    Interview

    They show off high compensation that is almost impossible to get, and expect you to give them a list of contacts so they can abuse your connections. Its not the best financial advisor position.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual.

    Interview

    Lengthy process with a lot of information. Met with 4-6 different people over the course of a couple weeks. Everyone was very pleasant and engaging, but i felt like i was asked the same questions by everyone. Plus, having to meet with so many different people and constantly take days off of my other job was a hassle.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (Wellesley, MA) in December 2017.

    Interview

    Very laid back, some basic behavioral questions involved. Recruiter mainly wants to get to know your background and feel out how personable you are. Overall pretty casual process. Second step is a more applied process where you meet with people and ask them some basic questions and they ask how it went.

    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.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (Hunt Valley, MD) in November 2017.

    Interview

    I had two meetings which led to me being given an assignment that required me to survey 15 family members and family friends. Once you complete the survey and they deem it successful, then they offer you the internship and you begin cold calling clients from your survey.
