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.

    Interview

    The process was smooth and I was able to get all my questions answered. I felt I was well taken care of through out the process. The interviewer was very charismatic and made me feel comfortable. It felt like a very natural conversation rather than a traditional ask and answer interview.

    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.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual.

    Interview

    It was very rehearsed and not personal. They presented a slide show about the company and what I would be doing. They did not seem interested in who they were interviewing, just wanted to interview as many people as possible.

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual in April 2017.

    Interview

    It was very casual and easy. Most of it was personal and behavioral questions. At the end of the second round of interviews, they ask you to get the contact information of 10 people in your network and interview/ get 5 referrals from each.

    Interview

    Although this is one of the top ten internship, they just want you to sell their insurance products to your family and friends. If you are comfortable doing that, this is a good place.

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual.

    Interview

    Started out with personality questions to get to know you. After around 10-15 questions, it was followed by company's backstory and successes within that branch. Talked about unlimited earnings potential but you have to start off by enlisting people you know.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (Minneapolis, MN).

    Interview

    Interviewed at Internship fair and it was more of a "getting to know you" interview compared to behavioral assessment. Second round was more of a situation based interview and then they handed out a packet where you have to talk to 10 people about the job, and then get further references from those people. After that, you have to report back to the company to determine if the job is a good fit.

    • Describe a situation where you were rejected from someone.   Answer Question
