    I worked at HBOS full-time

    Pros

    Good company. Good benefits. Good people to work with and spend time with both on the job and after work.

    Cons

    Beauracratic. Management is good but too many hoops to jump through to get anything done. Overall OK corporate culture.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at HBOS in May 2010.

    Interview

    Applied online and did a multiple answer personality test. Vaguley ok, contradictory but that's by design.
    Was then invited to do a numbers test online, mostly averages and %, number handling test on a time limit.
    After that I was invited for a 1 to 1 interview and the local branch which took about 1h 20min
