Interview

On an office-visit 1-on-1 interview, the interviewer asked me briefly about what my backgrounds were. Interestingly, there were no questions directed/related to the tasks of job and my skills. It seemed like the interviewer was trying to find out if I am the right cultural fit for the company more than anything else.

    Interview

    Applied online through University and got connected to the office closest to my home, which was a flight away. had a phone interview because of the distance of my school from home. Interview was positive and got the job, but there is a process of calling and interviewing people beforehand to see if the internship is right for you and then you discuss that process with your recruiter.

    Very simple, but split into 3 portions. The group interview was the easiest, then I had to give a presentation on a topic of their choosing. Still waiting on the call back for the third round of the process.

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual.

    Interview

    The initial interview was more of a pre-screening interview where I met with the recruiter and had a "get to know" conversation with him to see if I would be a good fit for their internship program. At the end of the interview there was "homework" where I had to come up with a list of 100 people (mostly family & friends) I could call on the first day of the internship.

    Interview

    I was out of the city I was interning for in the Summer, so my interviews were mostly skype. I was first brought into my local office and we just discussed Northwestern Mutual. Next I had a skype interview and after that another skyper interview with a presentation. At this point I decided the job was not right for me and I withdrew myself from the process.

    Application

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

    Interview

    They seemed really eager to have me join their team, but then you realize that they are eager for *anyone* to join their team because the role of the intern is to get 100 of their friends and family to buy insurance. I don't understand why they have everyone pretense in going through their interview process when the only question that matters to them is whether you have 100 contacts.

    Application

    The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (North Andover, MA).

    Interview

    I submitted a small profile to a recruiting site and was contacted in less than 24 hours. It seemed desperate to call back that soon. I was then asked to come down for a group interview in one of the offices where 6 of us were shown a PowerPoint and then given separate time with the recruiter for one on one time.

    Interview was an average one. It was done by Skype, but they told me that I would be selling insurance only to my friends and family which was a turn off. Then had to complete a personality quiz which they reviewed.
