HSBC Placement Paper : General - Interview - 27 October 2007
HSBC INTERVIEW ON 27th OCTOBER 2007
Hi Friends, I went to the interview which was an off campus one.If im not wrong they were around 2k students who gave the Interview out of which 30 got selected.
This is how the whole selection procedure was
1) Aptitude+Technical written test
2) Technical Interview
3) H.R Interview
The Aptitude comprised of Verbal reasoning, Quants, Analytical Reasoning.The technical had C&C++ and DBMS. In verbal they had Fill in the blanks,Rcs and Give the closest meaning. Verbal was quite easy though the reading passages were a bit tuff but still not that hard either.
For Quants a bit of brushing of basics is really going to help, they asked questions like two trains moving in each direction etc. The analytical reasoning was the easiest of all. In Technical they concentrated more on the programs of C&C++ like a program and then depending on that the errors which can pop up while execution. Out of 2000 students 250 cleared the Apptitude.
Then came the technical interview,dis is how it went
1)Tell me something about Yourself?
2)What is the difference between C nd C++?
3)Why is C++ called the oops Language?
Oops..Dont Know..told about encapsulation,abstratction etc...she looked quite satisfied.
and then came the programs...
4)given a set of 10 numbers write a program which is going to choose numbers which only end with 3(not 6,9) and then add them.then Select numbers which start wid 9 and add them after that subtract the sum of both...Took a bit of time but wrote.She was happy.
5)Given a set of numbers wap so as to pick a number which is a perfect square.
6)Wap for a palyndrome( Eg DAD)
7)WAP to take a number from the user (any digits) seperate the digits and add the squares of the digits.
8)WAP on Bubble sort using Pointes.
well those were the programs though they were easy it took a bit of pain to re call the logic of each nd every program.
She didnt asked a thing on DBMS.
After around 4 hrs the technical results were declared and I got through then came HR interview,nd dis is how that went
HR-Sorry for making you wait this long( The time was 8 30 pm-The actual time was 9 AM of day 2)
Ray- No,probs sir.
HR-ok,tell me something about ur profile
HR-OK Good..Now what are your career Goals and how are you planning to achieve them
HR-Stress a bit more on your skills
Ray-Comm skills,Team player and PROBLEM SOLVING ABILITY
HR-what do u mean by problem solving ability(PSA)?
HR-Give one example where in ur PSA was utilised
Ray-made one and said..lol
HR-What you know abt HSBC??
Ray-HSBC-Hong Kong Shanghai Banking Co-operation.
It has its branches in 82 countries.
It work in various domains like Data warehousing,Mainframes etc.
It is an Industry in Itself
HR-You got any questions for me??
This is how it went and after 2 hrs the result was declared and BOY..my name was actually there..and I was so happy... The pay package which dey offered was hmmm... well..am not suppose to say that.
My advice to all is They are concentrating more on your comm skills, so be sure that in both ur HR nd TEch interview ur FLUENT dont stammer aruond and make sure what ur talking makes sense because specially in HR there was lot of Cross questioning.
HSBC doesnt have any BOND process so with the pay package and the scope which it has it definelty one of the best companies around to work for.
HSBC Placement Paper : Whole Testpaper Bhilai Institute of Technology, Durg - 5 April 2007
HSBC PAPER ON 5th APRIL
as not many papers of hsbc glti is there on dis site.....so may be my experience can be a gud help for u guys...
the recruitment happened in our clg campus on 5th april 2007....more n 200 students of two clg appeared....
criteria is the same as other companies 60+ % in both 10th 12th and eng(strictly)...
written xam of hsbc is probably the easiest in comparison of other firms.....
the test consists 4 sections:-
1.English-xtremely easy for jst an ang student
b) fill in the blanks with similar meaning-
c) fill in the blank using article
d) two RC passages-friends u wont get such an easy passage in any other exam.so dont neglect it u can solve it easily(believe me)
2 Analytical reasoning: is i will say was a mixed bag for me,but u can easily solve reqired no. of questions
a) a pussle with 5 related questions....
b) other puzzle which was a bit confusin(so i was in real difficulty solvin both puzzles)
c) data sufficiency(easy as usual)
d) a decimal to binary conversion,u shud be aquainted with this type of question(asked in many other companies paper)
3) Verbal reasoning:-
a)conditions were given like
mark 1 if 1st and 2nd is the same
mark 2 if 1st and 3rd is the same
mark 3 if 2nd and 3rd is same
mark 4 if none of these
1234 1237 1234
b) sorry boss cant remember but was the easiest section
4) Techinical based on c and ds
dis is a bit tough for non-it guys bt even for it/cs the code snippets r real mind teaser.bt do c all sorting methods in ds
they ask questions from sorting......so u can easily do it and i guess 50% is the cutoff as i solved 12 outof 20 and was sure only in 10q.
so friends the time for written exam is 1hr 40 min which is hell lot of time.
out of 230 120 students cleared written den comes technical round as they say but they can also ask u complete hr questions:-
hr-tell abt urself?
me:-told blah blah,den i said i m man with values(was interrupted)
hr- he asked me wat do i mean by values?
me-told(hr seemed impressed........)
hr-tell me a situation when u found urself in trouble and how u came out of it?
me:-told with some real life example....(hr said gooooooood)
hr-do u feel u need to improve urself?
me-told yes and justified.
hr-okay tell me about ur hobbies??????
hr-okay wat r ur favourite subjects?
hr-tell me about foreign key and primary key?
hr-gave me two table to find out primary and foreign key?
me-solved(again he told good)
hr-tell me about normalization?
hr-can we say a table in 3nf is completely normalized?
me-told no,as bcnf came into existence after 3nf just to remove trivial fd in a table already in 3nf.....
hr-can a primary key has duplicate values?
me-told no(distinct constraint)
hr-wat abt foreign key???????
me-dis was the first answer which i told wrong(do concentrate on these small things)
hr-okay pranay do u have any questions?
me-i asked three questions?
he-u can wait outside?
me-handshaked and told it was nice talking to him....
then after five minutes i was told to leave.......AND FRIENDS I WAS NOT SELECTED.....
i was never nervous in entire interview and told all answers confidently even he complimented abt my tech knowledge
apart from last q where i fumbled(as dat question was asked later).....bt i did a blunder as i told wrong name of the bank
(told hdbc instead of hsbc and when he told me i again told it as hdfc) the first time it was slip of tongue but once the tension build up i lost my mind(hehe..it first ever interview i faced)...bt dear friend ur one wrong answer can change ur whole impression so don do dis stupidity............
then it,s the hr round:-
same boring hr questions but do prepare well.....and be fluent in ur comm skill
one thing is that it,s 99% luck to get a job......if once day is urs u can make it without knowing anything.....(hehe don rely on dis completely)
finaly 29 was selected from my clg and 9 from the odr one.....
so do prepare well and wish for me dat i also get placed some where....
