    Coverage Group Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at HSBC Holdings (New York, NY) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was great. The recruiter was really helpful and she emailed me about scheduling my interview on a different day as I couldn't make it to the SuperDay. However, after the interview they didn't follow up on me. i reached out to ask for a confirmation about their decision how ever they never responded to my two emails, which i think is extremely unprofessional on their behalf.

    My interview was straightforward and direct and conducted in a very professional manner. I didn't feel drilled on any point and was allotted plenty of time for my own questions and the dialogue that they created. I felt I got complete and thoughtful responses and was happy that I'd thought through what I wanted to know in advance.
