    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (New York, NY) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I got a call from the interviewer which scheduled me for the onsite interview. The office was in Manhattan near the D train subway station in the Chinatown which is not a clean neighborhood. The interview lasted about 40 minutes as the interviewer asked less about me and talked more about the company, products, and the work environment as I have explained her my knowledge about their business and she was highly impressed by it. Then after the interview, I was given three handouts in which I need 21 people to fill out seven surveys. They want to explore your contacts to sell the insurance and their products. They pay $1000 stipend to interns for the 10-week program in summer which is very cheap. And they don't sponsor H-1 B, so if you are an international student don't even waste your time for the interview.

Very conversational lasted about 45 minutes and presented the personality test to me. She went over what the test results were and how they were good for sales lead role and called me back for a second interview.

He went over what the role was, how the structure of the company and then broke down in a presentation the numbers of what is needed to succeed.
