SBI SO 2019 Vacancy Details

The State Bank of India specialist cadre examination offers the following four posts- the specialist executive manager, the general deputy manager (law, contractual), general deputy manager (law) and deputy manager (law). The recruitment process for all these posts is different.

  • The recruitment process for the post of specialist executive manager and general deputy manager (both regular and contractual) is done through two steps. The first step to recruit a candidate for the said three posts is through shortlisting. This process depends on the qualifications of the aspirant and the candidates with the most experience and most reliable qualification under the eligibility criteria will be selected first for the second round.
  • The second step will be the interview process where the candidate is required to answer a few questions related to their qualifications and their knowledge over the basic requirements for the job. In the interview process the interviewers note the body language of the candidate and the leadership factor that they are looking for. The said posts require the candidate to be able to manage a staff and to take responsibility for their actions as well.

  • The post of deputy manager is filled by allowing the candidates to write an exam about reasoning, quantitative, English language and the basic professional knowledge. The exam details are given in the earlier part of the article.
  • The candidates who can clear the cut off marks are then required to give an interview.
