    In one of our articles about telephone interviews over on Milkround, there's actually some info from HSBC specifically about their telephone interviews..

    HSBC: after the online assessment, you may get a values-based telephone interview of around 45 minutes. This assesses you against three important criteria the bank is looking for: being Open (ie honest, fair and direct), Connected (able to build and sustain relationships with others), and Dependable.

    On this basis, I would recommend preparing a few examples that demonstrate those three competencies - be sure to use the STAR technique when preparing your answers.

    Hope that helps - best of luck!
