Nothing unexpected; typical interview questions. The pay structure was unexpected- HSBC pays everyone now a "discretionary" bonus v a bonus based on production numbers (of course, it really is about x numbers of products sold...).
Make sure base salary is adequate because you can't rely on working hard and producing meaning you will be compensated at bonus time. The whole branch is now forced into regular call nights working until 7:30 at night, so if hours are a concern ask during the interview what your hours will be Less
