    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at HSBC Bank USA in May 2011.

    Interview Details

    Took 2 months. Phone interview with Human Resources. Met with both Directors and then the Department Head. Not difficult as it became clear none of the individuals had any experience conducting an interview. They ask few question and did most of the speaking. It would be a sign of things to come when I later worked in the department.

    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation. It was take it or leave it attitude by the department head.

    Senior Analyst Business Systems Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Mettawa, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mettawa, IL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at HSBC Bank USA in May 2010.

    Interview Details

    I applied for the post online on hsbc careers website. Heard back from them within a week. The initial call gave me an opportunity to ask about the profile and the pay range. The HR got all the background information and setup a call. The technical interview was setup within a week and took about an hour. It was purely technical in nature and some of them were experience based. After the interviewers approved my candidature, the manager called me and set the expectations that were required of this position. The expectations were very clear and there were no surprises. The verbal offer came in a few days but the HR never sent the actual offer in the email (fell through the cracks). After salary negotiations I finally accepted the offer and was asked to fill a few forms for background checks and was asked to take drug test.
