    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at HSBC Holdings (Paris (France)) in February-2018.

    Interview

    Test à faire chez soi
    Puis entretien téléphonique avec la RH
    Panel interview (5 min de préparation et 5 min de présentation):
    - une présentation de groupe: choisir un theme et prendre parti
    - client meeting: conseiller un client sur un marché particulier
    - senior meeting: donner son avis sur un investissement particulier à un senior
    - based competency interview

    L'expérience des entretiens en elle-même a été positive, mais la gestion post-entretien est catastrophique. Aucune réponse (même négative), deux mois après l'entretien; la RH filtre les appels et ne répond pas aux mails... Très dommage!
