    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (New York, NY) in January 2017.

    Interview

    The company will hire you regardless because they have nothing to lose when they pay no base. So the idea for them is to play the numbers game recruiting wise. The more they recruit, regardless of employee retention or not, the more they increase revenues. To have potential recruits not walk they create a deeply unnecessary interview process to increase the likelihood of potential recruits staying. It's a bubbled reality designed to portray a supposed process as actual. The reality is that this works to their advantage toward increasing retention. The idea is that you put so much in (including training whether necessary or not) that you'd feel a sense of loss if you did not stick it through with the company to stay and continue. I personally take the whole practice to be deeply dishonest and disrespectful. Honesty is important.

    The Interview process was rather quick and simple. There are 4 stages. They truly want you to become a leader so they have a lot of pre-hiring programs that set you up for leadership within the company. The people are young and rather attentive to your needs. They contact via email and are very personable.
