    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual.

    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).

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing was out the ordinary.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    You have a little wiggle room but not a lot. You will most likely be able to negotiate 2-3k more but it all depends on the success and experience of your agent.
