Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual.

Interview

Interview seemed very jumbled and unorganized throughout the entire process. I had accepted the offer a semester prior to starting the internship before realizing the company was not well prepared for an internship program. Management was not professional or personable. I would highly recommend for those interested in this position to reconsider as the company did put more importance on the internship over school work.

    It was an internship during the school year, which I could not do because I got another after-class job.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (New York, NY) in November 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was pretty laid back. Arrived at one of their offices in NYC and a financial advisor took me into his office and just had a casual conversation with me. After talking to him about a typical day on the job and how he got into the position he is in today, I was taken by the recruiter who had recruited me into a separate room. Here I was asked STAR questions such as What was time I failed and how did I respond to it and name by biggest achievement. Overall very easy interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (Dallas, TX) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Went to an informational where they spoke about the company, the duties as an intern, and what to expect.
    After the informational, there was a one on one interview with HR.
    Once that`s over, we had to survey/interview 5 of our friends and family asking them if they would ever consider purchasing health insurance or accept financial services.
    After this, we were to meet up with the HR again debriefing our experience with the five friends/family members. Once that was over, we had to go and interview past interns which was really good, because it helped you understand what you can expect and what was good and bad about working there.
    Lastly, you speak with the Chief Leader Developer and interview with him.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual.

    Interview

    Very basic, asked about me, talked about what I was alike. Several behavioral questions. Felt like they would have accepted anyone. As soon as the interview was over they transitioned into a job offer. A lot of the interview was them explaining what I would be doing if I was to accept the role.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual.

    Interview

    Typical 3-stage process. First was a fairly basic interview to get a feel for the candidate and try to to sell them the company and why its great to work there. Second interview was fairly similar, but they delved more into their sales process and gave me a worksheet to see if I can get referrals from people I personally know.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual in October 2016.

    Interview

    Lengthy, took multiple weeks to complete. Seems like a scheme that they'll use your contacts that are mandatory for you to provide no matter if you get the job or not.
