Typical work day at HSBC, requires to be able to work in a team or by yourself. When I started with HSBC I had no banking experience or knowledge of the banking industry, when I left I with alot of knowledge and experience. HSBC encourages their eimployees to learn everything you can. Many opportunities to move up in the organization. HSBC believes in Job Work/Life Balance, they expect you to work hard and do your properly. Management is always open and willing to listen to any concerns that their empoyees may have. My experience is everyone is great to work with.
Enjoyed learning and working with the teams located worldwide

Assistant Branch Manager (Current Employee) – Saule Ste Marie – 24 November 2016
As the Assistant Branch Manager I was in charge of different aspects of HSBC. I did the scheduling for the front line staff, branch control of cash. I did the cash orders and shipments. the montly , quarterly and annual audits of the branch also were my responsibilities. Our Branch Manager left in September and I have been in the acting role now as Branch Manager until the closure of our branch in February 2017. I am organized, respect my co-workers and colleagues and teamwork is a huge part of the day.
being a remote branch we do not have alot of support from higher up
Not a top 50 employer. Not a diversified company. Most men help upper management positions. I was laid off when I was 7 months pregnant after working there for a little more than 8 years so my opinion isn't good.
