A lot of back and forth. Had to complete a Harrison Assessment in order to be considered for the position. The assessment holds a lot of weight on weather or not you get an in person interview.

Easy Interview
Application

I applied through other source. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (Houston, TX) in Mar 2019

Interview

Almost nothing to it. Be prepared to listen, and agree. I took a personality test but I don’t think that’s typical. They talk about what they need, and if you know the systems they use at all, they hire you.

I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual

Interview

I got an email from the hiring manager wanting to set up a phone interview. Got a call and she asked me a couple questions about my current position and what I was looking for in a company. Then she explained the position and if I felt it was something I was interested in. After that I had to fill out two personality tests. Shortly after that I was offered an interview. The in person interview was simple, I was asked a couple questions and then learned more about the company.

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (Harrisburg, PA) in Dec 2014

Interview

Was interviewed by office manager (assistant to MGA) and took a skills level (typing, spelling, grammar, and data entry) tests. Once all was scored, I then interviewed with the two agents that I was employed as their administrative assistant. Fairly quick process between the first and second interviews. Also had to pass a criminal background report in the new hire process.

I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual

Interview

The interview I thought went well. I interviewed with a hiring manager initially and she asked me a set list of questions, and then I met with another man who I would be working along side with and he asked me the same set of questions. I thought that I answered them well enough, but my issue was a lack of experience.

Easy Interview
Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (New York, NY) in Jan 2011

Interview

Most people were hired by individuals. I had my interview with a financial advisor directly. He asked me about my education and tested my language skill (because I said I am fluent in Chinese). He asked if I am willing to start part-time, and I said yes. That was pretty much it. He said he will get back to me and I got an email from him two days after saying that he would like to have me.
