    Capital Markets Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Nationwide Building Society in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online. Received a response after 2-3 weeks requesting me to complete numerical and verbal reasoning tests. Circa 2 weeks later was invited for an interview. In the interview they asked many questions about my background related to the position. Afterwards, they said they would get back to me in a few days. So, I sent an email a week later. No response. Then I called after 2 weeks and they said they would call me back the next day. No response. So, I called after 3 weeks. Again, they said they would call me back. No response. Finally, after 1 month they sent a standard template HR email that they send to people who don't make the first round of interviews. So, it was disappointing how the follow-up was handled.

    Interview Details

    Fairly swift process, interview was organised very quickly and interviewers were friendly enough. Office environment also seemed quite friendly. However, didn't get the job and no feedback at all, which I consider bad after spending the time to do the tests and interview/s

    Interview Details

    I had to complete numerical and verbal reasoning tests. Was invited to an interview and asked to prepare a presentation on the role of digital media. I did not get the job and was not notified of this decision by either phone or email, which I found disappointing and discourteous.

    Online application, phone interview (the stage I am up to) one to one interview, as far as I know, that is the full process, although I imagine there's a maths test.

    It is a competency test based interview. The interviewees are very friendly and welcoming. I loved the fact that this is only dependant on merit and not on reccommendation. If you do well and give a good impression you'll be given a chance.

    Interview process was the most shambolic process I have ever been through. Very slow and unprofessional. Did not want to proceed after first interview. Hiring manager did not answer emails in a timely manner. And when he finally did, he sent an email which was meant for another candidate to me
