Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual in August 2016.

Interview

Can be a long interview process; there is the initial interview that is more of an informational meeting, then there are 3-4 "onboarding" interviews. Each interview came with additional "homework" ranging from market surveys to establishing your target market, etc.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (Fort Lauderdale, FL) in August 2017.

    Interview

    One hour long. Great questions back and forth. Said I could make 300k in 5 years. Not sure how realistic that is but I am hopeful. I liked that they said they can sponsor me for getting my licenses and thats a huge benefit in my opinion. I am excited to see how it goes and everything i can learn from them.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (Kalamazoo, MI) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Easy, multiple interviews with a recruiter and the mentor you will be working with. The recruiter will look at your personality and goals. The mentor will want you to make a list of educated questions and talk to you about the company/position. Then they will want you to prospect people you know, mostly your family, as a test. This is where said wtf and turned it down.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (San Luis Obispo, CA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Fairly straightforward. First call with HR/Screening rep to get basic information. Second call with Senior Financial Planner who went over detailed information regarding internship and responsibilities. I would not recommend this opportunity because it is 100% insurance sales through your own friends and family.

    I was at a conference where I recieved an on site interview. I sat with the recruiter and was asked very basic behavioral questions and asked about classes Ive taken that would help me with the position. Interview was pretty easy but by the end of it, I wasn't even sure if I still wanted to work for the company.
