    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (Lancaster, PA) in July 2017.

    The interview process is pretty extensive. You'll go through 3 in-person interviews and be asked to do some work for the second and third interviews before you're offered the internship. You also have to pass a PA Life & Health exam before starting your internship.

    Interview

    I signed up through school job fair. It was simple process where I had to create a powerpoint on myself. People were extremely nice. Seemed as if they just wanted more people to come on, not if I was qualified.

    Interview

    Was reached out to for a phone interview which was set up. The phone interview will decide if you get to come in for a face to face. The face to face interview was more of a job overview than interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual in May 2017.

    Interview

    What does your family do? (initial thought: WTF? Relevant to work?)
    3 words to describe yourself
    What is your greatest achievement?
    3 things you gained from part-time job?
    What are some strengths you describe yourself as a professional?

        This so-called internship program is a very cunning way for Northwestern to exploit college students. They want you to come up a list of 100 people to sell their products. You get 1000 for joining the program, 500-1000 bonus, and the rest is from commission. This is why I hate sales job. I don’t like lying to people to earn a living. The commission I potentially earn will be from selling products which may not benefit the clients at all. Nice try. Northwestern.

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual.

    Interview

    Recruiter called me after we had representatives on campus. We schedule a Skype interview that lasted for about half an hour. No difficult questions, mostly behavioral and questions about how I handled challenges in the past. A few days after, they emailed me for a second on-site interview. After finding out this was mostly a sales internship, I withdrew from the candidacy.
