Business Analyst Interview

Business Analyst
New York, NY

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at HSBC Holdings in January 2008.

Interview Details – 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

Interview Questions

  • Why do you want to work for this company or in this specific role   View 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)   View Answer

Negotiation Details – 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 and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at HSBC Holdings in June 2013.

Interview Details – 3 interviews ,pretty quick process, 3/4 week background screening. On boarding is very lacking.

Interview Question – 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

Negotiation Details – 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
