    Claims Specialist I Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Nationwide in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Within a week that the online application was sent, I received an email that stated that minimum qualifications had been met and they now needed me to fill out and submit a screening questionnaire. The questionnaire helped me prepare for the interview. A week later, I was called to schedule in for an interview for that same week. The interview was very professional, but at the same time relaxed. It was more of an ongoing conversation as opposed to other question-based interviews. The interviewer was very approachable and open to questions. I was told that all candidates would have a later interview were they would have the opportunity to see exactly what the job was by sitting with other peers to observe and meet with the manager. About 2 weeks later, that second interview was set. Employees were very kind and friendly. Although, there was a high volume workload that day, I was pleasantly surprised with the work environment. Everyone seemed to get along well. After the interview, I was told to be in the outlook for a decision by that same week. And accurately, 3 days later, I received the offer letter.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Nationwide.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and contacted by a recruiter who explained everything - salary, what to expect, nature of the job. Interviewed by 2 supervisors. All 3 were very comfortable and friendly, easy to connect with and talk to. So many other jobs will intimidate you, but this is not their intention - I was pleasantly surprised by the interview, and really enjoyed it. It made me want to work here.

    Interview Details

    I applied on line and within a week I received a call from the HR representative scheduling the interview for the following week. The interviewers did not make me feel welcome or relaxed. It was a tense interview. I was not impressed with this type of interview. This is the first one I have had like this in years.

    It was more of an information sharing on their part than was an interview where I was asked questions. They were impressed by the kind of work that I had already done in my previous job.

    Senior Analyst, IT Ops - PCT Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Nationwide in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied on career builder. I did not hear anything for almost three months and thought my resume went into a black hole. To my surprise I was contacted for a phone interview after all the time had passed. I interviewed successfully with one of Nationwide’s recruiters over the phone and went to a two person onsite interview which was supposed to last an hour, but went well over. The interviewers asked typical IT Operation questions around prioritization and behavior questions. They explained what type of work would be performed on a day to day basis, which lined up to my experience very well. Then I was asked normal support questions. The questions were not difficult for me to answer. I was told to expect to hear something back in a few weeks, since they wanted to move quickly. I never received a call back or email. I asked for feedback about a month later and did not hear anything back. Since I did not hear anything, positive or negative, I would be a detractor towards Nationwide’s talent management processes.
