Business casual. People were easy going and respectful. One interview I asked all the questions and another one it was half and half. They were great about breaking the ice.

The interview process was quite long at Northwester Mutual. It consisted of 5 steps. The first was an initial phone call with a Northwestern recruiter. One week later was a in-person interview with the same recruiter. After this a personality assessment must take place. The third interview reviews this with the development director. After this you are given a packet to go conduct 10 interviews with potential clients. 3 are from your close network, 3 are from your more distant network, and 4 must be with people you don't know. After this you return for the fourth interview with a financial advisor. Then the final interview is with the Managing Partner or District Director of the office

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (Chicago, IL) in Jun 2017

Interview

The recruiter was very easy to speak with and friendly. The interview process started with a phone screening then several online tests, a Skype interview, and a final face to face interview. The recruiter spoke highly of me but the Financial Representative I met with seemed to have little interest in me. The rep didn't ask me many questions just talked about the position. The rep seemed as if the decision was made before I even got there. However, the questions that were asked were pretty simple nothing out of the ordinary.

Interview

It is extremely long and time consuming. Only do it if you are really interested. You meet with the operations person first. If they are interested they will send you an assessment on how well you work. After this you will hear from individual representatives that might be interested in your results

I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (Boston, MA) in Aug 2015

Interview

First round were questions about the basics. However, I explained my visa situation with the recruiter to let her know I'm an international recent graduate with a work permit for 1 year and she said no trouble with it. However, they made me go all excited to a second round a couple of days later, they where 20 minutes late, and this recruiter asked me where I'm from and my legal status, which I had previously explained to his colleague, just to be told the interview was over, as they don't take people with my status. Disrespectful waste of time.

Interview

-You do a test to see if you're suitable for the position -If the hiring agent likes you, they will give you a chance. -Come professionally dressed and make sure you look the hiring person in the eye. Since they are in sales they know how to read body language pretty well. Show confidence in order to not get low-balled on the negotiations. -They will ask for your resume/cover letter beforehand so they can form questions for the interview. -If you pass you will most likely be asked to start within a day or two since assistants have a high turnaround agents are always looking for new ones. They want to focus on sales and have you take care of the underwriting, service, and case prep or analysis of funds (depending on your registration status).
