The State Bank of India (SBI) conducts the SBI bank P.O exam to shortlist eligible Indian citizens for the post of Probationary Officers (P.O.), who may be posted across the country.
Probationary officers will be on probation for two years, during which they will be given intensive training. As they near the end of the program they will have to appear for screening. Those who are able to attain the subjected standards may be confirmed and posted in a higher grade (Officer Middle Management Grade Scale II), while others who have qualified but have failed to attained the higher standards will be confirmed as Officer Junior Management Scale Grade I. Those who are unable to clear the screening process will have their services terminated. SBI offers growth opportunities as well as potential benefits such as posting abroad. The promotion policy allows some candidates to reach top management grades.
