    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at HSBC Holdings (New York, NY) in February 2018.

    Interview

    I took the interview because I was in between Jobs and wanted to polish my interview skills. I have experience in banking. I could tell by the Questions and Info they gave me about their bank that this Company did not have the resources or account options to compete with other banks in the city. It was Small time and and catered to the elderly and old fashioned. I would rather work somewhere that catered to a variety of People of all ages like Chase, TD, or Citibank.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at HSBC Holdings (New York, NY) in July 2018.

    Interview

    The day after I applied for a position, I received an email from a recruiter inviting me for a phone interview. She requested the days and times I'd be available for the phone interview and I responded using multiple days and times. I have waited for a week now and I still have not heard back. I also sent a follow-up email to which there was no reply. Extremely discourteous and discouraging, to say the least.
