I applied online. The process took 1 week. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (Huntington, NY)

Interview

I applied through Indeed and had someone reach out to me via email a few weeks later, asking to schedule an in person meeting. Upon arriving to the office, everyone was extremely friendly which made me feel welcome there! The woman I met with was a recruiter and she was very friendly and the interview was casual and flowing. She told me she’d email me the next day to set up a meeting with their managing partner. I met with him the following week. He asked me what I knew about the position, and asked a little about my background and what not. Another easy conversational and flowing interview. Overall was a great experience.

Interview

The interview process was smooth and professional. Phone interview, in-person with the team lead and final interview with division leader. The leadership team was kind and professional. I felt that they were very truthful about the position and the company. The peer group interview was fun and they were eager to accept helpful tips and tricks about recruiting. Would be a good group to work with every day.

Application

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (San Francisco, CA) in Jan 2017

Interview

3 step process. Phone interview and 2 in person. Very casual conversations discussing history, company culture, what you value in your workplace and what your interests are in a career there. They focus more heavily on personality, interpersonal skills and communication skills. This was great for someone like me who was making a career change and looking for a company to take a chance on me in a field I was completely unfamiliar with. Throughout the process, I felt like it was more of a casual conversation than an interview which helped open me up during each meeting and allowed me to feel confident in accepting the role. They value what you want not only in your career but your life as well, and it was incredibly refreshing to finally meet with a company that knows your career is not your entire life. The phone interview was about 15-20 minutes, second interview took about an hour and the third interview was 2 hours.

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual

Interview

Three Step Process with a phone interview, on-site meeting and third on-site meeting. Did not ask any necessarily unexpected questions pertaining to my experience... examples include: where you see yourself in the future, what interested you in applying to the position, what do I feel least confident about in my ability to do the job, etc. Although, a lot of uncomfortable questions were asked including what my parents do for a living, what my siblings do, what my boyfriend does, who I live with, how long I have lived with my boyfriend, how I met my boyfriend, is my boyfriend a happy person, do they like their jobs, etc. Essentially questions that were not relevant in whether I could do the job or not. When I asked why I was being asked such questions, they said they wanted to know if I could talk about uncomfortable things, which made zero sense to me, this is suppose to be a professional interview. Honestly a disappointing experience. I've never been asked so many questions that did not pertain to my skills of whether I could do the job or not.
