    Interview

    They came to my school campus to recruit. I requested information and was contacted by phone and then through email to set up an appointment for an interview at their downtown location. I was interviewed by a recruiter and it was very easy and everyone there was friendly. I also took a personality test before I came and at the interview we spent most the time going over that and how it applied to the job?

    Invite for was warm and friendly. The work environment looked quite boring. The interviewer was nice but she asked lots of redundant questions that really fail to capture the true potential in an applicant.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (Melville, NY) in April 2012.

    Interview

    The recruiter had called on the phone to offer me a Skype interview after explaining what her company was all about. The recruiter seems very nice and easy going. I did the Skype interview a week later and spoke with the recruiter about what I wanted out of life and what I was willing to do to achieve it. She begins to explain the internship after seeing that I was qualified for the job. The internship is about selling their insurance to your family, friends, and acquaintances. You make your money in commission. It is really easy to get the internship, from what I get they basically will hire anyone. The offices are very nice, but the job is somewhat a scam.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (Lombard, IL) in March 2012.

    Interview

    They pretty much give a group presentation about their products and the company. It's not a one on one interview at all. They then give you a packet that you must have filled out and turn back in at a later date if you wish to get the internship.
