Interview Process
Group Discussion HR Interview
Round 1

Group Discussion

Interview Experience
First cat like test then GD (topics were “corruption in india and anna hazare” and “zero” I am not sure about second one but it was something like this) and then interviews.
Round 2

HR Interview

Interview Experience
In HSBC they asked me a case in which I had to first guess the no of petrol pumps in Kanpur and then to device a criteria for finalizing a location for a petrol pump for my client.
General Tips
It was always finance for me as I had always felt that I had the entrepreneur genes in me and to be good at that one is required to have a good knowledge of finance. To prepare for it I used to read the basic books like liars poker, rich dad poor dad, The Quants and Life of a quant by Hermann hesse. Before 3 months from placement I also read John C Hull which deals with financial instruments. But what I encountered finally was totally different from what I expected. Getting a good finance job was mostly CPI and test driven (and all sorts of other things)and not on your interest in finance or your knowledge of finance. So in the end I prepared for tests and cracked the test for HSBC in which I would be joining soon.

Profile, Clarity in thought, Enthusiasm, Problem solving skills,
Pleasant Personality, etc.
- The way you present the details in your resume can play a crucial
role in getting you a call from HSBC.
- Luckily and thank heavens that CGPA does NOT play a part in
shortlisting for HSBC – Thank God for small mercies!
- The selection procedure for all divisions of HSBC including I-Bank
is similar.
- All shortlisted candidates would have to undergo a psychometric
test, which is a variation of Conjoint Analysis for getting to know
your work preferences!
Interview Tips
- Prepare for a usual general interview questions like Why HSBC, Why
Banking, Run me through the resume, etc.?
- Be prepared with one area of interest in Banking – Most people here
had said corporate banking and something specific in that – I had
said Dividend Policy.
- Be extremely thorough with all sorts of possible questions on your
Resume – I was asked questions on BPO!
