    Hey, has anyone applied for the HSBC Work Experience Programme for summer 2017?

    I have completed all the online stuff, including the online assessment. They have emailed me saying that I should expect to hear back in early January for further updates (ie. Have I made the telephone interview stage).

    I was wondering, has anyone heard any response? Since it's now not 'early January'...

    I'm stressed that I won't get the placement which leaves me struggling to find work experience for summer as it will be too late.

    Yeah they got around to it pretty quickly.
    I submitted the online application on the 8th and they replied asking me to do the online assessment on the 13th and now I've got a telephone interview on 23rd.
    Maybe you should call them up or send an e-mail to HR that covers work experience because I really doubt that you failed the online assessment.
    Good Luck

    Hey,

    Yeah I applied on the day it opened, did the online assessment in early December, just got the telephone interview invite a few days ago and booked for the interview for the 25th of January! And for me, it showed up on their online application portal thing, like it says Assessment Completed and then changed to Online Assessment Passed for me, and also showed me how I did on it, theres a few categories like bad fit, ok fit, good fit, and excellent fit, I got OK but I honestly don't think HSBC overly care much about this. Good luck!

    Anyone applied to the London region?

    Bro you know you're increasing the total number of applicants (hence the number of people you're competing against) by posting stuff like this, right?

    Yeah, judging from their 'online assessment' it can't be that hard.

    Lol my cousin did commercial last year, he literally just served as a Chaucer type kinda guy doing customer service for no pay
    I'd rather just get a part time job, you do the same stuff but you get paid

    It's just that I feel that they're scamming people in a way because people associate it with investment banking and therefore apply to it thinking it's going to help towards that, but they instead work you hard doing boring work for free
