    IBM BPM & SOA Developer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Nationwide (Columbus, OH) in November 2017.

    Interview

    I was called by a recruiter from Nationwide and quickly scheduled an in person interview at their Columbus location for two days later. I was told three people would be interviewing me, but there were only 2.

    The interviewers were looking for more integration skills and knowledge in the IBM BPM platform and IBM ESB, etc, as opposed to application development in the platform itself. I have more experience in the full stack application development as opposed to the integration side, and one interviewer made it apparent that they were looking for more skills on the integration side. I spent more time on how I added value to my current company and team in high level ways, who I was as a person, and my passion to learn new skills, but it was clear they were not interested in that. There was also a bit of a language barrier between one interviewer who was the team lead and myself.

    The position was senior. I got a call a week later from another recruiter saying that they thought I was weak in the skills area, so they would consider me coming in as junior, and suggested a low salary at $60,000. I said that with my years of experience (4.5), I may take a different title, but the lowest I would go would be $65,000. This was very odd because I would have thought there would have been more discussion before getting to to this stage.

    A day later I got an email saying I didn't get the job. I am assuming this is because of my salary cap, but there were a couple of other logistical factors, such being one semester from graduation, that also could have affected the result.

    In general, the whole process seemed rushed and a little unorganized.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Nationwide (Columbus, OH) in November 2017.

    Interview

    I worked with an HR to schedule a phone interview. Shortly after reviewing qualifications I received an email to set up an onsite panel interview. The interview team was courteous, and security was friendly. A few days passed and I received an email to set up a secondary interview with a manager/director. I had been traveling for my previous job and our schedules were very hard to line up but they were very flexible about waiting for my return. I met with the hiring manager and had a great connection. I was sent an offer one business day later. I have never had such a great and quick interview process.

    Friendly and helpful. Interviewed through my campus and had a quick turnaround. They were easy to communicate with and very helpful with any questions! I would defiantly do your own research on the company before you go as they have several complex business units. Overall, great experience and I accepted the position. Great company and casual laid back atmosphere.
