Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at HSBC Holdings.

Interview

The interview question were standard and the interview lasted about an hour. There were 2 interviews and both had a group interviewing. They asked standard questions and at times the team leader seemed to be in a hurry to end the interview. The vetting process was extremely long. You also have to be checked by the local police department, which is standard, along with your references. All employees are rated by their level of risk starting. Would I apply for a job at HSBC again? No! I was disappointed after working their less than 3 years due to management's lack of real committment to employee welfare.

Interview Questions

  • 1. What was your last project? 2. Can you work with others ? 3. How good are your programming skills?   1 Answer

    Anonymous Employee in London, England

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at HSBC Holdings (London, England).

    Interview

    Interview was easy but the HR is extremely inefficient and taking their own sweet time to get things done. They will just keep you hanging without letting you know what the next step, start date and all other necessary information after getting an offer. Sent multiple of repetitive emails by different HR personnel to ask for documents which were already provided long ago. Regreted accepting the offer because I won't want to be in the kind of work culture and environment that the HR portrayed.
