    Associate Underwriter Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Interview

    Automated phone screen after application was submitted. Very difficult to convey your personality when you are basically waiting for the beep to begin recording. Asked for desired salary and I believe that weeds the most out from getting an interview regardless being negotiable.

    Underwriting Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Scottsdale, AZ
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Nationwide (Scottsdale, AZ) in July 2017.

    Interview

    I applied for the job on Nationwide's website. I received an email from the recruiter to set up a phone interview. During the phone interview, the recruiter was friendly and straight forward about what she was looking for in a candidate. A few days later I received an email from a second recruiter to set up an in-office interview for the following week. For the interview I met with a supervisor and an underwriter to discuss the position. The interview lasted an hour and was very pleasant and conversational. When I left I had a very positive impression of the underwriting department at Nationwide. I received a rejection letter 2 weeks later but I know they were trying to find a person with the best skills and experience to fit the opening so I was able to take the rejection in stride. I will definitely be applying for more positions there in the future!

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Nationwide (Columbus, OH) in July 2017.

    Interview

    Short and seemed as if I was being interviewed because of my race...meeting gov't quarterly quota. I didn't get the sense that there was an interest in moving along the interviewing process. My overall experience was not great...in fact it was awful and disappointing.
