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

    Interview Details

    I met some recruiters at a career fair in school, they seemed to be having some trouble attracting interested people, but we had a good talk and they pursued an interview. I talked with the regional intern director on the phone for 40 minutes or so, she got back to me a few weeks later and offered an interview at the prospective office. That second part was a huge waste of time, they were trying to sell the internship more, I don't think they even asked any questions.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 daysinterviewed at Northwestern Mutual in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    I met the intern coordinator at a career and internship fair at my university. He looked over my resume and scheduled an interview. I had an interview with a financial representative. It was very informal as far as interviews are concerned. He asked me what I knew about the company, what I see myself doing in the future, if I go up to people and ask them for help when I need it, etc. Then he asked what questions I had and essentially let me pick his brain and he walked me through his experience. It was more of a conversation than an interview.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Northwestern Mutual in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    Quick interview, very conversational, talked all about the position and a lot about the office social life. Interviewer was very young, she laid out the basic commission structure and weekly pay and so on. Process was extremely informal Skype interview, she told me about how the job's pay was correlated to what you put into it, "what you put in is what you get out" even though I have heard otherwise. She made a point to tell me that they don't want to force me to sell to family and friends, although in the starter packet she sent me, one of the first things they say to do is think about your "network" and who you would sell to/

    Interview Details

    They try to sell how its a top internship in the country. They don't say that you have to try and get your friends and family to sign up for their insurance. You aren't given any leads. Compensation is all commission based so they don't lose any money if they don't like you.
