    Asked a HSBC recruiter on campus why they don't do numerical tests...

    "Because maths test show they don't have the best people skills"

    Also, HSBC is not just situation judgment, you also do an inductive reasoning test. Only if you pass the bench marks will they then look at your 4x 250 word questions...

    There's often a lot of downtime in banking, especially in the first half of the day.

    well what else can we do if we're waiting for them to give comments on the work. makes absolutely no difference to them, aslong as we do the work we're told in time and of good quality.

    Associates are just analysts with slightly more accountability. I guess it depends on the team's culture but they won't care if you're not screwing them over somehow.

    If a senior banker walks by then you might wanna at least pretend that you're working...
