I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual

Interview

Covid-19 kind of ruined my normal hiring process, but nonetheless it was conducted over zoom and phone call. The hiring manager was very nice but the questions were still difficult.

Application

I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (Irvine, CA)

Interview

The interview process is basically one big sham to bring in new customers into the company. They tell you they don't do cold-calling, and hint in the first interview that they expect friends and family to become your customers. At the end they asked me of 3 friends that would also be interested in this "internship." For a "highly" competitive internship like they say it is, they are desperate to bring in more clients. In the second interview, they asked for 100 people that I know that could be customers and asked me to list them with their numbers/emails attached. I walked out of the recruitment process right there. They still call my friends asking if they would like to come in for an interview.

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (Spokane, WA) in Nov 2018

Interview

Initial interview: first a phone interview and then they brought me into house for personal interview. Felt like a sales pitch to join. It is not a Finance internship but rather a sales internship. The interview was basically around how you will be trained and then entered into the personal sales industry.

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 1 week. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual

Interview

Very formal and very professional. I didn't like the fact I dealt with four different people but I did like all of them. I would have preferred I was told details on the first or second meeting rather than the last. Found out it was an insurance sales spot to try and sell to all people you know and then cold call everyone imaginable. Not finance, not a good step to being in money management.
