    Interview

    I was impressed with the thoroughness of the Interview. It was in three parts and included a test drive assignment. Asked everything from my childhood and family background to personal social relationships. Seems like they really do seek out high level candidates. I am a little skeptical about how they want you to use your own social contacts for sales.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (Logan, UT) in March 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was very in depth for me. I had two phone call interviews. After the phone call interviews I got called into a group interview with two other interns so there was three of us all together. We asked questions and got the internship explained to us very well in depth to see if it was what we wanted to do. Then he scheduled is for a final interview the following week to allow us time to think on it and prepare a powerpoint presentation as well of why they should pick us in order to be part of the internship program. During this period we also did 10 surveys of friends and referrals in order to give us an idea of who we will be working with and how people answer. Very well put together process in order to find out who is serious about attempting this internship.

    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.

    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.
