    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual.

    Interview

    Met a recruiter at a career fair. There were three main phases of the interview. First, they asked questions regarding your character and beliefs. Culture is a big thing with this company. The second and third ask you to do a marketing survey to determine whether or not you have enough support around you in order to be successful.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (Waterloo, IA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    They are extremely friendly and passionate and as long as you are too and complete the market survey and you worksheet they give you, you're set. It was very laid back and they made you feel welcome, not like you were an outsider.

    Interview

    I was impressed with the thoroughness of the Interview. It was in three parts and included a test drive assignment. Asked everything from my childhood and family background to personal social relationships. Seems like they really do seek out high level candidates. I am a little skeptical about how they want you to use your own social contacts for sales.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (Logan, UT) in March 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was very in depth for me. I had two phone call interviews. After the phone call interviews I got called into a group interview with two other interns so there was three of us all together. We asked questions and got the internship explained to us very well in depth to see if it was what we wanted to do. Then he scheduled is for a final interview the following week to allow us time to think on it and prepare a powerpoint presentation as well of why they should pick us in order to be part of the internship program. During this period we also did 10 surveys of friends and referrals in order to give us an idea of who we will be working with and how people answer. Very well put together process in order to find out who is serious about attempting this internship.

    Application

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

    Interview

    Phone Interview. Interview was nice and offered a lot of information about the position and what it entails. Typical behavioral questions. Took about 40 minutes. The questions only lasted about 15 minutes and then we talked about compensation and how all of the interns get mentored and have a lot of guidance as long as they want it during the summer. Emphasized that hard workers can make a lot and have the most success.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (Santa Monica, CA).

    Interview

    I thought it was extremely unprofessional when during the interview process, they asked me to refer 5 of my classmates for the same position. I still have 2 steps left in the process, and my friends have already been contacted. I thought this was extremely rude.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (Ann Arbor, MI) in February 2017.

    Interview

    An initial interview was conducted with one of the Northwestern Mutual recruiters. I can't speak for all of the recruiters, but mine was exceptionally profession, kind, and polite. The screening interview is rather simple - mostly just to get to know you as a person. If you progress to the next round, you will sit down with a College Unit Director who will as you a number of challenging questions.
