Neutral Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (Los Angeles, CA) in November 2017.

Interview

First Interview was a group interview, which involved more information on the college program.

Second step consisted a personality assessment.

Third step was a one-on-one interview with the Recruiter focusing on behavioral & past experiences. There was also case studies that are designed for the recruiter to evaluate your thought process, and determine if you are coach-able.

Last step you have to conduct market surveys with people you know about their experiences with the financial services industry. Make sure when you meet with the Recruiter you have questions about the market survey process, and be ready to explain what you learned from the surveys. Try to ask for as many referrals.

    Interview

    The first interview was a phone interview to get to know you, then you get called into a group interview/information session to learn more the company. Didn't proceed with the process just because it wasn't my type of field. NWM is really cool though!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (Chicago, IL) in August 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process begins by a person from NWM emailing you to set up a phone interview. If you move on, its a group meeting about what NWM can provide. They give you an assignment of contacting your friends and family to set up your clientele to begin your internship. I hated the idea of having to use my inner circle to make money. No clients, no money.
