    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Nomura Holdings.

    Interview

    Submitted application on the website, and received phone interview several weeks later. HR was very kind. Asked me to walk through my resume and asked several related questions, like the programming language and libraries I used. Didn't receive any behavioral questions but were asked to bring up some questions to Nomura. I asked something about their internship program but guess that was not something they were looking forward to. The whole process was about 20 minutes and the HR said I'll receive the reply within 3 weeks, but I haven't got any yet.

    Public Affairs Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Nomura Holdings (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    Came in for an hour-long interview. Had a great conversation and enjoyed meeting the team. Was then asked to do a writing assignment that involved watching a 90 minute congressional hearing and summarizing it. A little over a month later, I had not heard anything back. I searched for the job title on LinkedIn and saw that someone else had been offered the role.

    In the future, I would ask that you please send me a note letting me know that you do not respect my time and have no courtesy as a hiring office before I waste hours of my time only to come to the same conclusion.
