    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Northwestern Mutual.

    Interview Details

    It was a three phase interview. First was to get to know me and what I want to do in life along with a personality/character test which was reviewed in the second meeting. Also, in the second meeting, I was told to go out and get a mix of family and non-family's information to try and fill out the life/health insurace sheet, which again was reviewed in the third meeting where the offer was made.

    Got the interview through a career fair at school. 20 minute talk at the booth and then was asked to come into office for an interview with hiring manager. Interview lasted about 40 minutes, very conversational and laid back. Basic questions about strengths/weaknesses, accomplishments, why us? etc.

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Northwestern Mutual.

    Interview Details

    I am in the midst of the interview process with Northwestern Mutual. They ask you to meet them, do they online psych test, background check, come back and talk to a Field Director, assign you project 100, come back and talk to an experienced Rep, talk to a Training Specialist where you review project 100, and give you a market survey project. Then you go back, review the market surveys, meet the managing partner, discuss compensation and benefits, and then, an offer may be presented after all is said and done. It is thorough, which is good, because I am SURE it does a great deal of weeding out before even attempting to get an interested candidate or a solid offer together. However, the market surveys are a bit much. They have you marketing to not only you friends and family when you do not even have a job, but they have you marketing to the referrals that were generated from your friends and family. Essentially, the expect people that do not know you, whom you haven't provided any service for, to give you their most trusted Rolodex names. I came across some difficulties with this - to say the least. And I do not blame people. I was wondering what other people came across - if people were willing to just pass along their personal information and the information of their friends and families. I certainly did not find this to be the case.

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    Two hiring managers speak to you in an interview in a conference room on the main floor where anyone can observe you through since the room is glass. They will ask you the routine questions as "tell me about yourself", "what are you doing with yourself now", and "what is your ideal job like and does this job seem a good fit for you." They will almost always call you in for a second interview, its a sales position.
