    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Nationwide Building Society.

    Interview

    Firstly I filled out an application online to show my interest.
    I then received an invitation to attend a recruitment evening at my local branch where I had quite an informal chat with the Branch manager as he went through my CV and wanted to learn a bit about myself.
    I was then told if they thought I could be suitable for the role I would then be invited back for a more formal interview with the Branch manager again and the customer service manager.
    I luckily was invited back for the second interview where you have to prepare a to talk about one of their products ( I chose the flex plus account ). Along with answering some competency questions.
    I received a phone call the same day to say I'd got the job!
