My SBI Clerical Interview Experience - Ahmedabad

Published on Tuesday, December 16, 2014
Name: Anurag Sant

Interview Date: 14/12/2014

Place: SBI Learning Centre, Thaltej, Ahmedabad

Timing Slot: 12 noon

Panel: 3

First Of all I want to tell you that I am from Rajasthan and applied from Gujarat state first time in my life, also want to thank the SBI for the arrangements for the candidates as there were newspapers (all hindi, gujrati english), tea, coffee and biscuits available for the refreshment of candidates, Sitting area was also good. But they were not allowing the parents of the candidates inside nor there were any facilities provided for them such as waiting area or rest place. They Have to wait out side the campus which was little bit unpleassant. I was alone so didn't face any such problem.

I reached the venue at 11.35 Am, and straight away there were document verification was done, after providing the instructions. One undertaking form was provided which we have to fill, just a minute work was this.

Then I arranged all the docs as per instructions and then a person checked my docs whether they are arranged properly or not. (Still not verified with originals). He took 2 thumb impressions one of RHT & one of LHT.

He also asked me where was my centre, when I gave the paper, what was the mode of paper, how much questions I attended, also seen my original id proof.

Then He send me for the docs verification table, There was a mam sitting who seen my all the docs very carefully, asked me several questions about my identity and about exam, also asked me about my character certificate, that from whom I attested it, who is the principal of my last attended college etc. She took my right thumb impressions on all the 4 copies of bio data. After docs verification she said me to sit outside where there were arrangements for the candidates. It was approximately 1.30 pm at that time and still the interviews of the morning session was going on.

So we have to wait for so long for our turn, my no was 13 so had to wait long.

They started our interview session at 3.00 PM, there were 18 candidates in my batch out of which 3 were absent and 1 had rescheduled his interview.(I also tried to reschedule my interview but unable to do it as they didn't reply to my request, having IBPS Clerk Examon the same date @ some other location, so finally I dropped IBPS Clerical exam this year and decided to give SBI Clerical Interview)

Finally, my turn came by 4.55 PM, as I entered the Intervies room there were 5 Interviewers in the panel, 4 Sirs & 1 Mam ( All aged)( 3 Sirs were having White hairs)

I prepared for the banking interview but my interview was all different, they asked me only one banking related question (Mentioned Below) in the complete Interview which lasted for atleast 25 mins.

As I Am a B. Sc. (Biology) graduate, my interview was completely based on that and General Knowledge, (not on current GK).


As I entered the room there were 5 interviewers I wished them Good Evening Mam & Good Evening Sirs. They to wish me the same and asked to take my seat on sofa. I want to add here that in the whole batch I was the only one who used the tie during the interview because I think use of tie in clerical interviews might does not give any positives but also it will not have any negative impacts.

They were sitting scattered in the room, One was sitting in front on big sofa, two were siting on either sides right and left on single single sofas, I think they want to analyse the candidate completely i.e. sitting posture, shoes, any other activities during the interview such as leg shaking etc.
