Community Banker was asked...2 August 2015

The entire interview was competency based. The Hiring Manager was reading out a competency relevant to the role. And I was supposed to give examples from my work or personal life. No trick questions, e.g. what is your weakness, how would others describe you, etc. Overall, very formal.

okay thank you.i have mine next week and i dont know what to expect. were there any role plays involved and was the interview process intimidating? Less

In my particular case - no, no role play and not intimidating at all. Just read their competencies and think of your specific examples that you can use for each case. My whole interview was very formal and purely focused on competencies. Would probably depend on interviewer's individuality. Less

This would be my answer. Tell me about a time you identified risk in the organization? -The first time I identified risk was when our company website was hacked. How did you identify it as a risk? -It was easy to identify, as there was a message stating that the website was hacked. What could it have affected the organization? -There are a few things that could have been affected such as getting access to customer details, but we kept all such details in different secured locations. What steps did you take to minimize the risk etc? -The worst in this scenario was a downed website which was easily set up again as we had a backup. It was also easy locating the insecure areas and making the site secure accordingly. Also made use of a few scripts to prevent and warn if such problems from happening again. The system was able to automatically block any unauthorised tampering, and as a result the problem never resurfaced. Less

I identified and raised the risk that we needed to performance and load test the connections as part of a proper staging release. I raised the risk to infrastructure and put a plan in place to add additional resource and time to the release plan The aim was to assess and reduce the risk and come up with an alternative should the risk materialise as having an affect on performance degradation.
