I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at HSBC Holdings (Wilmington, DE).
Submitted my resume online. Later, I got a call from the recruiter. After discussing my skills with the hiring manager I was called for an interview. It was very direct, the interviewer made me feel comfortable. As a result, I wasn't afraid and answered the questions with confidence.

I applied through college or university. I interviewed at HSBC Holdings.
There was a brief phone call then the next step was a panel interview. The phone call was easy and the interviewer was very friendly and personable. When I went to the HSBC offices for the second interview, there was a panel of 3 people. Afterwards, I spoke with current participants in the development program. They were all very nice.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at HSBC Holdings (New York, NY) in February 2015.
Was introduced to the team at HSBC through a mutual friend. They recently had two positions open up for analyst roles so I was called in by the Senior Vice President of that division to interview at their main location in Manhattan. My first round of interviews that day was with two Assistant Vice Presidents of that division. After that, I met with the Senior Vice President that initially reached out to me. The beginning of the next work week, I was contacted for a follow-up interview with the two heads of the division. Interviews were lengthy and we mostly spoke about prior work history, academic achievements, and the like.

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at HSBC Holdings (New York, NY) in January 2015.
I applied online and heard back a couple weeks later. Everyone at the firm was extremely nice and they made the interview process enjoyable. Phone interview was way harder then the in person interviews. Need to have knowledge of current market and business news and make sure you can talk fluently about your resume. Was asked to go into great detail about a summer internship from the previous year.
