Intern Interview

Application Details

I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Northwestern Mutual.

Interview Details

College recruiter was very welcoming. Asked basic questions such as background, experience, education, and why you'd be interested in interning as a financial representative. Overall, the first interview was very pleasant and made it seem like a very nice place to work because everyone is suited up. Second interview was with the actual team manager the intern would be working under. Again, similar interview but this time made the career as a financial rep sound very promising, and that may or may not be true.

    They called me on the phone really early in the morning, seemed like a test to see whether I could think on my toes or not.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Northwestern Mutual in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Definitely seems like a great place to work and a great community. First interview was solely behavioral with barely even a focus on my resume. Second interview was also more about the company than me as a candidate. Throughout the interview process Northwestern did a great job of communicating exactly what they do as a company and what I would do as an intern.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Northwestern Mutual in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied through my college and had a phone interview. The lady that called was very kind. She gave me a run down of the internship and what it had to offer and gave me some questions to answer. After the first interview she called back again with another phone call asking some basic questions and giving me the offer to come in person for a personal interview.

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

    Interview Details

    Northwestern came to my school with what seemed to be some decent opportunities. As most reviews state, the process is long and probably not worth it.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Northwestern Mutual in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    Was initially contacted through LinkedIn, and an interview was set up within a day. Everybody was very friendly and the interviews were the easiest Ive had. Simple fit questions. They realize that not many people are interested in selling life insurance to their family and friends, so they recruit just about anybody and make the interview process very easy to get through.

    Interview Questions
    Reasons for Declining

    If you feel comfortable with cold calling your friends and family to sell life insurance, this is the internship for you. However, this is not finance related at all, like they make it seem, and is almost completely commission. I truly have no idea how this ranked a top internship program.
