    Financial Leadership Rotation Program Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Columbus, OH
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Nationwide Financial (Columbus, OH) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Did not like this at all. I've had an internship with the company prior to getting this full time interview and was sure I wanted to work for this company. I only had one person on campus and I'm not even waiting on a response.

    There weren't any questions about me with the exception of one. He asked a lot of what he considered "abstract" questions to get to know how I think that I thought was just another word for irrelevant and I would have appreciated him getting to know me and my experience instead. I no longer want to be with this company.

    Territory Development Director Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Dublin, OH
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Nationwide Financial (Dublin, OH).

    Interview

    Mostly questions about character, honesty, "what would you do" kind of things. Casual with two ladies and myself. Follow-up interview with two gentlemen in same setting. Small conference room. Very nice and genuine feeling to interviewers, nothing negative to say.

    Interview Questions

    • What are you most proud of?

      Tell me about a time you met a deadline, tell me about a time you failed and what you learned from the experience.. Etc. Lots of "Tell me about a time..." So have your stories of highs and lows in your career ready to go, along with lessons learned.

      What is something you struggle with or could improve?

      Honestly it was alot of character-based questions to gauge your personality.. not much technical-oriented or job-specific questioning, which surprised me. No quiz on my skills or knowledge, but I did have a friend on the team so that may have helped. Knowing someone can be everything.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Nationwide Financial.

    Interview

    Phone interview was the first step. Basically asked me a series of situation questions, what I knew about the company, what kind of work environment I wanted to work in. After I passed the phone interview they asked me if I wanted to come into the office so I could shadow and talk in person. Received an offer later that day. The whole process took about two weeks or so.

    first had to take online assessment, lasted about 30 mins. Involved taking practice calls, thew a website.

Then I was invited to the main campus for an interview. Three person interview panel. One typing and recording all your answers as you speak them. Two other people took turns asking you all situation type questions. Then for 30 minutes...you went and sat with one of the other reps, and listen/watched them take calls and work. Then they called you back into the room, and explained in great detail the hours, the time office policy etc... etc. Whole thing last two hours, all interviewers wore jeans and sloppy t-shirts.
