    IT Applications Development Interview

    Interview Details

    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.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Nationwide.

    Interview Details

    Had a phone/screening interview with a manager in HR followed by an in-person group (2 ppl) interview. I would have been working with and directly reporting to these two interviewers. They alternated asking me pre-deteremined/canned interview questions off of a printed-off company list of interview questions. They also recorded (via writing down) my responses. It was very non-conversational and I never felt like they asked any insightful questions to my work history or capabilities in the potential role. I left disappointed in the entire process.

    Interview Questions
    • Was not expecting the lack of an organic/insightful conversation between myself and the interviewers to truly determine if I was a proper fit for the role.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Nationwide.

    Interview Details

    I had an interview with them at a conference for their Data Analysis team. The interview was very easy, behavior only questions. Most of it was the person interviewing me explaining what I would be doing, what their goals are, and how they need people. She asked me mostly what I was doing in school in why, what I liked about it, etc. This happened on October 10th. It is now a month later and I STILL haven't heard back from them, even when the person who interviewed me told me I would hear back in about two weeks.

    Reasons for Declining

    They still have not gotten back to me more than a month after I had the interview. Absolutely ridiculous and unprofessional.

    Interview Details

    Spoke with a recruiter first in an on campus interview. Then was called and spoke with two managers. The questions were designed to make you think, but the interviewers weren't critical. After I was offered a job I was given 24 hours to complete a drug test, which was difficult to schedule, but I was able to beg a hospital to do it for me.
