Interview

Very smooth and fast. The hiring manager was friendly and professional. They do a great job of making you feel that you are entering into a corporate finance profession when in fact it is a sales profession which is largely masked as a corporate career.

Negative Experience
Easy Interview
Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (Milwaukee, WI) in Oct 2016

Interview

Fairly easy interview process with generic interview questions and friendly recruiters. They sell the position as being a top internship that allows you to help others while you get an outside of the class room experience. What they leave out of their description is that the position is actually an insurance sales position only. There is no cold calling for this job, so you have to find your clients based off of a list of your family and friends. Personally , when I found this out it sounded like hell, but it ultimately depends on you're own personality and what type of job you're looking for.

Interview Questions
  • Would you have a problem with having family and friends as your clients?

Difficult Interview
Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual in Dec 2013

Interview

Started off by going to an information session and signing up for an interview slot. Met with interviewer and was asked to interview 5 people that you know to see if you are familiar asking people about their finances. I then called the interviewer back after I finished these 5 interviews and came in to talk again. During this interview, I was assigned a task to call 5 former interns and develop a set of questions to ask them. After getting all 5 to answer, call back interviewer and set another date to come in. On this third interview in the office, met with the Chief Development Officer for the Dallas area. We talked about what my goals were and where I would like to go in my career. He told me to really think about whether I really wanted to be a part of this internship or not and call him back the next day.
