SBI PO 2017 Interview Experience 2

Hello Aspirants.

Below is the SBI PO 2017 Interview Experience.

Name : Sidhartha Vishwambhar Kamble

Place : Mumbai. Morning 8 am batch.

In group discussion there were 2 panelists and we 10 aspirants. They initially told us that this is not the knowledge test.we are just examining how you behave in group. So we were chill.

Topic for GD: Should India give top priority to growth and development or to equal distribution of national wealth.

We talked about 10 mins but we haven’t reach at consensus, though I tried to conclude.

Then , Group Exercise: As a manager which of the following attributes he should have. Arrange in sequence you prefer. And have a discussion on it later on.

  • Time management
  • Delegation
  • Leadership
  • Communication
  • Maintaining discipline and crisis management
  • Motivation
  • Selecting right peoples and improving them

Sorry I forgot last 1.

Again we had a healthy discussion, and I again tried to reach at consensus but we failed to reach. Still we had already told by panelists that there is no necessity to reach at consensus and will not affect your marks.
Then, interview.
I thought two panelists of GD will be there for interview too but that was not the case.
5 panelists at interview, chairmen(a confident,  cordial , and experienced man), 2 female, 2 male.
I entered after knocking and wished them good morning,(I was the first aspirant of the day for interview).  They offered me chair I sat.

Chairman: so, SIDDHARTH , you are from Jalna, tell something about Jalna.
Me: talked about separation of Jalna from Aurangabad, then about drought hit region, about irrigation and crops.

Chairman : industries in Jalna ?

Chairman : introduce yourself

Then he moved to members.
