    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (San Diego, CA) in February 2010.

    Interview

    It is a three interview process. First you meet with the Recruiting Manager and tells you about the company and what you will do. The second interview you meet the Branch Manager and they ask you to have your friends and family fill out surveys and test how well entrenched you are in your local market. The last interview you meet with the Branch Manager again and the people who will be training you. The trainers are apart of the interview process to see if you are able to be trained. During this time the Branch Manager reviews your surveys and your potential selling market and if they believe you can succeed you get an offer.

    Overall not my cup of tea. Too much micro-managing in finding new clients to sell to. Too focused on selling to friends and family and not on creating new networks.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (Colorado Springs, CO) in January 2009.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter and interviewed. There was an aptitude test required before the interview. After the interview, there was another more thorough aptitude test for personality and sales skills. A score below means there will be no offer. Further interv. with managing director and managing partner, plus informational sessions with 2-3 veteren reps. They require Life and Health + 6 and 63 if you are offered a contract. There is a small stipend during the 3-4 week training process and they reimburse you for a passed test. NMFN is the finest company of its type in the nation but the job is 100% commission and ought to be 90% insurance product sales in the first 2 years in order to make it. They require 2-3 meetings a week, Managing director, mentor, and monday morning accountability sales reporting meeting. The average veteren rep makes 150K+ per year. Top reps make 300-400k.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (Wall, NJ) in March 2010.

    Interview

    I was contacted by the company, who had received my resume through a recent career fair, about coming into the office for an interview. I set up the interview and followed through with it even after researching them online. I would have to admit the interview process was as awful as described, never would i think that a potential employer would ask the interviewee for a list of potential leads during the interview process. Very unprofessional, I was offered the position but respectfully declined

    100% commission, very unprofessional demeanor, i felt they were more interested in filling their own client books rather than filling the open position at the company

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (Sacramento, CA) in May 2011.

    Interview

    Phone interview was very brief. It consisted of briefly referencing the resume, and then called in for a 1:1 interview. The 1:1 interview went through the basics of going more in-depth into the resume, talking about myself and skills. A follow up questionnaire was required to determine if I was a "right fit".
