Silver medallists can still get the gold

For each person who gets an A+, there are those who get As and Bs! We call them silver medallists. They have all the skills and the culture fit but they narrowly missed out. Rest assured, we keep those talented folks in mind, considering them for when other opportunities come up.

At Grab, our commitment goes beyond the initial match. If a role isn't the perfect fit initially, we add people to our talent pool. It's remarkable how often they find their ideal match and end up coming to work here anyway!

We know that interviews can be a daunting process – but there’s no need to be nervous. These tips will help you ensure that both your values and expertise shine through in your interview. 

Here’s what we look for:

The 4 H’s

Heart, hunger, honour, and humility are essential values we look for in all potential employees–so be sure to personify these traits in your interviews.

Problem-solving and architecture design

In your interview, we’ll ask theoretical questions about your problem-solving abilities and professional skills so be sure to think out loud and walk us through your thought process.
