Interview Question – it was a competency based interview so nothing particularly was difficult View Answer
Very Easy Interview
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 5 days - interviewed at HSBC Holdings in August 2011.
Interview Details – short q&a w indiv mgrs followed by a side-by-side w a working representative, additional inquiries abt confidence w the tasks, and a script reading. I received a call the same day, but i don't know if that's standard. following "due process," 3 wk training, then 3 wk ojt.
Interview Question – the interview wasn't about tripping me up, or strengths and weaknesses. interviewers seemed more interested in candidate attitude, an abilities to listen and speak well. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – there is no negotiation. the offer is the offer.
I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at HSBC Holdings in February 2010.
Interview Details – Started with online application followed by numerical and verbal reasoning tests. This was followed by a telephone interview, followed by a half day assessment centre. This was 1 on 1 (ie just yourself and your assessor, not group tasks) based around customer service. The first task was an extended interview, the second 2 were tasks (one a roleplay). The assessment centre was conducted by an external recruitment team.
Interview Question – No particularly difficult questions, typical competency Qs, plus some others like if you could pick ANY job in the world, what would your dream job be and why? Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Very helpful recruitment team. The process is a little lengthy and they didn't seem to notice when I was slow in returning documentation (so if you're hanging on to hear back from another interview, pushing it a little seemed to be ok!)
I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at HSBC Holdings in June 2009.
Interview Details – Applied online and received a callback approximately three weeks later. Interviewed by the HR manager, and two HSBC representatives. Almost all questions were behavioural questions with some general interview questions thrown in. I thought the interview went well, felt very confident but did not get the job.
