    I interviewed online - interviewed at HSBC Canada.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and was contacted for a phone interview which was held about 2-3 weeks after submitting my application. I was given about a week's notice for the interview. The interview was a pretty standard behavioural based interview. I was asked a lot of questions about previous job positions, time and stress management and how you have dealt with each situation. I thought the interview process was quite typical and it went alright. However, the interviewer didn't sound very engaging and she had quite a rude tone, especially when I was asking her questions at the end.

    My resume was submitted by a friend who worked at the firm. A week later a phone interview was arranged and a few days later was invited to a panel interview. They asked a variety of open ended questions and asked how each one what actions one would take. People were very friendly. A verbal language interview was then conducted individually.
