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

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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (Troy, MI) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Phone interview then they follow up with an on-site interview. They also send over a personality quiz that you will have to take online before meeting in person. The questions asked during the on-site were your basic interview questions. As long as you are personable and appear to be normal you should get an offer in that moment. They take almost everyone and anyone.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    They do not give you any chance to negotiate. It is a commission based position and that is how it will always be.

    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.

    Average Interview

    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.

    Interview Questions

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

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (Memphis, TN) in March 2017.

    Interview

    It was a group interview, which was not mentioned until you got there. Caught me off guard, it was a lecture rather than an interview. There was no possible way to get to know someone with 5 other people in the room. Spent the entire time going over a slide show of "Why we are the best." Overall it was good interview experience. Said they were interviewing 100 other candidates in the same setting and then would go back and choose 5-10 to call back for a second interview. Very interesting process they have overall.
