Randstad Temp (Current Employee) – Grove City, OH – August 6, 2016
Typical workday consist of indexing insurance policies to make sure that the policy holder information matches policy number. I am also cross trained to scan documents into server to be indexed out, as well as maintaining proper retention schedules to make sure documents never backed up.
Horrible place to work, it should be against the law to require employees to work more than 40 hours without compensation
Adjuster (Former Employee) – Raleigh, NC – May 18, 2016
Run for your life. I gave them a one star because I could not give them no stars. I would rather be unemployed then work here! Balance there is no balance here it is all self preservation. They could care less if you ever left your desk. They give you 20 claims on Monday and then anywhere from 5 more daily to another 20. They don't give a hoot about anything except customer service survey scores.
Large company with growing pains and leadership deficiencies in certain areas
Specialist (Former Employee) – Brentwood, TN – May 18, 2016
Overall the company has great potential. It is going through a re-branding process while merging operations. Right now they are shedding older staff. It is difficult to advance unless one has connections. Management is very "clubbish" and it is difficult to break into positions without the backing of upper management leaders. Supervisors and lower level managers are often not well versed in leadership techniques.
In our very busy office we still make time to have a little fun and its more like family then co workers. Management is extremely caring and understanding, the hardest part of my day is time management and the the most enjoyable part of my job is helping people and knowing i have covered all their needs
I loved my time at Nationwide. They work hard at providing some great team building activities. There is also a very diverse set of people there. I really appreciated that they created an atmosphere of inclusivity. They are also very supportive of non-profit participation and typically provide some time to devote towards charity activities.
Fair compensation and bonus structure, Good work/life balance, no micromanagement
Senior Claims Associate (Former Employee) – Richmond, VA – May 9, 2016
I worked for NW non-standard which means that the insured is a bad driver with a bad record of accidents. From what I was told by the people who work in standard it is a nice place to work however non-standard is the pits. If they could make you work 25 hours a day, they would do so. The manager of non-standard is trying to get ahead in the company and therefore she drives everyone to work as much as possible so that she looks good by getting more work done with less employees. DO NOT accept a job at non-standard.
Direct National Sales Agent (Current Employee) – San Antonio, TX – May 10, 2016
Nationwide is a very good company to work for, they truly care about their employees, and offer great benefits. A typical day would consist of taking inbound calls, providing quotes, and doing some outbound calls to follow up on previously quoted customers. Nationwide focus is on consultative selling.
Compensation, contest and award programs, flexible schedules
They invest in their associates with necessary training. Takes a while to navigate if you are new.

Accountant (Former Employee) – Savannah, TN – April 27, 2016
A typical work day consisted of answering phones and taking payments. The beginning of the month was the busiest time, but it was always manageable. The office manager was very efficient and kept everyone on track. My co-workers were pleasant and supportive. The hardest part of my job was dealing with people whose rates had increased without explanation. The most enjoyable part of my job was having a set schedule with weekends off and paid holidays.
Excellent company! I highly recommend to anyone looking to get into insurance or the corporate environment.
PC Customer Service Supervisor (Former Employee) – Des Moines, IA – April 21, 2016
I worked at Nationwide for five years. In that time I held four different titles and double my pay. This is a company where you can really apply yourself and create a career path that suits your skills and needs. People interactions are always going to be both challenging and rewarding. With a positive attitude you will have the opportunity to de-escalate tense customer interactions. Being a part of a company that helps people during some of life's toughest struggles (the loss of a home, vehicle, even loved one), will provide a deep sense of purpose.
The typical work day is fast pace. I managed a staff of 7 specialist, reviewing files and coverage's for accuracy which included quarterly audits for compliance of best practices and un-fair claims practices. Most days were intense and stressful but fun.
Training Specialist (Former Employee) – Nashville, TN – April 18, 2016
During my 14 years of employment with this company I saw many changes and quite a bit of growth. The employees went from feeling like family to feeling like just a number on a spreadsheet. Unfortunately Nationwide's growth included opening and closing offices all of the country and centralizing and decentralizing different job roles on multiple occasions. The company downsizes its field employees with each change all while encouraging those same employees to work on personal development.
Senior Underwriter (Current Employee) – Sacramento, CA – May 9, 2016
A typical day is busy, but that is fine, I personally enjoy keeping my mind active and cannot stand to not have anything to do. Management is supportive and encourage us to continue self improvement. The hardest part of the job at this time, is my department is being relocated to another state and not very many co-workers are going.
Material Damage Claims Adjuster (Former Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – April 13, 2016
There isn't a day that goes by that I regret leaving Nationwide. Great management and employees. Pay was ok but for Central PA was better than most. If you work here or are planning to here is some advice. Stay! The job is demanding and requires a certain skill set. But the rewards outweigh the long hours. Good people and I miss having authority over my decisions and pride in my work.
Working at Nationwide is very beneficial. The management is excellent. The time frame of resolving issues is fairly prompt. The job is very enjoyable because it keeps you engaged. I like the cross training of the job the most because it makes you more versatile as well as learning the job the supervisors are great at reviewing and training as often as needed to help you succeed.
Lunch hour, times flies by because your always busy
I enjoyed working for this company. They are top-notch!
Sr. Support Analyst, Contract Administrator (Former Employee) – Columbus, OH – April 4, 2016
Allowed to work with all levels of management, as well as outside vendors and their representatives.
Nationwide allowed growth within the individual and encourage this in their business model.
I developed a MRSA Staph Infection due to back surgery, and they were supportive during this time, by allowing me to work from home after my release from the hospital and learning to walk again. However, this necessitated an early retirement after 15 years of service when I had difficulty walking from the parking garage to the offices. This also is the reason for the lapse in my career from 2002 to returning to work in 2013. The Drs. said I would never walk again, but I did!
CA Field Claim Specialist II (Current Employee) – San Francisco Bay Area, CA – April 14, 2016
Great company to work for. Hard to be promoted within the same job role. If you are mobile there is more growth opportunity. The people here are wonderful and appreciate hard working dedicated individuals. Great benefits as well.
Great Benefits, Great people
Internal promotions are hard to achieve in the same job role, small raises from year to year
Good place to work, the interview process was short due to the fact it was for a temporary contracting position. The compensation was fantastic. I appreciated the workspace provided for me as well as the laptop. Lot's of little perks that makes working there fun with young professionals. It's located downtown so plan on paying for parking.
