    I applied online. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (Chicago, IL) in November 2017.

    Interview

    3 part interview process. First part is a 30 mins phone interview where they ask basic questions and talk about the position. This is as far as I’ve gotten so far.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (Pittsburgh, PA) in November 2017.

    Interview

    The interviewers I had were very nice and kind people that don’t ask you any questions that require right or wrong answers. They just try to get to know you and see if this is the right position for you.

    There were 3 rounds of interviews. The first two are just getting to know you, but after the second interview, you get an “assignment” in which you need to obtain contacts (family and friends) who might be interested in life insurance. They asked for 60 contacts for the sake of yourself to explore if this is a job you could do. You also need to complete a market survey for 6 individuals. If you do the assignment and can tolerate the work, they will give you an offer on the spot on your third interview.

    Personally I wouldn’t recommend this internship program because they look at you like dollar signs. You’re there simply to do the unpleasant work that no one else wants to do. The whole job would be cold calling your friends and loved ones so the company can profit off of and then take over your clients following your internship. They abuse the fact that many college students are extremely desperate for internships by pressuring them into turning their family and friends into clients.

    If you absolutely need an internship and don’t mind cold calling, go for it, but otherwise I wouldn’t recommend letting them take advantage of your relationships with the people you love.

    Absolutely horrible, scam. No one tells you specifics, beat around the bush and then first day ask you to call 40 of your friends/family. Would not recommend to anyone, ever

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual.

    Interview

    Basic Interview Questions during the interview process. Questions were more behavior rather than technical. I was asked what the biggest strengths I had were and if I was personable. This job requires a lot of personal interaction so if that is not your cup of tea I would recommend against it.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual.

    Interview

    There were supposed to be three interviews. The first was by phone which was basically just a screening process. I rocked it but wound up turning down the offer for another interview due to the fact that this position is not for me. The use these interns to sell insurance to their families and friends. They never come out and directly say this unless you ask about it. This may be for some people but I didn't want to damage relationships but trying to push insurance on those I care about.
