College Financial Representative Interview

Anonymous Employee in Princeton, NJ
Accepted Offer
Neutral Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (Princeton, NJ) in December 2018.

Interview

I applied on NM's website and was contacted by a Recruiter at the Princeton office who invited me to attend an information session along with 20 other students where we were informed of the position and what the company was about with a powerpoint presentation and two employees conducted that. At the end of the session, we were handed a sheet with how interested we were in the position and based upon your interest level they emailed you to set up a one on one interview which was very basic and then you were invited to a follow up interview where you had to supply a list of 30-50 names through referrals based upon 5 different target markets and this was also another basic interview and once that was complete you would be notified in the coming days whether or not you got the position.

    Interview is easy and they will hire you if you can talk to people. They sugarcoat it by getting you sucked in and then playing you hard. Make it sound a lot better than it is.

    There were three interviews, all with very friendly and professional interviewers. Enjoyed each one of them and was inspired by the environment and the people that I’ve met so far. They contact you shortly after the third interview and let you know if you’ve been accepted to go from an applicant to a candidate. If you become a candidate, you will then begin to prepare for your life and health brokers exam.
