    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (Lake Charles, LA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    First contact came from a friend who works in the office, wanting to know if I was curious in talking with a recruiter about the position. Talked on the phone with recruiter the next morning and scheduled a meeting with them the following week. Meeting went very well and was conducted very professionally. Our first meeting consisted of basic interview questions, as well as a short video about a day in the life of a Financial Rep. My next interview was the following week, where I met with the same recruiter and another person and talked more about what the job would be like. Overall the process went very well and was the most professional interview I have ever been in.

I look forward to joining your team in the future.

    Summer Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (Seattle, WA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Had an informational skype session then went in for an interview in the office. The interview was a little awkward and they didn't get back to me even though I felt pretty good about it. I think this internship is a little bit of a scam meant to get your family and friends as clients and when I said I was uncomfortable with that then they lost interest.
