I will be interviewed by HSBC soon and I want to see the question before I get interviewed. Since this is my first interview ever, I will come back and make some complement.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at HSBC Holdings (New York, NY) in November 2012.

    Interview

    After applying online I was contacted by an HR rep to set up a phone interview that was entirely behavioral. When this was complete she set up the in-person interview on the spot. I was then asked to answer three essay questions: What is the most important quality? What is a leader? A Manager?, and What makes great customer service? The onsite interview is somewhat intimidating. It is a panel interview with four members of HSBC from different areas. They all ask you questions from different categories. It was a very well structured interview but the panel might make some people feel somewhat uneasy and maybe intimidated.

    Reasons for Declining

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at HSBC Holdings (New York, NY) in October 2011.

    Interview

    Applied to the posting on my college career connection, finished the online application and online testing. Invited to the phone interview within 2 weeks, phone interviews consisted of very typical interview questions. Then invited to the on site interview in NY office in a week. Panel interview are given by three people, two of them are previous graduates from the program. Questions aren't particularly hard, though it is a fairly pressured situation as you have to try to answer to all three of them at the same time and make an impression. Offer came right before Thanksgiving break. Upon receiving the offer they conducted background check and drug test.
