    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Nordea Bank (New York, NY) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Standard process. Interview first with hiring manager, then HR manager to review test results. Questions asked not out of the ordinary. But overall process was very slow when including background checks and drug tests.

    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!

    Capital & Risk Analyst to Management Reporting Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Stockholm, Stockholm (Sweden)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Nordea Bank (Stockholm, Stockholm (Sweden)) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I applied in February 2017. The process took one month. Sooner after the deadline, the hiring manager e-mailed me asking if I am interested in being interviewed, I then received an e-mail from the HR for an online ability test, SHL (easy). He later sent a case study with a small dataset related to migration analysis, in which I had to analyse and make a presentation. The case study is easy if you know the topic of credit risk and other tips are: look at their annual reports (credit risk sections) can be helpful to understand what they expect from the case study and the data given. I based myself on the annual reports to be inspired to write the case study.

    Any question asked during the presentation, will be based on what you are saying, be sure to know all the things on your slides and have clear concepts in mind and the sensibility of the numbers.

    For this particular role, I felt discriminated as the manager was not paying full attention to my presentation, and he left the room while I was delivering it, leaving me in the room with one analyst that works under him. A week later, I got an e-mail from the hiring manager saying I was not successful.

    Interview Questions

    • 1. Tell us about yourself.
      2. Why this role.
      3. Is there anything you would like to add that is not on your CV?
      4. (during the presentation) Don't you think you can add more graphs showing the relationship between capital and risk or other metrics?

    Graduate Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Nordea Bank (Helsinki, Southern Finland (Finland)) in February 2017.

    Interview

    the recruitment process was long. First, i completed online personality and ability assessment tests (about 2 hours). Then I was invited to an interview (1,5 hours). I got to the last phase of the process, an assessment day that took the whole working day. About three weeks after I got a phone call that they wouldn't actually be hiring anyone to the team I applied for, but rather the position would be filled in their Swedish office. So the position didn't actually exist, but they still put a great bunch of candidates trough the whole process. Can not recommend Nordea's Graduate program for anyone based on my experience. The positions you apply for might not exist, it's barely and Employer Branding activity.
