    That HSBC integrity question tho
    (Original post by Jker)
    I've done the whole application for HSBC, but seem to be missing this inside joke :/

    Could anyone explain?

    EDIT* Never mind, just remembered it. Was a pretty annoying one to say the least!

    Is this the link for it https://careers.bpglobal.com/TGWEbHo...3&AReq=75039BR or is the spring week a different programme to this? Thank you
    Honestly, I am not sure. However, last year it opened in January.

    After submitting the online application form for HSBC, how long do you have to wait before being invited to sit the online tests?

    How would you answer if you feel as though you have never been in such a situation. I guess thats why its challenging.

    Crap tbh, haven't had time at all to do these application questions and cover letters. Hopefully I can get them done in the coming weeks.

    Tbh you can always make up a scenario, or narrate a scenario in such a way that it answers the question. As long as you can talk about it in the interview.

    Loads of my mates who got HSBC SWs admitted that they made up or heavily exaggerated most of the answers for the questions.

    I've heard that it's £25-30k, sometimes more, sometimes less. For a first year analyst.

    So you earn 75-80k on your first year? Or is that the average overall?

    Most banks have truncated first year to the first six months, so you get a pro rata bonus of £12-16k for those first few months + ofc your base. All-in comp range at the places that pay full bonus in first year is £75-95k
