Application

I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Nationwide Building Society in Sep 2021

Interview

Applied online for their Landlord Works product, HR screening, 1st round with the hiring manager, home task (3 hours), 2nd round presenting the task + product sense. Negative experience. Despite the time investment they require from candidates, Nationwide failed to provide constructive feedback and only shared a 3 lines template. I got back asking for some constructive feedback for personal development and I've been since ghosted by all involved. Significant Lack of respect for candidates.

I was emailed prior to the interview 4 sections of Nationwides values that I would be interviewed on. I was then asked a question from each category in my interview. It was a very simple process and you had to make sure to use the STAR formula for every question which they explain in the email

Interview

Competency structured interview with two of the existing team, followed by 2nd stage interview with the Head of. Interview itself was good, interviewers were very friendly. Disappointing to only receive a generic rejection email afterwards with no feedback, despite chasing.

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Nationwide Building Society (London, England, England) in Aug 2021

Interview

2 interviews via Teams. Absolutely fine. It’s the rest of the process that’s shocking. A standard rejection email with no offer of feedback and feedback is impossible to get. The recruiter was faceless and unprofessional. Emails had no contact details on and didn’t answer the phone when I finally got their number. Really doesn’t stand up to the values you say you live by NWB!!
