    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at HSBC Holdings (Mumbai) in November 2011.

    Interview

    Two rounds of interview one with the reporting manager, and then with country head for the function. Mainly skills-based questions were asked based on the CV submitted.

    Negotiation

    1 Month. Accepting lower salary is not recommended. Hikes after one joins a support function are unsubstantial.
