Easy Interview

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.

    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.

    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 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.
