yesterday my friend went for this interview in cyberjaya due to the job advertisement. after the job assesment, the officer told her she is shortlisted but have to wait for job vacancy in 2 weeks time, if not no need to wait.

my friend went totally baffled, i mean whats the point of having interview but no immediate job vacancy? or my friend got something better than no-you-are-not-qualified-pls-leave ? someone shed the light?

FYI, HSBC Cyberjaya there, got 2 diff job scope to do:-

1. Data Processing (Handles World Tread)
2. Call Centre

So basically, turn over there also quite high. Sometimes your friend might not even need to wait for 2 weeks and they will call her. But look at the bright side. In there, you get to learn a lot of things and they trained you kaw kaw.

And if you friend is really good, they will be given opportunity to go overseas to work. Earn the money from there.

Most likely the position will only be vacant in two weeks time. A person tendered resignation, last day is two weeks time. Hence need to wait for two weeks before hiring.

Either that or they have other candidates to interview, need sometime to access and pick the best candidate. The interviewer didnt manage to phrase it in a much nicer way to say this fact out.

My cousin and a whole hoard of my frens work in HSBC call centre in cyberjaya. They're turnover is high because they hire these fresh grads or ppl on school breaks who r not serious to look for long term employment so thts prolly why they need available candidates if some1 ups n leaves..

They're working hours is on shift basis. Now, their shift base is permanent. Meaning if you happen to work under UK / US /HK then you hv to follow their time and public holidays there. No local holidays for them. Not to mention if you follow their working hours there, time over here would be quite odd.

Other than that, I think benefits and others are quite good. Once in there, learn as much as you can, then once out from there .. other banks or company will definitely wanna hire you for sure.

my friend is real worry. haha. she feel relieved after i relay wat you guys said

Just tell your friend not to worry bout anything if they can actually take that trouble to call up your friend to inform her that she is being shortlisted.

HSBC is a reputable company. They don't play play! Hehe .. good luck to her! ;)

just wondering if HSBC will take foreigner?

05-05-2006, 01:38 PM
HSBC is a *Foreign* bank you know

05-05-2006, 01:58 PM
but as far as i knoe, they cannot hire any notionality other than malaysian ? is not true?

05-05-2006, 02:10 PM
they can...they have indians, english and etc working there...even my company (SCB) also have a lot of foreigner

05-05-2006, 02:42 PM
They can hire foreigners back at their own country. Not in M'sia. Those fella you see working in HSBC (I mean foreigners) they were being sent in from the other country branch. This is just what I think the procedure would be only. Unless, foreigners there they have PR already. :rolleyes: :confused:

05-05-2006, 02:52 PM
what about those foreigners with work permit?

05-05-2006, 02:54 PM
yup..my company helps to apply the work permit on behalf of the foreigners..

05-05-2006, 04:25 PM
If a company wants and insist on gettin' a foreign worker .. of cos the company itself have to do all the work permit so that the person that they wanna hired will be able to come in and work peacefully. I mean go thru proper channel if you intend to work overseas or foreigners wanna come in and work.
