General - Interview Mumbai - 26 October 2007


Hi friends i m ROHAN. i apeared for the HSBC GLTi aptitude on 26th oct. 2007. the criteria was 60% agg. in 10th 12th and till ur current BE sem. it was the easiest aptitude i ever took in my life ! believe me guys i didnt prepare a single topic for aptitude but i found it damn easy and i cleared it.

there were four sections,
1.English(The easiest section-fill in the blanks of prepositions,readin compre. was also too easy
2.Analytical reasoning.
 3.Verbal reasoning.
 4.Technical aptitude.(C,C++,Data Structure and analysis of algorithms).

Total 90 Questiones were there almost 1Hr 30 mins time. No sectional cut off.No negative marking for each section they used to give 20-30 mins (varied depending on sections). aptitude was on paper. but then too they will give 20 mins only for every section coz after every 20 mins they used to take the previous sections Q paper back. its easy but to be on the better side u should study for technical atleast. i cleared apti and went for technical intrview.

my interviewer was a very cool guy,he was wearing jeans and T-shirt Long hair Like MS dhoni.
me : May i come in sir.(u should always ask !)
sir :  Yes please.
he told me to sit

me :Answered this qstn for almost 5-7 mins.spoke many many things about me !This is the questn where u can impress any of the interviewers in the world.Just be urself.DOnt show him that u r nervous.
rather make that interview a discussion sort of thing.
sir :Whats ur BE project.
me:explained everything about my project.
sir :asked me qstns on C,C++(very simple).
(never mention any programming language by urself they will ask u deep qstns one of my frnd said"I know java" and he was screwed in java and got rejected!)
me :answered every qstn.
sir :So ROHAN ur project is in Database right?(And he started asking qstns from SQL,DBMS.)

General - Interview - 27 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
HR-why HSBC??
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??
Ray-Yep..asked one.
HR-OKay..Ray Thankyou.
Ray-My pleasure...

This is how it went and after 2 hrs the result was declared and name was actually there..and I was so happy... The pay package which dey offered was  hmmm... 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.
