    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at HSBC Holdings (Sydney) in January 2014.

    Interview

    Interview was in a relaxed environment with equally pleasant and easy-going Hiring managers. Discussed previous local experiences in detail to judge work ethics and technical knowledge.
    Asked couple of behavioural questions to identify how well the candidate fit in their office culture.
    Finished off the interview by discussing one specific role and how I can contribute to the new organisation.
