Financial Representative Interview

Neutral Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied in-person. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (San Antonio, TX).

Interview

Interviewer's nice, professional and communicative. They guide you through the process on which the company is based. But for people that have not been previously exposed to a financial industry environment it may be a more difficult to get a full grasp of what everything really means and how it works.

    Pretty long process, started in June and started in September. They have you do these market surveys which should give you a good idea if selling to your friends and family is right for you.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual.

    Interview

    I was called for an interview about two weeks after submitting my resume. The first interview went fairly well. However, my second interview with the manager made it very clear that this is a sales related internship. This has nothing to do with a finance major. They just want you to bring them clients.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (Stamford, CT) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Very welcoming and personal interview process. Both the secretary and hiring manager were exceptional people and really seemed to be interested in helping me. Although the commute down to Stamford was a hassle, the people in the office were very supportive and nothing bad could be said about the process as a whole.

    Interview

    I walked in the day before the training started - they had recruited people for months prior to this. If you have a good background they'll take you. If you don't, they'll take you anyway because there's such a high turnover in this company. No experience required.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (Leawood, KS).

    Interview

    They act like it's a "highly selective" process where "only 1 out of every 35 candidates gets an offer". Really, i was just the 1 that was dumb enough to fall for their shenanigans. the other 34 were much smarter than me and left the interview process.
