    Interview Details

    I applied on the company website and had a phone interview. The interview was pretty standard. There were a lot of behavioural questions and a few technical questions. Went through your resume, introduce yourself, teamwork experience, strengths and weaknesses, etc. The whole process took around three to four weeks. Just be well-prepared.

    Started with numerical and reasoning tests, then came an interview with HR which covered questions about what HSBC does and why you want to work for HSBC. Finally there was an interview with relatively senior management in the department, which had some overlap with the questions asked by HR, and going through your resume in greater detail.
