    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at HSBC Holdings (Potomac, MD) in June 2017.

    Interview

    The hiring process was very strange. I had assessment, 2 phone interviews, 2 in person interview. The interviewers were not discussed and communicated to each other at all. Each of them seeing you as never know anything before, so you need to respond the same questions and answer the same. I think even though I went through so long process, their decision was still careless and not considered.
