I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Nationwide in April 2010.
Interview Details – This was a Pay Band D position. The interview lasted 8 hours, including lunch. The Director at the time had people take a weird "brain teasers" test he made up. It was irrelevant & seemed to test how you would function under pressure & was entertainment for the Director. An interview should not last 8 hours unless it's a V.P level job or above. But a pay band D? Absurd.
Interview Question – Multiplication, division & algebraic questions that you had to do in your head. Very complex brain teasers. View Answer
Negotiation Details – They told my supervisor they were going to make me an offer. They told me what my salary was going to be & offered to pay moving expenses from San Antonio to Columbus Ohio. No negotiating.

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Nationwide in October 2013.
Interview Details – I was contacted by a recruiter through my resume posting on Careerbuilder.com. She contacted me entirely too often for never really having any news. We had an initial phone interview that was very typical of phone interviews topical questions about who you are and why you would be a good fit for the company. From there you have a face to face with the manager that you will be working under. The same kind of questions were asked that were asked in the phone interview but they wanted you give more elaborate answers. Next, you go and shadow one of the senior sales agent for about 30 minutes.

I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Nationwide in December 2013.
Interview Details – They were looking for someone who could work part time during the school year and full time during the summer.
The interview was easy, but seemed a little too laid back. Both interviewers were nice, but appeared unprepared for the interview. They asked a couple behavioral questions, outlined the position's responsibilities, and opened the time up to my questions. They were very up front about the fact that a portion of my time would be spent doing busy work (labeling folders, taking notes in meetings for the supervisor).
I was told I would hear back in a week. Three weeks later, I received a call asking if I would be interested in interviewing for an Application Development Intern position (more in my field of interest). I turned down the interview since I was starting classes in two days.
