    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at HSBC Holdings in September 2017.

    Interview

    It was a 2day process. First there was the aptitude test (easy) containing 59 questions from- reasoning, data interpretation, retail banking & econometrics. 151 people applied, out of which 77 people qualified this round & was called in for the second round the next day. There they again shortlisted 60 students based on the weighted average of marks of all exams (starting from 10th std) & apti score.
    These 60 people were then divided into 4 groups of 15 students each. The GD topics were very easy- GST, Demonetization, Population-bane or boon etc. From each group 6-7 people were selected for the technical PI round. The 27 people who were selected had to undergo a rigorous interview process. Everything was asked from banking to econometrics to excel to guesstimate to logical conclusion to puzzles. From these 27 people ultimately the best 7 were offered the offer letters.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at HSBC Holdings (London, England (UK)) in February 2017.

    Interview

    There was great communication. No phone interview just a call to invite me for a face to face. They held the meeting close to me even though the job was in a different city. It was a mix of technical questions (SQL), problem solving and personal questions.

    Interview

    Slow and unresponsive from HR at times. Interview is easier than expected - perhaps the hiring manager is also a new hire and that's why. But the JD does not align with the actual role they are hiring for.
