Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Northwestern Mutual (San Jose, CA) in April 2015.

Interview

Begins with a brief interview in person getting to know a little bit about you as well as explain a little about the internship. The second interview is with the financial advisor in charge of your internship. He asked basic questions about my resume and explained the internship in more detail. He gives an assignment for the third interview that requires you to reach out to friends and family to inquire about the market.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 daysinterviewed at Northwestern Mutual (Wellesley, MA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    So this was a really chill and easy process. They will call you on the phone and talk to you for a bit, then invite you into the office. Once in the office they will give you a brief 30 minute fit interview, mostly explaining the internship. I did not pursue it further because they ask you to fill out a sheet with your potential market aka your friends and family. I did not feel comfortable doing that.

    Application

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

    Interview

    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.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Northwestern Mutual (Morristown, NJ) in February 2015.

    Interview

    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/

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Northwestern Mutual (East Lansing, MI) in February 2015.

    Interview

    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.

    Interview

    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.
