    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at HSBC Holdings (Singapore (Singapore)) in February 2020.

    Interview

    Given the current COVID 19 situation. It takes the form of an online pre-recorded interview followed by a online "face to face" interview.

    The prerecorded interview was easy to use, but some may find it a little draggy.

    The face to face interview was good and the interviewer was friendly and accommodating, however, there was some technology issues in regards to the latency. The questions may be a little tricky for a student!

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at HSBC Holdings (Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia)) in February 2020.

    Interview

    Starts with assessment then immersive assessment. Both was pretty hard for me kind of critical thinking where they will give you situations and you answer based on that. Reply emails, record videos, calculations, present things and select the best situation answer. All the best for you.

    Multiple stages, starting with an aptitude test, both numerical and logical. Next stage was a situational judgment test, being presented by multiple scenarios and assessing the response that feels correct. Afterwards was a video interview, recording answers to questions and doing a short task (writing a reply to an email from a line manager). The final stage was an assessment centre, meeting with other candidates and working alongside them

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at HSBC Holdings (Birmingham, England) in February 2019.

    Interview

    Really good interview process, everyone was super friendly and welcoming. We started off being split into groups and doing a presentation, then moved onto a technical exercise, then an individual presentation, and then finally a one-on-one interview that lasted approx. one hour. The whole assessment centre was probably three hours in total. Positive experience as a whole, not that difficult, but make sure you prepare.
