Postby newlifeinsg » Tue, 02 Nov 2010 1:36 pm

Hi Everybody,

I am from India. I got a job in citibank as 1 yr contract through a consultancy in singapore. I have some doubts reg employment, employment pass, life and work culture please help me by answering the questions you know.

1. How was the background check goes (is it through consultancy or client).
2. He got 1 yr contract with Citibank, is it good to accept?
3. He was a bachelor, and the company offered S$4000 per month, is it enough?
4. How the EP gets approved? Is there any verification goes when he apply to permanent EP?
5. What is the main criteria to get the permanent EP approved?
6. If you know anything about Citibank, please let us know.

Very stringent. MOM usually has their own teams, otherwise, hired guns in the country you are from.

2. He got 1 yr contract with Citibank, is it good to accept?

Better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick. Most are one year contracts.

3. He was a bachelor, and the company offered S$4000 per month, is it enough?

Yes - others will say you need more, but getting in the door it the important thing - especially when your grammer needs work.

4. How the EP gets approved?

After all the background checks are done.

Is there any verification goes when he apply to permanent EP?

There is no such thing as permanent EP.

5. What is the main criteria to get the permanent EP approved?

See Above

6. If you know anything about Citibank, please let us know.

It's a Full Service Bank.


Thanks in advance..

Yeah, it annoys me as well. Usually I catch it with the spell checker but now & again, it slips through! :oops:
