How was the interview at Nationwide Building Society?

Pros

Members are lovely, I work with the best team and managers. Overall Nationwide’s culture is good if you read and listen to those much higher up. Nationwide really wants to do the right thing, by members and teams, unfortunately in Scotland the agenda is that of our leaders.

Cons

Regional leadership has gotten worse and worse. Favouritism and lack of leadership. I have heard some horror stories about others in the North have been treated. The genuine members of the senior team have gone. People at my level should believe in a fair interview process. It’s just really poor and utterly disappointing and unacceptable.

Advice to Management

People talk at all levels. Don’t underestimate that underhand tactics won’t be talked about amongst lower level staff in branches. I would be interested to know how you fair in the “how are you feeling surveys”. Trust is important at all levels and the trust is lacking in Scotland from the conversations I’ve had with peers. A leadership change is needed.

People at my level should believe in a fair interview process.

What is the hiring process like at Nationwide Building Society?

Pros

Great places to work wherever you are based. Flexible employer valuing work life balance. Good package and pension.

Cons

Bureaucratic Too many in middle management with no power to promote individuals Poor performance takes a lifetime to correct HR support is poor Too many side of desk conversations and not enough focus on productivity Antiquated hiring process and focusses on technical knowledge too much and not enough on people values!

Advice to Management

Have less people in middle management and give them some power to make decisions and trust those decisions - make it easier for them to promote their good people and avoid losing them!

Antiquated hiring process and focusses on technical knowledge too much and not enough on people values!
