    Director Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed 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.

    Contact Centre Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at National Australia Bank.

    Interview

    First point of contact was a telephone call, which led to the assessment centre group interview. It was a great relaxed environment, it wasn't like a regular group interview. The only group thing done was a short introduction of yourself and where you found out all about the job and NAB. Everyone then went and completed the rest on their own with NAB employees. That could then lead to a job offer and the probity checks. Make sure you check your NAB profile>job application as the status will let you know what's going on eg, Background checks

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed 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

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I 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

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed 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
