I have been working at Nationwide Building Society full-time
great company to work for
not much opportunity for progression within the company
I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Nationwide Building Society (London, England) in March 2020.
Sent CV (no need for cover letter) and answered 2 customer service questions. They stated they will get back to everyone once applications were closed. Exactly a week after applications closed they sent me a text and email to set up a phone interview. Phone interview took around 20 minutes and to be honest interviewer was very dry (she even alerted me if she stays quiet is because she is writing down what I answered) so I would not say is an interview but basically a question and answer as she does not engage with you. That can be quite nerve racking especially as you never really know how well you have done. Once again, exactly a week later I got invited to a video interview. They sent me an email along with the invitation that had all information on how the interview was structured so you can really prepare well. The interview process was quite relaxed as the two interviewers were super nice and open. After asking about myself they explained to me the structure and timing (strengths based interview, role play, numerical test and illustration). The interview part was really conversational and they cared about how you would react to situations based on your strenghts as well as they touched upon the importance of policies in banking. The role play is easier than it seems just be relaxed and actually embody the role. The numerical test is very simple is just based on simple addition so do bring a calculator, they just want to make sure you are good at simple maths. Afterwards, they told me that they will get in touch with an answer exactly a week after (similar to the other steps). Then exactly a week later they called me offering me the job.
