    Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Copenhagen (Denmark)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Saxo Bank (Copenhagen (Denmark)) in June 2008.

    Interview

    no personality tests and no HR rubbish. actually no HR staff were involved in hiring me at all. The 1 on 1 interview was with the head of sales and the group interview was the head of sales, the team leader who would be my direct manager and one member staff to assess my language ability, since both managers did not speak that language. on the 1:1 interview the head of sales asked questions regarding my CV and my achievements and experience in previous jobs. he asked questions about what I am really after and why do I want to be in sales. I was honest and told him I just wanted a job and wanted to make money and with my qualifications and the things I do the best a sales job seem to suite me well. I was recommended by someone who worked there so I got a kick start. but I do believe that I would have got the job even without the inside contact.

    Associate Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Gurgaon, Haryana (India)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Saxo Bank (Gurgaon, Haryana (India)).

    Interview

    The HR called and explained the role stating that it is a mix of delivery and people management. Was called for round 1 with the HR head and supposedly followed by round 2 a video conferencing with onshore leaders. When I reached for the 1st round with the HR , I was informed the role was people management only and delivery was not an aspect covered and that their HR executive made a mistake. A post of Associate Director who is expected to manage only people, whatever the reason for setting up the role, I was keen that I get involved in delivery too. But it was clear that we had hit a glass wall. So interview was over even before it started. Created confusion to get candidates in the door. The HR needs to get their act together on reruiting and be respectful of time and efforts people are putting in, the organisation as well as the candidate.

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Saxo Bank (Gurgaon, Haryana (India)) in December 2017.

    Interview

    On 16th dec they called lot of people for mass drive. I reached at 8.30 and they started an induction which took 2 hours.then an apti test for 1 hr.after that from 12 to evening I was waiting for interview. I had to ask hr shall I leave or what, then for namesake they interviewed me and at 6 they told you are not selected even when my interview was good.
    Reason as other people told they needed 3-4 people but to show there management they did this drive.in whole day 3 people they have selected that also with least notice period.
    Basically they wasted our full day, they should understand we waste our time and money to reach here.
    Good thing: gave us free meal and shaks
