SBI PO is a Management Grade Entry Level Officer in SBI.

After the completion of the probation period, and on passing the complementary exams as decided by CRPD, these officials are given the charge of a Branch or Assistant Manager Posts in Branches.

Since during their training SBI PO’S are exposed to most of the related fields and are extensively trained in these fields, these officials become expert in any of the fields that SBI deals. This edge over the other Employees makes this Post very attractive as SBI PO are promoted to higher scale Posts in a short period of time.
