    Developer, IT Applications Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Dublin, OH
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dublin, OH
    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. 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 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.   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.

    Claims Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Dublin, OH
    Anonymous Employee in Dublin, OH
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Nationwide in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    Was called by a random number in Iowa to interview for a Claims position. Were pretty flexible with the interview schedule. However, the interview itself was a barrage of "Tell me about a time when..." questions.

    Usually, these are expected in any interview...but once they dove into it, it was about 40 minutes of that, over and over again. Most of the questions overlapped, and there were times when I had to recycle instances I had already said. They didn't seem to care about whether your answers were applicable or not, they basically just wrote everything you said down. I'm guessing they ship off the "results" to someone else who decides whether or not to hire you.

    I was told at the conclusion of the interview they would "call regardless of their decision to hire/not hire". They didn't do such a thing. I received no email or anything.

    Short version: They basically "shotgun" 20-30 'Tell me about a time when' questions for an hour.

    Interview Questions
    • Tell me about a time when you went above and beyond what was required of you, and the results it entailed.   Answer Question
