    Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at HSBC Holdings (London, England (UK)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I had applied online. I then received a call which was basically an over the phone interview.
    I then received an email asking me to complete online testing and to do this quickly as it will move forward my application quickly, so I did.
    I then received an email offering up only one time for an interview.
    I asked for alternatives which they didn't supply (should have been a red flag)
    I then had a face to face interview and was told that they had several weeks before they were even doing first round with anyone else. This annoyed me as they rushed me to complete the online testing and only provided me with one option when clearly other candidates were given other options.
    I have literally never heard a peep after this. The whole process went on for close to 3 months and I didn't hear a thing. Wouldn't recommend as an employer if this is how they treat potential employees.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at HSBC Holdings (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    There is a lack of human contact in the recruitment process at HSBC.

    I've done 4 on-line tests - 2 verbal reasoning, a numerical reasoning, a proofreading. I was informed I'd passed the tests when I emailed. I also inquired whether that meant that I would be interviewed. I didn't get a response and it's been months since passing the tests.

    Interview Questions

    • Awkward, clunky and inconvenient automated recruitment process with a lack of human interaction

      Automated electronic messages - making you log on to their website to read their message each time. If you don't read each of them in time, you could miss out on an on-line test which they give a short time frame to do. All the automated messages emailed to you look the same - rejection, thank you for application, test invitation all read as below:

      You have received a message from HSBC which has been delivered to you via our secure message service as a continued effort from us to protect your personal information. To access your message, please click here, enter your login details then click on the My Messages tab.

      Kind regards,

      HSBC

      Automated telephoning - call are made to your number and no clue is given regarding which job application it is referring to or whether you have an interview. When you call back, there's an automated message saying the voicemail box is full and you are asked to call back another time. Of course when you call back another time, the voicemail box is still full!!   1 Answer
