    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Svenska Handelsbanken (Leeds, England (UK)) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Had a successful phone interview and was invited to an assessment centre in Leeds. The assessment day consisted of an interview, two group exercises, an in-tray exercise and a numerical reasoning test. The staff were extremely friendly and made you feel very comfortable given the situation. The bank has a large focus on the long-term and has a very interesting culture and organisational structure.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Svenska Handelsbanken (Manchester, England (UK)) in March 2017.

    Interview

    All day interview at Head office in Manchester. Had a group exercise and presentation. Had a one-to-one interview and a in-tray exercise where you had to write a letter back to a customer who had complained.
    Did not receive an offer. However, after spending over £160 to get to the interview and back I did not get reimbursed. Also found it VERY frustrating having to chase Handelsbanken up to find out if I was successful or not. We were told we would hear back 2 weeks after the interview but even still after three no one had bothered to contact me. Not impressed.
