    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at HSBC Holdings.

    Interview

    I applied online and got a call back 3 months later out of the blue. There were 3 rounds of interviews - an initial phone screening, an in-person with two hiring reps and final round with Group head. The most rigorous screening occurred in the first in-person interview where I answered a laundry list of questions that were mostly personality/fit questions with some technical banking questions.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at HSBC Holdings in January 2009.

    Interview

    The HR department called me for an interview on a Credit Analyst position they where opening in their Monterrey branch (this was back in January 2009). They had seen my resume in my college's database and thought I was qualified for the job.

    I went to the interview, and to my dismay was interviewed by a very unprofessional woman, who couldn't stay focused (mobile phone use), and made some assumptions just by an accessory I was wearing (immediately asking if I knew the salary offer of the position, which I responded with a yes).

    She asked why I thought I was qualified to get the job, and why I wanted it.

    That's it.

    Interview

    The interviewers made me feel extremely comfortable. I got stuck with a question but instead of dismissing me, they helped me remembering the answer. They guided me in a way without revealing the final answer and letting me rack my own brains.

    Interview

    They are very calm. Like every other interviewer they would ask you about yourself. At one point of time one of them laughed saying something which they knew was a lie which is unprofessional and hurtful to the candidate.
