    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (Nashville, TN).

    Interview

    Called me in for a one hour interview. I was expecting there to be more questions that there were. Instead the interviewer talked a lot as if she was selling the company to me. It all felt like a sales pitch to get you to buy insurance and sell for them.

    Easy Interview

    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.

    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.
