    There was very little growth opportunities working for a large already established company like hsbc

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at HSBC Holdings (Prospect Heights, IL) in December 2009.

    Interview

    Faxed a resume to CP and was called the same day for a phone interview. I was asked to come to a panel interview later in the week. I interviewed with a panel of 6. Basic questions about what I like to do when I'm not working and some technical questions about my current job.
