    Solutions Engineer Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Klarna (Columbus, OH (US)) in March 2018.

    Interview

    Very lengthy, throughout process. Frustrating too.
    Received a phone call by a recruiter in the UK. Nice chap. He sold me the company as the next big thing in Fintech, a leader in Europe and expanding in the US.
    First I took a "logical thinking" test online and hit a good score.
    Secondly, they gave me an implementation assignment. Since I came this far, I thought I should take it. I'm not much of a programmer so I spent about 10 hours on it.
    I discussed my assignment with the Sales Engineering team.. nice folks.
    My results were "passable" so they flew me over to Columbus for interview and whiteboarding gexercises.
    I spoke to the Director of customer service and the Sales Engineering team. For what I could tell I was by far the oldest person around (I'm 43). Very millennial atmosphere.
    I got drilled for an hour or two.. resolved a logical problem on the board and discussed some payment network flows (and where Klarna product is positioned).
    The next day the recruiter called me and told me Klarna decided to give the position to an internal resource.
    That's for the best because by the end of the interview I already knew that Klarna was not the place for me. Too bad I spent 30 hours in the process, including in-transit time, to find that out.
    The upside is that this interview process made me look at my current job with a fresh and more positive perspective.

    Junior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Klarna in November 2018.

    Interview

    Overall, the interview process is simple. First they sent a logic test consist of find the pattern questions, then a basic code test which has no time limit. I recieved the test after a week of the application. After I have done the tests they responded my 1 day later that I have passed them. Then a HR employee reached out to me that I have passed all the test and they want to interview with me. The first interview is pretty straightforward, what Klarna do, who are you, what do you do, etc and they gave me another logic test. In order to progress you need to do pretty high, I have done 17/18. Then they took me to a cultural interview, which was okay, the interviewer was nice, they asked about Klarna mostly. One down side of the interview process that, they knew from the beginning that I need relocation and visa support, although in the first interview they said me that they will provide such things I was positive. However, in the cultural interview, interviewer said that they do not offer relocation and wont provide such things to junior positions, they said me that they were just curious about my resume and that's why they interviewed me. Basically, a waste of time of mine. Also they should have at least sent a proper feedback why they did not hire me.
