Easy Interview

Director Interview

Director
New York, NY

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 months - interviewed at National Australia Bank in October 2011.

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

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

Senior Business Analyst Interview

Senior Business Analyst

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 months - interviewed at National Australia Bank.

Interview Details – It was a 3 stage interview which seemeed to repeat much of the same, with little to differentiate between them. Some general questions about Financial markets, some technical questions about trading systems, and some abstract questions about pricing methodology for derivatives.

- What is volatility
- How do you deal with an Angry trader!
- How to do you manage difficult relationships, people you dont like
  Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Counter offer at above the range that they initially provide -recruitment consultants are the best source for the range.
