    Interview

    Skype interview, group interview, homework assignment, presentation. The worst part was the homework assignment. They make you get 100 referrals to give to them and interview 7 people about their experiences with the financial advisory/insurance industry. However I did not give the full 100 and they were ok with that. They also have a lot of licensing and extras to complete once you accept an offer there.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual.

    Interview

    Interview process was really easy. They ask you a bunch of questions about your goals and what you want to accomplish. Basic interview questions about where you see yourself in the next 3 years. They keep it very laid back so you don't feel uncomfortable. The energy in the office is great. The entire interview lasts about an hour. The overall experience was good.
