Average Interview

Application

I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at HSBC Holdings.

Interview

Contacted by consultancy, had telephonic discussion based on past experience (not very tough), followed by face to face discussion and Situation Judgement test (which was passed as per HSBC carrier site) in May 2016 for Pune location.
I was advised to wait for further communication for HR discussion (final round)
There was no communication from the organisation / consultancy till July end . In August 2016, status of Situation Judgement test changed to unsuccessful and position was moved to Hyderabad.
Request all applicants to be Careful!!!!

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at HSBC Holdings (Pune (India)) in January 2016.

    Interview

    I got interview invite email from HR recruiter. The process took the whole day(9 AM to 9PM).I got interviewed in January 2016.There were total 5 rounds.1.Written(Apti+logic reasoning+analytical+English+Core Java+J2EE+J2EE Design patterns+DTD+SVN)2.SJT(It's online test which was just formality.)
    3.Technical F2F round 4.Project round 5.HR.I had cleared all rounds and filled employment form and submitted necessary docs.The HR recruiter-Celestine Fernandes-he told me he would release the offer in next week .When I tried to call him about offer,he never picked my phone.The interview process is slow and pathetic.The written exam designed for SSE role more concentrates on English and maths part instead of what type of work candidate has done in the past.They take freshers interviews with experienced guys and it becomes total mess.They hire the candidates especially who are good at English(from English Medium school guys) and who can not literally know how to start
    WebSphere Server.The HR recruiters are very lazy,rude and arrogant.Please do not attend the HSBC interview.Even if you get selected,do not trust them and not be in hope that they will hire you.Better join other companies.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at HSBC Holdings (Pune (India)) in September 2015.

    Interview

    The interview arrangement was very good but the interviewer was equally bad. He was too rude and extremely judgemental to understand candidate's point of view. A very bad experience. Did not expect such behaviour on part of an experience professional
