I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Klarna (Columbus, OH)

Interview

When I got there to check in I watched an associate approach several others, who then all turned and laughed at me and spoke about me. The walls are glass, they were easily seen. This was the first tip off that this place was unprofessional and I should’ve left honestly because I had a bad feeling the whole time. This was one of the most unprofessional, inappropriate, intentionally uncomfortable interviews I’ve had the displeasure to be apart of. The interview was a great pre-cursor to what every day in that office would be like. They also lied during the recruiting process and said I would be joining a team of 2. When I asked in the interview they started laughing all together and informed me that not even one person was in the department. They were upset I asked about benefits, PTO, and some situational questions that would apply to the position. They admitted they do not know what they are doing in regard to this position which is why they were looking into hiring an expert. Do not fall for the bait of a young start up whom you think you’ll be able to help mold processes and procedures. They offer good benefits and PTO starting out but it would never make up for such an elitist, unprofessional, toxic work environment. I tried to reach out to the recruiter to tell them of my experience and received a brief email they’d gone with another candidate which was honestly some of the best news I’ve ever received in my life.

Interview Questions
  • “Who was your favorite out of all of us who interviewed you?”
  • “If this interview got more awkward than this, would you be able to handle it?”
  • They truly ask the same questions regarding the position over and over in different ways. It’s redundant.

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Klarna (Columbus, OH) in Mar 2018

Interview

Very lengthy, throughout process. Frustrating too. Received a phone call by a recruiter in the UK. Nice chap. He sold me the company as the next big thing in Fintech, a leader in Europe and expanding in the US. First I took a "logical thinking" test online and hit a good score. Secondly, they gave me an implementation assignment. Since I came this far, I thought I should take it. I'm not much of a programmer so I spent about 10 hours on it. I discussed my assignment with the Sales Engineering team.. nice folks. My results were "passable" so they flew me over to Columbus for interview and whiteboarding gexercises. I spoke to the Director of customer service and the Sales Engineering team. For what I could tell I was by far the oldest person around (I'm 43). Very millennial atmosphere. I got drilled for an hour or two.. resolved a logical problem on the board and discussed some payment network flows (and where Klarna product is positioned). The next day the recruiter called me and told me Klarna decided to give the position to an internal resource. That's for the best because by the end of the interview I already knew that Klarna was not the place for me. Too bad I spent 30 hours in the process, including in-transit time, to find that out. The upside is that this interview process made me look at my current job with a fresh and more positive perspective.

Interview Questions
  • The usual questions about your background, some logical tests and payment network questions.
