    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Port Coquitlam, BC (Canada)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at HSBC Canada in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    Firstly received a phone interview generally asking about your status and behavior questions. Then went to a branch for face to face interview. The recruiters are the assistant branch manager and operation specialist. They asked me about my customer services experiences and also tested my language qualification. However, the HR efficiency is not very high and I waited for almost 1 month for the recruiting process.
