I interviewed at Klarna

Interview

It was a very long process with a lot of interviews. It wasn’t clear what role I was interviewing for so the conversations around work were generic. They seemed like an interesting company. They wouldn’t put their offer to me on paper even after asking multiple times, which ended up in leading me to decline.

I interviewed at Klarna

Interview

Everything went very smooth. Staff looks very nice and professional. But it is unnecessarily long, especially for the two iq tests. The offered salary is lower than average. It seems like a pretty good company.

Hi everyone, Got a few offers that I would love some input on. Have offers from Visa, PayPal, Affirm, and Wisetack (series B start-up). Visa is in office while the other three are remote friendly, which is important to me. Visa comp is also about 30k lower than the other offers (tc from the other three companies are at around170, yoe 2.5). Normally I’d go with Wisetack or Affirm for the growth potential but given what happened to Klarna, I’m a bit hesitant. Which option would you go with

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Klarna

Interview

Long, tedious process. Inefficient and not in line with the rest of the market. I withdrew as with a demanding job currently and interviews elsewhere - a 5 stage process is not a valuable use of time.

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Klarna (Berlin) in Jan 2023

Interview

The first step in the process was the reasoning test. I passed it. Then had a call with the recruiter, who was very friendly and nice, and immediately after the call got informed I passed to the next round, which consists of 2 calls, and after both calls, there would be the outcome. When I had the call with the first person on the technical side, that person thought I was someone else, a referral from a colleague so immediately I noticed something was off. Then during the call, the person was shifting moods and decisions, and opinions all the time, ending up confusing me. That person looked totally underqualified to host these interviews, or was not prepared at all. Also, it seemed to me that they had this referral set up for this position. Then after this call the recruiter said we will not have a second call because my first call was below the passing grade, even though the outcome of that round was consisting of 2 calls. Very bad experience, will not apply again to them. They seem to have a very high opinion of themselves, and underqualified people hosting interviews and getting power over their heads.

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Klarna

Interview

I had a first interview with the HR person that contacted me on LinkedIn. Standard HR interview on my skills and on what Klarna was searching for. They sent me a technical programming test to perform on an online platform telling me that after having completed it they would have given me feedback. I completed the test (with correct results) but I received no feedback at all, even after I contacted the recruiter to ask for news. Really disappointing.

Multiple steps in the process, including a logical thinking test. The recruiter informed me upfront very well about every step, what to expect, how long will the interview take and who will be interviewing. Overall a good experience.

Interview Questions
  • There was also a case study done during one of the interviews. I was told that beforehand and the material was only shared in the call as previously informed.
