    Thorough process, I was late in the interview process but it did not feel that way at all. The recruiters were understanding to my situation and made it a very educational process.

    Average Interview

    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (Chicago, IL) in August 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process begins by a person from NWM emailing you to set up a phone interview. If you move on, its a group meeting about what NWM can provide. They give you an assignment of contacting your friends and family to set up your clientele to begin your internship. I hated the idea of having to use my inner circle to make money. No clients, no money.

    Distribution Finance Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (Milwaukee, WI) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Pretty standard corporate interview process. Phone interview with HR, then in person interview with 2-3 team members. Mostly behavioral/background questions but a few accounting related technical questions. HR was friendly but the team was less professional. Seemed very much in a hurry, speaking quickly and with a poor attitude. Interviewer made little eye contact and acted like it was a huge drag to be interviewing someone.

    Interview process wasn't very long. I started off with an initial interview with my recruiter. She asked very simple and personal questions nothing major. I then meet with the college director for a interview. And I had one more with him then he offered me the internship. I took about 2 weeks total maybe less.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual in August 2017.

    Interview

    There is a total of 3 interviews: 1st with a recruiter who goes over your experience and the comapny; 2nd is with head of the regional office - this interview seemed to be more of a sales pictch where they tried to convince interviewees to take the position (It seemed to much of a hard sell to me); 3rd would be with the marketing head where they go over which markets you could target to hit sales goals, etc.
