    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at HSBC Holdings.

    Interview

    One phone interview and two on-site interviews. First had a call with an internal recruiter; then met with the hiring manager and team members; lastly met with direct manager's manager. The entire process is concise but well-organized. The interviewers seemed to be well-prepared. Some of the questions were difficult but I did not take them personally. Confidence and some sense of humor would definitely help. Do your homework!

    Interview Questions

    • Typical behavioral questions plus questions about the specific areas applied for. -Strengths and weaknesses -How to work with difficult people -What would your current manager say about you -Why are you interested in this position, HSBC and this industry? etc.   Answer Question
