    Human Resources Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Nasdaq (New York, NY (US)) in January 2015.

    Interview

    One of the top awful interviews of my career. Interviewer was on her phone the entire time, with the nanny, her husband, looking at her computer. I was clearly interrupting her day.

    Director, Product Management Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Nasdaq in March 2013.

    Interview

    Initial phone screen by HR, followed by brief in-person interview by head of HR and CEO. Additional interviews are in-person among additional peer and senior staff.

    The initial in-person interviews were haphazard and unfocused. HR spent a disorganized 15 minutes asking for my overview after admitting to not have prepped or reading my CV. She was called out early for a conflicting meeting. Time spent with the CEO was brief (30 mins) and largely centered on him providing an overview of the company and culture making it challenging for the candidate to get their stories in.

    Interview Questions

    • The initial phone screening by HR was well done, conversational and an exercise of identifying experience level and experience relevance match. The in-person interviews were poorly managed with too little attempt at understanding the candidate's match.   1 Answer

    Pricing Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Nasdaq (Philadelphia, PA (US)) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Nasdaq HR recruiter contacted me through LinkedIn as I my profile was a good fit for a role in a growing team. Interview process was very easy and straightforward thanks to the fantastic HR Bruce.

    Interview stages were as follows:
    1) phone call with HR to assess fit, review resume and expectations.
    2) preliminary phone call with hiring manager with both basic technical (coding) Qs and behavioral Qs.
    3) HR called back to inform that I was selected to move to the on-site interview stage. I was asked to complete a short coding project with presentation. A week's time was given, which was ample despite my day job time commitment.
    3) half day on-site interview with hiring manager, peers and HR. The interview with hiring manager included the presentation and code review.
    4) Final decision notice took about 2.5 weeks but only because of the Xmas and New year holidays. Again HR was kind enough in letting me know that the decision would take time ( which was expected due to the holiday season).

    I really enjoyed the interview process because all the interviewers conducted the sessions like open conversations, not just to assess my ability to fill the position, but also to help me understand what the role truly involved and if I wanted to be a part of it.

    All the employees are brilliant without being alpha-competitive, unlike some other big name companies. Even after joining here, I have (happily) found that all my colleagues are honestly invested in the company mission and genuinely want everyone on the team to do their best. This is definitely something that influenced my decision to accept the offer, although the job profile showed excellent growth potential and benefits were competitive as well.

    Financial Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Nasdaq.

    Interview

    After applying online, received an email from HR to schedule a phone interview - basic questions (walk me through your resume, why do you want to apply for this role, what compensation are you looking for, etc...)

    After this, a team member from Manila will reach out to schedule an in-person interview. This was very inefficient - added more time, miscommunications, etc... There was no need to outsource this step.

    In-person interview was great. Plenty of technical questions mixed in with behavioral questions.

    After that the team member in Manila reached out again to schedule a follow-up interview with the team members.

    Offer took 2 weeks to come through after the 2nd round in-person interview. Offer is contingent on a drug test, very thorough background check, and FBI fingerprint scans.
