IBPS Clerk IV Interview Experiences: Gaurav Pareek

Name- Gaurav Shyamsunder Pareek

Exam- IBPS Clerk IV
Category- Person with Disability (Hearing Impaired)
Profession- Asst. Accountant and Admin Clerk
Place and Time- Vashi, Mumbai. Bank of Maharashtra Raigad Regional Office, Panel V

Vashi is very far away from my town, so left early... Early? Um, to be precise... Interview reporting time is 1 PM and I left my place at 9.30 AM... (Yep, crazy)

^ My Professional Editing Skills, no claps please...

So I reached at 12 PM, and the Regional Office was very small... I mean, they had to arrange a tent (the ones we find in marriages) outside the office with biscuits and water at the centre of 16 chairs...

One by one they were calling us in to verify and then interview...

Me and my buddy from HI category were asked to wait in the Manager's cabin, Manager himself verified our documents, meanwhile, we were told to write a paragraph about "Majha Desh" (Marathi). I wrote some broken Marathi of mine, with a grin on my face... Manager said, they're just checking the basic knowledge of regional language, its not a big deal... I said okay, and wrote some more because this made me feel relaxed...

After verification, I was called in for interview...

(After a conversation with Manager, there was a little boost in my confidence)

Entered the room, wished everyone...

(Round corporate table, like the ones we see in films)

I don't even remember how many panel member were there, but for sure there was a female...
