    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (New York, NY) in July 2017.

    Interview

    First interview is very easy, just an informational interview. Very friendly recruiters.
    However, I was canceled on for my first scheduled interview very last minute and when I showed up for the rescheduled interview, my interviewer was not there and they had to find a random recruiter to interview me.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (Albany, NY).

    Interview

    A recruiter reached out to me through LinkedIn. I called the number the recruiter provided and set up an interview time. The first interview was NM selling themselves to me and showing me what the top guys make and pumping up my ego for the job. They asked for names of friends to contact at the end and set up a second interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (Grand Rapids, MI) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I really liked the interview process, felt very much like a series of conversations, as opposed to interviews. I really enjoyed the people there, as well as the conversations. The job wasn't the right fit for me, as it was 100% commission. Company has a great culture!

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (Farmington, UT) in May 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was a little bit differently because I had to do a presentation. The presentation was more or less selling myself and why both myself and the company would be a mutual fit. Just more or less what a normal interview would be like but done in the form of a presentation.
