    I have been working at Nationwide Building Society full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Pay if you negotiate, progression if you try hard enough, work life balance brilliant, great managers,great colleagues. Great perks such as private healthcare, bonuses, pay reviews, childcare vouchers

    Cons

    Joe Garner. He does not fit with our culture and is slowly killing off a lot of what we do (apart from mortgages which is thriving - at the moment!)

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of a big bank ex boss - we don't need his "reduce people's job profile to the bare minimum so they get bored and leave and we don't have to make them redundant" attitude

    I applied online. I interviewed at Nationwide Building Society (Northampton, England) in November 2015.

    Competency based interview process where you are asked to highlight certain career aspects using the STAR system (Scenario Task Action Result). These questions will ask you about subjects like innovation, leadership, meeting deadlines and prioritisation. Make sure you are prepared with a few examples as there are 2 sets of questions per category which are worded differently.
