Developer, IT Applications Interview

Developer, IT Applications
Dublin, OH

I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at Nationwide in October 2012.

Interview Details – I recieved a call from an IT Applications manager and was asked to provide times that I would be available for an interview. I schedule a time that was appropriate for myself and the manager to meet. Upon arriving at the facility on the day of the interview I was taken to a conference room where I participated in a panel style interview with 4 other members of the team. I was asked behavioral and situational questions by the managers and technical questions by the developers. The behavioral and situational questions are just the generic, "What would you do in this situation" type questions. The technical questions involved writing some SQL statements and pseudo code.

Interview Question – I would say that some of the technical questions were the toughest for me as I did not properly prepare before the interview to answer them.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – The negotiation was quite extensive with a lot of back and forth between myself and the HR representative that I was assigned to. I ended up taking an offer slightly lower than I wanted due to the cost to the company to train me.
