    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a dayinterviewed at HSBC Bank USA in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    This was for a consulting position. I was contacted by a recruiter for interview. When I went in I met the VP the questions were the general interview questions such as talking about my resume. Then she called another VP who I would be supporting and we had an interview over the phone. After the interview I thought it was fine and then the recruiter told me since it is a consulting role it usually moves fast. Towards the end of the week I was contacted by the recruiter that I got the position.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at HSBC Bank USA in August 2013.

    First step was with HR
    Next step was with hiring manager and branch service manager. They basically make a pitch to you about the bank and how great it is. It's all based on how much the interviewer likes you.

    Interview Questions
    • They were really basic, like:
      What made you choose HSBC?
      How do you deal with stress?
      What do you see yourself doing in 5 years?
        Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There's a previously agreed upon rate by the individual branch. When you negotiate, HR then has to discuss with that branch and see if they have the budget to meet your requirements.
