Easy Interview

Application

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

Interview

Phone Interview. Interview was nice and offered a lot of information about the position and what it entails. Typical behavioral questions. Took about 40 minutes. The questions only lasted about 15 minutes and then we talked about compensation and how all of the interns get mentored and have a lot of guidance as long as they want it during the summer. Emphasized that hard workers can make a lot and have the most success.

    Interview

    I thought it was extremely unprofessional when during the interview process, they asked me to refer 5 of my classmates for the same position. I still have 2 steps left in the process, and my friends have already been contacted. I thought this was extremely rude.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (Austin, TX).

    Interview

    Mostly behavioral questions. They will ask about your family and where you are located. The description of the internship seemed interesting. But was not clear what the intern would do. Turns out you will mostly be doing sales for insurance. Was not something I sign up for.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (Los Angeles, CA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I spoke to college recruiter at a college career fair. I attended an informational session where group of college students were educated about the company: North Western Mutual.
    After that I scheduled one on one interview with the college recruiter. She was pretty unprofessional.
    The interview was held weekly asking many behavioral questions. They were expecting interns to sell insurance to family members and friends but I was not trying to sell things to people that i know.

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (Bloomington, IL) in December 2016.

    Interview

    In-person interview with Recruiting Director. Very personal and in-depth questions. They want to know why you are interested in the position and the firm, whether you are willing to make phone calls, push yourselves to make a sale, or willing to commit to a full-time career there. Want you to recommend other students and be able to reach out to people you know to introduce their products and services.
