Northwestern Mutual

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Charlotte, NC

No Offer
Neutral Experience
Easy Interview
Application

I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (Charlotte, NC)

Interview

The person I interviewed with was a younger man and was nice enough. He asked what my plans after college were, I told him very vague things. The office I went to was somewhat busy and it was at decent office building in Charlotte, NC. I ended up getting a different internship shortly after the interview, but even if I hadn't I probably wouldn't have worked here.

Interview Questions
  • What are you plans after college? Do you have an interest in investment options and financial advisory?

I was contacted to set up an interview a couple days after I applied. The interviewer asked me about myself, did a 15 minute presentation on the company, and asked if I had any questions. She then told me it was up to me whether or not we scheduled a second interview. I decided not to pursue it any further.

Interview

They asked for a list of my contacts and their information before employment. Seemed like they were just using me for my information. It was a waste of time because it was multiple interviews totaling over 2.5 hours.

Easy Interview
Application

I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (Cold Spring, CO) in Mar 2020

Interview

Very formal: First they start with a phone interview. I’m pretty sure they had a copy of my resume and were just asking basic resume questions. After they invite you into their local office to speak with a recruiter. She talks about Northwestern, the internship and then the compensation. To pass the internship you are required to sell “10 lives.” Northwestern refers to a policy as a life. Essentially all you sell are 10 life insurance policies. This is all with fixed compensation and the only work you do is bring your contacts to Northwestern. For as much work as you put in this is one of the least paying internships out there. They guarantee $100 a week for showing up to a meeting, however the rest is on how well the “clients” you bring to them buy the policies. This is an easy industry to get started in I would probably not spend a summer doing this.
