I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual

Interview

Very laid back interview, with limited questions. It was more of a “get to know who you are” type of interview with a casual conversation. Did not get asked many questions, because the interviewer was basically trying to sell me the company and their values

Interview Questions
  • What high school did you go to? Would you fit in well with our team?

Interview

They were very kind and worked inside a beautiful office. It was very professional. However, they wanted me to bring a list of 50 family members or friends for a list to sell life insurance to upon starting. It was unnecessary and eventually a failing model.

I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (San Jose, CA)

Interview

The interview is very easy and outgoing, mostly just questions based on your experience and knowledge. I would say there're 2 interview steps, but the meeting is 3. First one is with the recruiter, he/she wants to get to know you better, easy questions, mostly ask about yourself and your previous experience, do some research about the company and what do you think the job is. Next interview is with a higher up person, he/she will then talk to your more in depth about the job. Do some research and ask the interviewer as much questions as you can. If he/she likes you, then you get an assignment. Nothing too hard, you just have to meet at least 5 people, ask some questions (about yourself). It's not graded or anything, so take it easy. You come back in the next meeting, show it to that person and you talk a little bit more. If they think you're qualified for the job, they'll give you a call in a couple days

Interview Questions
  • Nothing to difficult. It's straight forward and really easy. It's mostly from your own experience
