Application Process & Interviews at NAB

7.5 rating for Recruitment, based on 12 reviews
Please describe the interview process and assessments.
Psychometric testing, video interview, assessment centre. I did a test presentation but was never actually interviewed.
For the graduate role it was pretty intense with a lot of hurdles
Written application > Aptitude testing > Video interview > Assessment centre > Group interview
As I was internal, the assessments comprised of the usual online type assessments and I had a two on one interview.
The assessment centre was engaging and challenging. Although, there was no formal interview was conducted.
It was a very smooth process from the application, to the online testing, then and interview with 2 managers.
Online application with an aptitude test. Then a face to face interview
The interview process quite long - it involved an online application, psychometric assessments, a video interview and then an assessment centre. The team were accessible and communicated throughout the entire process, which was fantastic.
What questions were you asked in your interviews?
Why do you want to work for NAB? Describe a time had to work with a difficult colleague.
Why do you want to join the company? Unfortunately I can't remember the rest!
They were all mainly behavioural questions. Trying to find out what type of a person i was, what i would do in a certain situation and etc. Also questions about the company.
Job specific and graduate specific
I was asked about my life experiences, instances I exhibited leadership and teamwork, and how I see myself as fitting within the NAB values.
Do you have any specific tips and advice for candidates applying to your company? How would you recommend they best prepare?
Know the company inside out. Especially how the company measures its success.
Read the website and news on the company - make sure you learn about the company's activities outside your area of interest (e.g. community involvement). Practice any and all interview questions you can think of. Use the STAR approach.
Do thorough research on the banking industry as it is highly regulated and any prior knowledge will look impressive.
Be sure to know exactly what area of the business in which you want to work. The stream for which you apply may not offer the opportunities and roles that you seek in your chosen location.
Be yourself, respectful, polite and energetic. Don't be fake, and definitely know most of the key details about the company.
Be yourself & show you're willing to learn
NAB hires based on behaviour and cultural fit. You can be the smartest person in the room, but if you can't connect with people then you won't be a good fit for the organisation. Be yourself in the interviews.
