    Application Details

    I applied through other source – interviewed at Nationwide.

    Interview Details

    I was in need of work experience so I emailed a lot of different insurance franchises in my area. Nationwide got back to me very quickly expressing their interest in hiring a part-time intern, they scheduled me to come in and interview the week after we connected on the phone. The interview was very informal, it was more like they were just telling me about the job.

    Interview Details

    initial phone call to gather infor. Second phone interview, on site interview, and decision. Very structured and well organized. Equal chance for everyone involved.The onsite interview is very friendly and positive. There will of course be challenging questions. But nothing really to be afraid of. They will have someone from the department to take you out for lunch. The atmosphere was causal but professional. Got the offer in the end.

    Learning & Performance Specialist Interview

    Interview Details

    My interview was very informal. I was interviewed by the current team manager who asked me some basic questions around training & development. It was mostly her explaining the job to me. I think the manager felt I was a good fit on a personal level, which made the interview very laid-back and more of a conversation.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Nationwide.

    Interview Details

    Most that I have interviewed with lack proper or thorough skills. They enjoy repeating the same question. Rarely is anyone in the interview able to provide a concise description of the position and duties. Most that I have interviewed with also do not dress properly. I was always dressed better than anyone interviewing me. They like to tout their work/life balance.

    Interview Questions
    • There really aren't any. There is nothing new or original in their interviews. Each person is supplied with multiple questions to choose from.   Answer Question

    Insurance Agent Interview

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Nationwide.

    Interview Details

    Every agency is different. I just went in, showed my licenses, gave my personal strengths and weaknesses, expectations, described past work history, and how I would be of benefit to the agency. It was only one single interview and then we met in a coffee shop later to discuss salary. Again, every agency is different. This was a VERY small agency.

    Fight for your base salary. Commission percentages aren't enough to live off of until about the 2nd year.

    Marketing Consultant Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Nationwide in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Nationwide is a great company with many good things to offer. Unfortunately, their hiring process is lacking. Two times I've experienced long delays and unresponsive recruiters. The first experience I had in interviewing with them, the process took about 10 weeks. I had one phone interview and nine in-person interviews (yes, NINE). After I completed the last interview, they told me that they would make the decision quickly. I checked in with my recruiter weekly or every other week. After six weeks, she called me to say that they were going "in a different direction."

    The second time NW sought me out, on the recommendation of the hiring manager (who didn't hire me the last time). I had three phone interviews...and waited...and waited some more--another 4 weeks. I withdrew my name from consideration--"ain't nobody got time for that." I have a great job with a great company, and they don't jerk people around like that. Ever.

    NW will tell you that they want to hire quickly, but then they fail to follow up. My impression of the company has not changed, but I would never waste my time going through their recruiting process again.
