    Interview

    Firstly have a video interview and then have a technical video interview and if you passed this stage, you will get to the super day. The first behavioral interview is very basic. Unlimited practice Qs and go to the actual Q.

    Interview Questions

    • The technical Qs are a little more intuitive. Maybe is because I have not been that level yet. But the questions are like give you an actual profile and ask you how to manage them by doing multiple choices.   Answer Question

    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.

    Relationship Banker Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at HSBC Holdings (Los Angeles, CA) in February 2018.

    Interview

    Awful interview experience. Looks like they outsource the hiring team to another company and they have really bad connections between the hiring specialist and the actual hiring manager. I was contacted by a hiring specialist and scheduled for a face to face interview with a local branch. They told me the branch manager will contact me. But I wait for a month and no one contacted me. I asked the hiring specialist and she told me to wait. I called the branch and the person pick up the phone call always say the manager is busy. And after all the waiting, I got a decline letter. What a ridiculous company! They told me I'm gonna have an interview and then they rejected me for no reason??? I guess that why this company's business is so poor in US, you're not even professional yourself, not to say being professional to your client.(In fact, the branch that I should have interviewed has a low yelp score of 1 or 2). I wrote a letter politely asking the hiring specialist why this happened and got no answer. So my advice is not to have any connections with is company, as a employee or as a customer.
