Application

I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at HSBC Holdings.

Interview

I applied online and got a call back 3 months later out of the blue. There were 3 rounds of interviews - an initial phone screening, an in-person with two hiring reps and final round with Group head. The most rigorous screening occurred in the first in-person interview where I answered a laundry list of questions that were mostly personality/fit questions with some technical banking questions.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at HSBC Holdings in January 2009.

    Interview

    The HR department called me for an interview on a Credit Analyst position they where opening in their Monterrey branch (this was back in January 2009). They had seen my resume in my college's database and thought I was qualified for the job.

    I went to the interview, and to my dismay was interviewed by a very unprofessional woman, who couldn't stay focused (mobile phone use), and made some assumptions just by an accessory I was wearing (immediately asking if I knew the salary offer of the position, which I responded with a yes).

    She asked why I thought I was qualified to get the job, and why I wanted it.

    That's it.

    Very impersonal phone screening interview with heavily accented lady who was extremely difficult to understand. Kept having to ask her to repeat the question, repeatedly to the point where it was embarrassing.

    Interview

    Consisted of several questions from a panel of judges, some personal and technical:

    1. Tell me about yourself.
    2. Why HSBC?
    3. something about how you solved a problem
    4. some technical questions like: if you were to lend money to a business, what factors would you consider?
    5. If a client is very angry, how would you handle the situation?

    Interview lasted more than 30 minutes. The panel then said I would have to wait for 2 weeks to 1 month for a reply if accepted.

    Interview Questions

    • "If a client is very angry, how would you handle the situation?"

      I tried to answer it to my best ability. Just said whatever came to my head at that time.
