Engineer with sound aptitude skills. Then decided to go with Banking as I felt it is the best option for me"
"Is that Unlce who advised you has any Daughter?" (Laughing)
"No,Sir" (With little laugh)
"Do you have bank account?"
"No sir, My father having an account with Karur Vysya Bank since 2007 as KVB is the nearest ATM from our College"
"Oh..fine, and tell me what you have studied in your Engineering"
I given them the details of my curriculum, and described a few words on every semester.
"You have more communication papers than electronics isn't it?"
"Yes we do have more in the later part of our Course, In first two years electronics is the major occupying Stream then it is communication and computers at later parts"
Then they asked a few questions on Engineering
"What is the Difference between AC-DC? "
"Alternating Current -Direct Current" with some explanations.
"What are the topologies?"
"Mesh,Star,Bus,Ring,Tree and Hybrid"
"Which topology you would prefer?"
"Star" and tell them Why.
"What is CDMA?"
"Code Division Multiple Access"and told some info regarding CDMA. They expected me to answer about technology but I was able to give them oly a brief explanation about CDMA.
"Difference between Electrical and Electronics?"
"Differs in Voltage level, Electrical deals with High Voltage where Electronics deals with Voltage below 12V"
"So, without Electrical,Electronics would not function?"
"Yes, But Electronics can shape up Electrical well" and continued by there few questions regarding it.
"How does ATM functioning?"
"By the Method of Encryption - Cryptography, when the smart card number and the pass code matches the user allowed to access the account data and able to withdraw money"
"What is the back-end process of ATM operations?"
"The account informations stored in a place, and connected to the network. When User made request to withdraw money, The account is looked up for its details.If it has sufficient money and the pass code matches means further proceedings can be done"
"The place where the informations stored is called..."
"Sorry sir, I Dont Know"
"Server it is"
"Sorry sir, I was thinking on banking terms rather than network terminologies for it," and then explained about Server and Database briefly.
And some more questions with it which I am not able to recollect now.
After that they said "Thats it you can leave."
While I m leaving One of the panel member Said
"Be sincere to your Job"
His words made me to think "I got it" .
That's It the interview process was over.
