    Solutions Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

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

    Marketing Associate Interview

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Klarna.

    Interview

    After securing a referral, I waited about four weeks to receive an email from Klarna. The email stated that I’d receive another email containing a link for a logic test, great.

    Interview Questions

    • The logic test email came about a week later. I took the logic test and was sure I passed with flying colors. The following Monday, I receive an email. The email says Klarna loves my resume and I’m on to the next stage of their ‘several step’ process. Then, two minutes later, I receive another email. This email states that I failed the logic test and would not be moving on to the next stage. When I inquired that there may have been an issue, the recruiter was short and quick to shoo me away. This is suspicious, unprofessional, and frankly inconsiderate. This is a large corporation. Surely people fail their logic or aptitude test, and receive an automated email saying so. To send me an email saying I move on, then an apology email afterwards, is ridiculous. I cringe now every time I see there many position posts online.   Answer Question

    Interview

    I went forward with the first step of the interview which was a logics test. It was 15 or so questions in figuring out the next pattern. I thought I did well but turns out I didn’t and they could not move forward with the process. I find that very odd that a short quiz is a dealbreaker for the role.
