    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (Duluth, MN) in September 2016.

    Found Northwestern Mutual at a college job fair. The recruiter seemed really passionate and excited about the company which made me want to learn more. She invited me to a interview and it took 45 minutes. It was just simple questions about customer service, your goals, and personality. At the end she explained the program and what it was all about. Then asked if I was still interested, and if i was, I had to contact her to set up another interview.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (New York, NY) in September 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and soon was called to schedule an interview. The interview was 1-on-1, and I was also introduced to some other staff members. It was only during the interview that I learned that it was going to be an all-commission (no base salary) sales activity by cold-calling individuals (not businesses) and that I would have to start with my personal network of people. Some days later, I had to fill out an online personality quiz which took me over an hour. After that, I never heard from them again.
