    Anonymous Employee

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Northwestern Mutual.

    Interview Details

    Pretty simple and asked average questions. Nothing that was't easily answered. But it took awhile for them to get back to me about the position. They were extremely nice, but they could have been better at following up with me.

    Financial Services Representative Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through other source – interviewed at Northwestern Mutual.

    Interview Details

    Initial interview, online personality profile, and an in-depth interview are just a few of the many steps involved in the hiring process. I was given an appointment for an "initial interview" by a recruiter at a job fair. She essentially made her pitch to sell me on the job and the company. She asked me some questions about myself, basically to gauge if I was good fit for the job, and if I should continue to the next step in the process. To get the next step you have to fill out 2 online surveys, which they send you the link to complete from home. One is a personality profile and one is a culture index. Then you get scheduled for an "in-depth" interview with the branch manager. I was sent the links and given an appointment for my in-depth interview, but decided no base salary was a deal breaker so I cancelled the next interview. She made a good pitch, the company and their products sound wonderful, but I just couldn't swallow not have a secure income since I have a family to think about.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Northwestern Mutual.

    Interview Details

    invited me in for an information session and explained the company and what it was about. To me it seemed like a scam exploiting my friends and family try to sell insurance to them. Didn't bother compiling a list and looked for an internship somewhere else

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Northwestern Mutual in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    Took about three weeks after applying online to schedule an interview. I scheduled it at 3:00PM but they called 30 minutes in advance. I could not pick up at the moment so I gave it a wait. Never received a call again so I emailed the recruiter explaining the situation and asking for an alternative option and she just told me "we called but you did not receive it. You also didn't have a voicemail set up". I told them I am no longer interested.

    Financial Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Northwestern Mutual.

    Interview Details

    They called me in for two interviews. They told me they would get back and utterly ignored me! I did a lot of driving, interviewing and testing. They then just flat out ignored me and refused to respond. I spent over an hour and a half each time interviewing and was told they went well.

    Interview Questions
    • They have a very friendly interview process. They just became utterly unresponsive. They have me travel over 100 miles total round trip, go through 2 and a half hours of interviewing, taking an hour an a half of online testing and told me I would hear the early part of the following week. Not only did I not hear back, but they did not respond to several calls and emails. I felt very disrespected and that they at the west Los Angles office are very unprofessional for the above facts.   Answer Question
