Application

I applied online. I interviewed at HSBC Holdings.

Interview

Completed their online assessment and then received their online job simulation via hirevue, the job simulation basically is the same thing with the online assesement, the only difference is that for some questions you don't get to choose from some answers, but you will need to answer it on camera by yourself, such as how do you deal with clients when its against the bank's regulation rules.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at HSBC Holdings (San Francisco, CA (US)) in March 2015.

    Interview

    It was very straightforward. I applied online through the HSBC website, and was contacted by an HR manager 2 weeks later. I went through the first round by phone call. The phone call interview was pretty simple, basically just a screening. The second round was in front of a panel of bankers. Mostly conversational, not very technical. The second round interview was harder than the first because you have to answer to four people, not one. They want motivated, earnest individuals who are eager to learn and do hard work.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at HSBC Holdings.

    Interview

    I applied online. I heard back within a few days with an invitation to complete the online Numerical Reasoning Test. I went through the practice questions they attached, and they were very easy. And so, I was not nervous for the real test. However, I was unable to answer a lot during the actual test. I felt that there was a large disconnect between the practice questions they provided and the real test. Good luck to all future test-takers.

    Interview

    online application --> apt test --> job simulation (failed to go onwards)
    Job simulation was really complicated. I have no idea what would a model answer be like... Probably cause I did not prepare enough?
