    Interview

    Immediate response after application, quick process until job simulation. Waited two months to hear I was rejected. Overall, not a terrible process. Some parts were informative but there was no phone interview or video interview, just pre-recorded video responses.

    Senior Vice President Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at HSBC Holdings.

    Interview

    They do not hire external candidates I think for such senior level roles and interview them just to check a box. The interview process is quick and seems easy and does not delve deep enough, just to show that they are not serious. I would not apply here especially for senior level roles. I was told that they ended up hiring a London candidate who wanted to relocate to NYC. So again, a check in the box at your expense.

    Interview Questions

    • How do you fit into this role. (a red flag question at such a senior level - gives away the fact that they are just not serious about you).   Answer Question

    Middle Office Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at HSBC Holdings.

    Interview

    I was contacted by HR manager for a scheduled and confirmed phone interview. However, the HR manager was "ghosted" on the call schedule. After missing call schedule, the HR manager did not contact me for rescheduling call or anything. So I sent out couple emails to the HR manager for my rescheduling call but I never heard back since then. First of all It is extremely unprofessional for HR manager missing out a scheduled and confirmed phone interview. Also it is very rude and disrespect to the candidate that the HR manager did not get back to the candidate whether they wish to continue the process or not. With such attitude and practice by the HR who is representing to the company, candidate can judge how professional HSBC can be.
