I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Northwestern Mutual (Jacksonville, FL) in January 2015.

Interview

Applied online then contacted for a phone interview. Phone interview mostly about yourself and your family and a little about your background. A week later was contacted for in person interview which was a fairly straightforward interview. Contacted the next day for a 3rd interview that will be set up a week later.

    Interview

    The people who you talk to are extremely outgoing and easy to talk to. They seem to have a genuine interest in who you are. After my interview I was asked to interview people I knew well and get referrals and then contact the referrals. The first interviews are a breeze but people hesitate to give you referrals and the referrals definitely hesitate to give you referrals.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Northwestern Mutual (Chicago, IL) in January 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was very long. It consisted of a couple phone interviews and a power point presentation. I also had to complete the "Rhino Project" which is basically a booklet that you write down the contact information of 100 people that you know in. They love college athletes and great communicators. Remember that the internship is a sales position so try to present like one (be convincing and don't b.s.).

    Interview

    It was very easy. It felt like a conversation more than an interview. I had 2 rounds of interviews. After the first interview, I was given a "challenge" to get as many referrals as I could out of 50 possible. I got 47. It was easy-medium to get the referrals.

    Interview

    They will call to screen you, and that is followed by 2-4 in person interviews with recruiters and managers. The people you deal with are very friendly and want you to become apart of the team. I didn't accept because another opportunity came up, however I was willing and ready to become apart of the team. Just watch out, it is advertised as "top ten internship in the US" but it is as good as the work you put into it, or at least thats what I gathered from my brief experience there.

    Interview

    The interview was very straightforward and weighs heavily on your goals and your network of friends and family. I decided not to proceed to the final round because selling insurance is not what I intend to do out of college. It is a lucrative field but can be very difficult for those who have a limited network.
