    it was a phone interview and took around 30 minutes. asked many basic questions and the whole process is comfortable. The first part of the interview is in English and second part is in Cantonese. But 80% of the interview was in English. I think they just want to check if you can understand the Cantonese.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Hang Seng Bank (Hong Kong (Hong Kong)) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Efficient and straight-to-the-point, condensed interview questions and ability testing. They expect you to have sales skills on top of a pleasant character. It's useful to speak straightforwardly during the role-play section. Sugar-coating too much may hinder clarity and point-delivering. Good idea to stand in the shoes of the customer, then decide which points to deliver; Helpful and understanding HR officers who give advices prior to employment if they are interested in the candidate.
