    Personal Banker Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Vancouver, BC (Canada)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at HSBC Holdings (Vancouver, BC (Canada)) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Very straightforward process. Applied through company website and completed personal assessment. Within a couple of days was contacted by HSBC for a phone interview. The phone interview contained some administrative questions (availability, location, etc.) and the remainder of the interview consisted of behavioural questions and questions about my work experience. After roughly one day I was contacted for an interview in the branch. This interview was very casual and contained mostly behavioural questions.

    The interview was tailored around sales and achieving sales goals so be comfortable in describing your sales approach and how you will be successful.

    Interview Questions

    • What motivates you and how do you define success?
      how would you build a relationship with your coworkers at a new job?
      Tell us of a time you had trouble communicating something effectively?
      How would you deal with an upset customer?
      Tell us of a time you were unable to reach sales targets and how did you overcome this?

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at HSBC Holdings (Winnipeg, MB (Canada)) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Greeted by assistant manager of the branch, questions are classic, the atmosphere is relaxed, and it did not take long time. You can ask few question about the future of this position, like the working environment and schedule and location. But you can not find out the interviewer's real emotion, you have to wait for the HR call.

    I am still waiting for my results actually
