Business Analyst Interview

Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at HSBC Holdings (New York, NY) in January 2008.

Interview

I was initially contacted by a staffing agency recruiter who directly sent my resume to the hiring manager of HSBC Securities. I was brought in for an interview with the manager and some of the team, and then I was given a phone interview by an HR Coordinator

Interview Questions

  • Why do you want to work for this company or in this specific role   1 Answer
  • I see your background thus far has been engaged in consulting projects, why did you undertake so many and why do you now want a permanent role? (in my case I had undertaken three temp or project-based assignments before deciding to focus on procuring a full-time permanent role)   1 Answer

Negotiation

I wasn't able to negotiate. In considering the offer, I would recommend you ask a lot of questions about the role, about recent projects that the group has undertaken, and the growth prospects in the role.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at HSBC Holdings.

    Interview

    The interview question were standard and the interview lasted about an hour. There were 2 interviews and both had a group interviewing. They asked standard questions and at times the team leader seemed to be in a hurry to end the interview. The vetting process was extremely long. You also have to be checked by the local police department, which is standard, along with your references. All employees are rated by their level of risk starting. Would I apply for a job at HSBC again? No! I was disappointed after working their less than 3 years due to management's lack of real committment to employee welfare.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at HSBC Holdings (Pune (India)) in September 2010.

    Interview

    I had an initial knowledge of HSBC GLT. The interview process was planned and systematic. I had to wait a bit for the 2nd round (Technical interview), but it went well. Questions were only from my previous work experience. Then it followed with an HR round. I had to wait for an week for the offer, as they had earlier intimated. I got the hard copy within days after that. I can recall Celestine Fernandes, HR, with whom my interaction was very delightful. I had my doubts and he cleared them in no time. Look forward to join and have a great career with HSBC GLT :)

    Interview Questions

    • Basic Java questions, SLDC, role of every phase of SDLC, how accquainted i was with every phase, my previous project experience, etc   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Compared to 2-3 years before, HSBC GLT is offering a bit less right now (Oct '10). I knew this, and it helped me to get along with what i was being offered. I was satisfied, coz i was offered a promotion other than a substantial hike. All in all, it was a good experience.
