    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (New York, NY) in December 2016.

    Interview

    The recruiting person I spoke to was very nice. She was friendly and made me feel very comfortable. Even though they didn't have an opportunity for me, she was going to pass my resume to other departments. Very few companies take the time to help candidates like that. Thank you Northwestern Mutual. I look forward to joining your team in the future.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (Kansas City, MO) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Basically talked about how I got to where I was and where I wanted to be. Then wanted me to get a bunch of names and numbers to prove I could do it and come back. A lot of information they gave and told me seemed to be to good to be true. After talking with many people that's exactly what it was.

    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Phoenix, AZ
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (Phoenix, AZ) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Got a call for the interview but it was not well planned out. I ended up having an interview with a different representative but immediately when they heard that I am an F-1 visa student, they rejected the position to me in a very rude manner. Could have said that before driving down to their location and done it more professionally.

    Financial Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual in October 2016.

    Interview

    It took two interviews for me to realize it was just a recruiting effort on their part. So be careful if they mine your LinkedIn page and ask you to refer people from your network for them to call on. This might not be every Branch but the Callaway Black branch certainly utilizes interviews for employment leads with no intention of hiring you.

    Financial Representative Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (Providence, RI) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Very comfortable with fair questions that required some critical thinking. Not as demanding as I thought it would be. Very nice interviewers who showed genuine interest in learning more about me. The key to this interview was that by making me feel comfortable, I felt much more comfortable providing answers to them, thus creating a win-win situation for both sides.
