well yeah but some people will never (or cant take overnight shift) no matter how much the pay is. they can work outside of normal working hours but they just unable to work regular overnight shifts. so sometimes better to still ask just in case at the right time. as for caliper of course better to be honest than to try and "ace" it.
I agree that not everyone is ok with regular night shift. To me the chances of doing OT is much higher than night shifts, I can't really comment much on people with family or any other commitments though.

I think the end goal of everyone here is to get converted into perm 1 way or another, not focused about working hours and so on. I got called by both first and second choice. The interview for each of them gives me very distinct vibe from each other.

If your concern is shift rotation. If there are a lot of shifts (like 12 hr night 12 hr day rotation), they definitely would have mention it during the interview. Overtime and standby though, sometimes they might forget to mention because it is "normal" to them, for those whom have been working in IT field for long. Also if they do offer you, you probably still can ask these questions and think for a few days before you accept or reject.

If your concern is pay. Then you have signed up for the wrong program, and kindly let the others who want it more have it hehe. I believe many will still take up this program even if the pay was only 5.5k in total for the whole 2 years (yes, just 5.5k for whole 2 years, not per month).
5.5k for 2 years? That's provided the company pays for my HDB loan and children's expenses.

Indeed they did for 35 mins. A lot of very technical questions. Approximately about 55%-60% of their questions are on infrastructure rather than just cloud. Hope this helps for those to be interviewed this week / coming weeks.

my interview with UOB is somewhat similar to what you described. To them cloud are just one of many tools used in infrastructure. I was not asked questions like xaas, cloud model nor any infrastructure paradigm. They are more curious on my understanding on architecture, microservices, networking and security.

Seems OCBC started interview for DA & CC track. No updates regarding CS and Full Stack tracks.

Anyone got any updates for OCBC?
