IT Applications Development Interview

Interview

I applied online and got response with in a month(I do not remember correctly). I was asked to set up a time slot for the interview and I did it. I got interviewed by two people over the phone. The interview was mainly about discussing my resume and also they asked me various behavioral questions. The interviewer told me they will get back with in a week but it's almost three weeks and even the HR who set up the interview seems to have not heard back from those interviewers. I am still waiting hoping that they will get back to me. I feel that in a big company like these, these kinds of practices should not be encouraged because they can not keep candidates waiting for a long time after telling them that they will get back in some time.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Nationwide (Dublin, OH) in October 2012.

    Interview

    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 Questions

    • 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.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    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.
