I interviewed at Nationwide

Interview

The process itself was great, the interviewer was discriminant and I knew I didn’t have the job the minute he spoke to me. I’m highly qualified, did very well throughout the interview…smiled, engaged, good knowledge of the company, he wasn’t impressed

Deloitte

My financial advisor mentioned Nationwide Variable Universal Life Insurance Accumulator would be a good financial instrument as we are now in a higher tax bracket. This type of life insurance seems complicated and has some fees attached that stresses me out (although the return sounds better than other life insurance). Anyone have this plan or thoughts on VUL?!? Need advice.

I interviewed at Nationwide

Interview

I met a recruiter at a career fair and then was emailed and invited to interview. Before I interviewed they gave me an Excel/technical skills assignment where I had to analyze a little bit of data and it was pretty easy- I used tableau. The interview was about 45 minutes and there were two ladies interviewing me. The beginning was presenting the assignment and the rest was all behavioral.

Interview Questions
  • What technical skills do you have? What skills are you looking to gain from this internship?

90 minute competency based interview, only round. Friendly interview and included review of some data to analyse live whilst interviewers watched on video call. Actually took weeks to provide feedback though which is slower than most places.

I applied online. The process took 1 week. I interviewed at Nationwide (San Antonio, TX) in Sep 2022

Interview

Didn't get a chance to have my final interview because no one ever joined the Microsoft Teams meeting. The interview was scheduled for an hour and for an hour I waited like an idiot. Hoping someone would join and have an apology about their tardiness, but NOPE. Very disrespectful.

They contact you by Email 1st , don't be surprised if it's 3 weeks afteryou applied they are slow to respond. Then it's a screening by the recruiter. Then a video chat interview. Be warned they will low ball offers and not budge on salary. So whatever salary range the recruiter tells you its the lowest number . It's d ppisappointing
