    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual in October 2015.

    Interview

    Not bad. You interview with HR, then your potential boss. You are walked through what the process of becoming a financial representative is. Pros and Cons. However, the Pros are way rosier than real life.
