    Company has too many managers, resulting in excess costs.

    Customer Service Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lincoln, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Nationwide Building Society (Lincoln, England (UK)) in November 2017.

    Interview

    Online Application followed by recruitment evening 1-1 interview.
    At the recruitment evening the staff offered a short presentation about Nationwide and some info about some of their roles. Then all candidates went in for a 1-1 interview. They kept stressing it was a short and quick interview, so seemed like they weren't looking for long answers.. felt a bit rushed. I had prepared by learning info and facts about Nationwide but they didn't ask about any of it, or my past experience. Was a bit thrown by asking about why I had worked abroad and why I came back.. too personal and nothing about relevant experience. Also didn't give me an opportunity to give examples of past experience or STAR related answers that I had prepared.

    Interview Questions

    • Why nationwide? Asked about my time traveling/working abroad. How would you build a relationship with a customer? When were you in a situation where you found something difficult?   Answer Question
