Hsbc advance Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
HSBC Holdings plc is a British multinational investment bank and financial services holding company. It was the 6th largest bank in the world by 2020, and the largest in Europe, with total assets of US$2.715 trillion (as of August 2020). HSBC traces its origin to a hong in British Hong Kong and its present form was established in London by the Hongkong and Shanghai Banking Corporation to act as a new group holding company in 1991; its name derives from that company's initials. The Hongkong and Shanghai Banking Corporation opened branches in Shanghai in 1865 and was first formally incorporated in 1866.
A former employee said this in a review: " Working at HSBC means a lot of work pressure, excessive hours, sometimes not respecting meal times and wages are unfair to the work that is excessive".

Cashier (Current Employee) says"Hsbc are a joke to work for. So much pressure to meet targets that aren’t targets, they claim to have staff wellbeing at their heart but they do not care really all they care about is the customer and customer satisfaction. Not one bit of decency is shown towards the staff who are ridiculously stressed and run down due to ever growing work load. Giving the current circumstances with Covid-19 there is no thought given to their staff or their families or children.. there has been no clear guidelines and still expected to carry on as normal. A staff member was sent home one day due to being in contact with someone with suspected symptoms, rang HR and advised to self isolate... only to then get a phone call saying if they have no symptoms to go back to work the next working day! They are not taking this seriously at all and just shows how much they really dont care They don’t care about individual circumstances such as not having any childcare at all during this situation due to family members being high risk, yet will not accommodate the time off!!"
Personal Banker (Former Employee) says"Tus jefes determinan el bono sin importar el resultado bueno o malo"

Relationship Banker (Former Employee) says"Even upon starting with the company the lies begin. The role you apply for and agree to is nothing like what the job entails once you start. The hours and location you agreed to work can change on a seconds notice as well. The company technology seems trapped in the 1980’s, and the internal support you need to help customers is almost non existent."
Credit Controller (Former Employee) says"For a person of colour the environment could be unwelcoming The managers connived to heap faults just to get rid of you because of your skin is shocking considering the reputation of the bank as a global brand. They have couple of very unhelpful coaches whose jobs are just to see you fail Worst human treatment i have ever received in a work place.nonenone"
Senior Program Manager (Current Employee) says"Working a "professional day", apparently means 12 to 15 hours for no more pay or benefits. There are hundreds of department managers, where they are the only person in the department. Way too many overlapping jobs. Dozens of people doing the same job in different departments. No wonder they're losing so much money.Some of the people are really nice, just not the peolle on managementReally long hours (4am conference calls with London), then working to 9pm. If you're not in the inner circle you're never going anywhere."
Sales Assistant (Former Employee) says"Avoid at all costs if you wish to have your sanity!!!!! Awful management throughout. Bad morale and quite frankly an awful place to work. Their apparently not allowed to “sell” customers anything but that’s all their about. Lying to customers to get their sale up"

peter goodwin says"Been on the phone for over 3 hours now just trying to activate my online banking facility after the old one expired. First guy couldnt hear what I was saying so keyed in the security question wrongly then cut me off. Got through again after waiting 30 minutes and was immediatley cut off. Got through again after another 30 minutes only to be told the acount was locked !!! so I would have to speak to customer services. They put me through ...im still waiting listening to moronic music. It is now nearly 6pm and getting nowhere after nearly 3 hours. Crazy HSBC how you treat your corporate customers with such contempt."
Mark McCormack says"There are lots of issues with the customer service at HSBC UK. Here are some examples from today: - the website says to check branch finder for branch opening times due to covid-19. branch finder says this particular branch is open 10-4pm. i get there and it turns out all branches are only open 10-2pm. how can you have such out of date website info right now? - the mobile app is glitchy, frequently hangs, forgets finger print ID and frequently needs setting up again - call centre waiting times (to complain about the above) are ridiculous. - the mortgage application portal is very confusing, very outdated"
Daryl Marcus says"It took from June till end of August to open the account. Then when the account was open the welcome pack and what to do next didn't come. Was on the phone for 2.5 hours for then to put the phone down. So had to ring again. I know there is a pandemic. But people are working from home and the pandemic started a while back now. You should of bounced back by now. ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE"
