I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual

Interview

Interview was not bad at all. Pretty generic questions (tell me about yourself, strengths, weaknesses, why do you want this job, etc.). I wouldn't stress too much about any curveballs being thrown.

Application

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (Grand Rapids, MI) in Apr 2020

Interview

It was a great atmosphere. There are 4 steps to this process, so definitely not a short one. The first step dealt with a ton of information about the company, but it would be a good idea to come with some questions because if you don't process things quickly you'll be left with a bunch of questions afterward. However, definitely worth doing to get the information.

Interview Questions
  • What I majored in while in college and why. Also what I liked most about it.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual

Interview

Started with a group interview where we were asked about which of their company values we align with most. Then there were a couple in-person interviews with case studies, focusing more on how we problem solve as oppose to coming to a right answer. We also had to interview ten people in our network and get referral for those who could be interested in our services.

Interview Questions
  • Which of our company values do you align with most? Name two weaknesses and two strengths.
