I applied through college or university. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (Lubbock, TX) in Feb 2014

Interview

I met a recruiter from Northwestern Mutual on campus at the career fair, and had an interview the following day. During the interview I was offered a second interview at a Fort Worth branch and never heard anything back. The recruiter informed me that if you are hired, you're paired up with a mentor in your office to meet with once a week to keep you on track.

Interview Questions
  • When everyone you call in a day says "no," what will be your motivation to keep calling and trying to sell insurance?

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (Pittsburgh, PA) in Jul 2013

Interview

They opened a new branch close to where I was living. They brought me into the new branch for the initial interview. It was just the basic "get to know you" interview. I then completed a personality test online before the next step. A week later they brought me back to that branch to speak with the regional manager in a more in depth interview regarding the position. Finally they had me into downtown Pittsburgh for a career day. This was a four hour process where we got to hear about 4 to 5 personal experiences of employees who had been there a while.

Interview Questions
  • Between the second and third interview, they gave out a handbook that required some practice on what the job would entail. This portion of the interview process was the most difficult because you have to step out of your comfort zone.

I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual

Interview

Something about yourself. Details on the resume. The whole process was pretty comfortable. The really hard part is the interviewer would give you a form and fill in contact information of 10 people into it. I think it's pretty fair . Anyway, they are recruiting sales person and I think get to know how to contact people, whether familiar or not is the first step. The recruiter who interviewed me was a really nice lady. But for some reason, I give up the chance of second round interview.

Interview Questions
  • Find 10 person's contact information and give them to a insurance firm.

The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual in Jun 2012

Interview

Was interviewed in a very nice high rise office. The questions asked were about my future goals as far as where did I want to be in the next 5 years. Also I was explained the well known history of the company and the stability the company offered for the "right" candidate. The office was very professional, a call center environment and was asked if I was prepared to make 50-100 phone calls a day and did I have a problem with being rejection.

Fill out questionaire and discuss answers. There is a 2nd process but I decided not to do it. You have to study for a test, probably to obtain the license but didn't have time to study. Lady was real nice, wasn't intimidating, she real real friendly, offered me coffee and water.
