    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at HSBC Holdings (New York, NY (US)) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Applied in the fall, heard back in the spring. Had a first round interview over the phone with 2 people which went well. Found out I got a final round interview by the end of the day, which would be held the following week. The final round lasted 3 hours and consisted of 6 back to back interviews with increasingly senior team members. Everyone was extremely nice and the interviews were largely motivational - no technicals. The last round was obviously a 'negative' interview, but the person was nice despite the more pointed questions. I thought it went well and that I was a good fit, but I never heard back from HR.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at HSBC Holdings (London, England) in September 2020.

    Interview

    I only got through to the online assessment. I got this through the spring insight program the year before.
    The online assessment compromised three sections: The first was about soft-skills such as time management etc. The second was more technical and the third was about personality and attitude.
    Each section had some slider/multiple choice questions, a short written question and a longer question which required a video reply. You only had one chance to record your video.

    Interview Questions

    • In the first section I was given some tasks and asked to fit them into an already busy week schedule provided.
      In the second I was asked to advise a company on a merger.
      In the third I was asked how I would approach working as a team with members from different sections in the bank.   1 Answer
