    Personal Lines Underwriter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Ankeny, IA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Nationwide (Ankeny, IA).

    Interview

    This was for a position that involved 6 weeks of training in personal lines underwriting for the West Coast. I have many years experience in personal lines, grew up and started my insurance career on the West Coast and had many years as an agent for Allied. I did the first phone interview and then never heard anything within the time frame they said I would. I emailed the recruiter back and received a generic email back saying there were better candidates for the position. I asked for some feedback on what I could do to make myself be a better candidate and heard nothing back.

    Interview Questions

    • Why I thought I'd be a good fit. Would the hours work for me and what was my current salary. I have a feeling the salary question probably had a lot to do with my not being one of the chosen candidates although I did say that my salary was open to discussion if I were to be given the opportunity.   Answer Question
