    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Nationwide (Columbus, OH).

    Interview

    The interview was quick, and we went over basic interview questions. We went over my work experience and how it would apply to Nationwide. I was then given a brief tour of the ground floors of headquarters. It was a positive experience. Not everyone's experience will be like mine. Most interviews are going to happen with a director or manager, and may have technical questions involved.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Nationwide.

    Interview

    Applied online and heard back fairly quick. The interviewers were extremely professional despite the drawn out script of questions they had to ask. The interview was fairly dry and boring because of the script and the interviewer was looking down most of the time. Some of the questions seemed highly involved for a recent college grad applying for a rotational program, but they want the best. Make sure you do your research and a lot of it before interviewing with them!

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Nationwide.

    Interview

    Went very smooth. Treated with utmost respect. Took the elevator up and was greeted by a woman who took me to a room full of potential candidates. You could cut the tension in the room with a knife. We all waited as our specific room became available. One by one we got called in. Then the interview was pretty much exactly how you would expect it to be, outline of the job then explain yourself them behavioral questions then salary expectations. Went very well. Very happy with how they treated me

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Nationwide (Gainesville, FL) in April 2015.

    Interview

    It was a very relaxed interview, but after so many with Nationwide you know that doesn't mean anything. I had no idea whether or not I got the job until I actually received an offer.

    Interview

    very easy, met with the agency owner and basically just went over what was expected of me on a daily basis. He had several of the usual questions that you receive in an interview: where do you see yourself in 5 years, why should i hire you, what are some of your goals, etc.

    Interview

    They asked random, layerless questions. Smile a lot. Make a lot of eye contact. Answer every question in depth! Do not be afraid to wait 5-10 seconds to think about your answer. Be personable and let your personality shine. Find a way to slide in random facts about yourself into the interview.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Nationwide (Columbus, OH).

    Interview

    My 1st Interview at University and 2nd Interview at Nationwide in Columbus, Ohio. The initial interview was laid back. Following the first interview, I did not receive a call back for two months. After a couple months, they finally called back and invited me to interview at their corporate office. There were 3 interviews and it took the whole day and overall it went well. Following this interview, they NEVER called back. Not even a polite acknowledgement that I did not have an offer. This is an embarrassment for such a large company. If a candidate is willing to dedicate several hours toward your interview process, it is pathetic that they will not get back to their candidates.

    Interview

    Submitted online application and was contacted by a recruiter for an interview. The interview was very short, it was around 20 minutes and I was emailed response right after. The interview as a whole was very easy and laid back, I don't think there is any preparation necessary. No technical questions were asked except asking what languages/what extent I was proficient.
