    Director Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at National Australia Bank (New York, NY) in October 2011.

    Interview

    Pretty standard although the people in Sydney took a long time to get the paperwork going. New york is defenitely an outpost and not critical to the overall strategy. The whole process took close to three months. As usual the local HR people are pretty useless.

    Interview Questions

    • Was all pretty standard. Nothing unusual. They didn't know what they were doing so didn't ask any difficult questions   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They tried to lowball you but there is defenitely room for negotiation.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at National Australia Bank (Melbourne (Australia)) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Online application with the company website, then waited less than 2 weeks for a face to face interview with the department head and HR person. Got a call back with a conditional offer on the same day. The offer is conditioned on final probity check. Employment can commence before final probity check however it's still subject to the final probity result. The probity check can involve answering emails and making calls to previous employers to release your employment records.

    Summer Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at National Australia Bank.

    Interview

    Went through a few connections in NAB and got in touch with a Director at the bank. We sent a few emails back and forth, and eventually set up a phone interview (I was too far from their office to interview in person). Most of the questions were fairly typical: why NAB, why the finance industry, elaborate on a few of your experiences, etc. Professional and well-organized.

    Interview Questions

    • If you could pick any one person, living or dead, to have a conversation with on a park bench, who would you choose and why?   Answer Question

    Recruitment Interview

    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at National Australia Bank (Melbourne (Australia)).

    Interview

    After initial phone interview, face to face interview took place with hiring manager and another manager. Interview did not seem prepared and managers were upfront in saying they had not spoken about how they would structure.
    Questions asked were generic and a couple not really relevant to the role or business area.

    After the interview did not get any feedback for about 3 or 4 weeks.

    Interview Questions

    • No overly difficult questions. Used generic questions.   Answer Question

    Graduate Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    No Offer

    Interview

    Quite a long recruitment process with a lengthy written application, online testing (verbal, numerical, psychometric, personality), video interview and assessment centre. Information provided was quite clear and the Graduate Team replied to my queries swiftly.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions were not particularly difficult or unexpected, but the interviewers did probe me for additional detail. Make sure you are very well-prepared for the behavioural questions.   Answer Question

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at National Australia Bank (Sydney (Australia)).

    Interview

    Informal. They asked simple questions about my past experiences and said I was good fit. They used a mobile to call me to arrange an interview and unlike most big companies, they didn't provide an email confirmation. When I arrived, the place had a very relaxing vibe and the informal interview reflected that too.

    Interview Questions

    • There were no difficult questions, just basic ones like what sort of things did I do at my previous workplace and what I liked and didn't like there.   Answer Question
