Anonymous Interview Candidate
Hong Kong (Hong Kong)

I applied online - interviewed at HSBC - Hongkong in March 2014.

Interview Details There are basically two parts of the hiring process, the online aptitude test and the interviews. For the online assessment test, it's just some normal verbal reasoning and numerical questions. For the interview, the first round was a phone interview with the HR, which asked some behavioral questions. For the interview with line manager, it's more about talking about the background and what stated in the resume.

Interview Question – Most of the questions are just some normal questions you could expect in an interview   Answer Question
