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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (Chicago, IL) in December 2015.

    Interview

    There were 7 rounds of interviews which included meeting everyone in the leadership team, as well as other co-workers that are new in the business. This was especially helpful because I was able to get a grasp on what the job is like for both someone early in their career and also from someone that is well established. Also, I was able to meet everyone in senior leadership and formulate a relationship with them early on, which has only helped the early stage of my career.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (New York, NY) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I got a call from the interviewer which scheduled me for the onsite interview. The office was in Manhattan near the D train subway station in the Chinatown which is not a clean neighborhood. The interview lasted about 40 minutes as the interviewer asked less about me and talked more about the company, products, and the work environment as I have explained her my knowledge about their business and she was highly impressed by it. Then after the interview, I was given three handouts in which I need 21 people to fill out seven surveys. They want to explore your contacts to sell the insurance and their products. They pay $1000 stipend to interns for the 10-week program in summer which is very cheap. And they don't sponsor H-1 B, so if you are an international student don't even waste your time for the 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.
