    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at HSBC Holdings (Vancouver, BC (Canada)) in November 2016.

    Interview

    The first round was a simple phone call. Just had to show that you are able to think in an analytical manner through past experience.

    The second and final round was a simple case study (think SWOT, competitive advantage, etc.)
    You get about an hour to complete it, and then 15 min. to present it your findings.

    The interviewers were casual, and asked pretty simple questions. Mostly basic behavioural and situational questions.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at HSBC Holdings (Vancouver, BC (Canada)) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Very straightforward process. Applied through company website and completed personal assessment. Within a couple of days was contacted by HSBC for a phone interview. The phone interview contained some administrative questions (availability, location, etc.) and the remainder of the interview consisted of behavioural questions and questions about my work experience. After roughly one day I was contacted for an interview in the branch. This interview was very casual and contained mostly behavioural questions.

    The interview was tailored around sales and achieving sales goals so be comfortable in describing your sales approach and how you will be successful.

    Interview Questions

    • What motivates you and how do you define success?
      how would you build a relationship with your coworkers at a new job?
      Tell us of a time you had trouble communicating something effectively?
      How would you deal with an upset customer?
      Tell us of a time you were unable to reach sales targets and how did you overcome this?
