    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at HSBC - HDPI.

    Interview

    Mainly statistical concepts and project discussions. No technical questions on Statistical tools. 1 round from India and one US round. Poor hike offered. HR ppl not cooperative at all. No co-relation of qualification with the salaries offered. the only thing that matters to them is years of work experience.

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at HSBC - HDPI.

    Interview

    There will be a round to test communication in English with some logical reasoning. I think nowadays they are testing typing speed as well. This is a general round. Then the process specialists comes in and does the questioning. This could be technical and grueling,

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at HSBC - HDPI (Gurgaon, Haryana (India)) in November 2014.

    Interview

    - Contacted by recruiter for Risk/change manager.
    - Face to face was set up in Gurgaon office, which is like 30 miles/50 km from my home.
    - Went there at the specified time. Looked like a blood donation camp. Everyone was sitting in the lobby and were called to different rooms for interviews.
    - Was asked to fill in the form and then waited.
    - The interviewer panel acted weird. The interviewer would come out of their room and look at the resumes - 4 or 5 at a time, then would decide who will they interview. Didn't make much sense to me. I saw them laughing while going through some resumes,in front of the candidates, which was totally unprofessional. If you think the resume doesn't fit your requirement, beat your HR for calling the candidates. Don't laugh on the candidates. They have paid out of their pocket to come to your office. Please show some respect.
    - Saw people sitting for 3 hours. I was told that the process would be over in 2 hours, but no one even called my name in 2 hours. Left after 2 hours, without any form of communication from HSBC HR/recruitment team. I wasn't the only one , who left in frustration. There were 3-4 more other candidates, who could not tolerate the nonsense behavior by HSBC team and had left before me.
    - Many people in their reviews on glassdoor have said that senior management in Gurgaon/Indian office is not good. This Interview process gave me a good hint of what to expect. If this is their best behavior, I cannot imagine the worst part.

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at HSBC - HDPI (Calcutta (India)).

    Interview

    for IT people, its more of 1-2 interview (face to face or telephonic) followed by HR round. But you already have any reference (in higher position off course) inside, it works like a magic. Your overall presentation does matter here
