    Interviewed for A Junior Trading Position Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Nordea Bank (New York, NY) in July 2009.

    Interview

    Meet with HR representative Rosanne Paladino, very pleasant. Was asked to fill out standard paperwork, then to join her for a one-one in the conference room. General questions about my resume, myself, education, why Nordea? Why not another bank? Then met with a friendly gentleman from the trading division. The interview went great, he even walked me to the elevator and held the door to continue conversation, however.................. As I was told a decision would be take shortly approx 1 week after the interview, Roseanne Paladino kept leading me on, telling me she would reach a conclusion shortly and that they were going through the final stages........ When I called back the third time she had quit, and there was a new person responsible for her work, the person was not aware my interview had ever taken place, and was rather unpleasant. Furthermore the individual told me they would return my call, and see what the progress was on the decision! No luck, they never called back, never gave an explanation of what happened, or any information on the position. Very unprofessional!

    Senior Compliance Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Stockholm, Stockholm (Sweden)
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Nordea Bank (Stockholm, Stockholm (Sweden)) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Professional, informative and personal. The process is long and complicated, however they are as accomodating as they can be within the parameters. I have interviewed for several positions with them, only one where I was declined due to my nationality. However I think that is based on the individual who was interviewing and not reflective of any xenophobic or anti immigrant mentality in the bank, just one individual person.

    Interview Questions

    • Standard interview questions, some control questions. The difference is more that they are incredibly professional and open and try to be as personal as they can.   1 Answer

    Student Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Nordea Bank.

    Interview

    The process consisted of two interviews. The first one was with the hiring manager where he checked if I had the required technical skills for the job, that I had claimed to have in the cover letter and CV. I did not have to do a demonstration, though. I didn't have to do any test (personality, IQ) either.

    Second interview was with the same hiring manager but also an HR representative, where she did most of the talking. Here I was presented with hypothetical scenarios where she was primarily interested in how I would interact with my future colleagues.
