Business Analyst Interview
I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at HSBC Holdings (New York, NY) in January 2008.
I was initially contacted by a staffing agency recruiter who directly sent my resume to the hiring manager of HSBC Securities. I was brought in for an interview with the manager and some of the team, and then I was given a phone interview by an HR Coordinator
- Why do you want to work for this company or in this specific role 1 Answer
- I see your background thus far has been engaged in consulting projects, why did you undertake so many and why do you now want a permanent role? (in my case I had undertaken three temp or project-based assignments before deciding to focus on procuring a full-time permanent role) 1 Answer
I wasn't able to negotiate. In considering the offer, I would recommend you ask a lot of questions about the role, about recent projects that the group has undertaken, and the growth prospects in the role.

I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at HSBC Holdings (London, England (UK)) in June 2013.
3 interviews ,pretty quick process, 3/4 week background screening. On boarding is very lacking.
- Clearly HR is completely disconnected from hiring managers. None of the important questions HR stressed got asked during interview with hiring manager. A lot of technical questions were asked but none of the skills is needed on the job. Answer Question
If you have good skill and confident, you can negotiate good deal but it doesn't mean you will use those skills on the job
