Application

I applied through other source. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual

Interview

The initial contact was by email, then a video call was scheduled with an HR/Talent acquisition person, who sorts of screens to see if you have the minimum soft skills for the position and explains more about the opportunity. Then if this is successful, the person schedules you to video conference with the recruiting manager - in the meantime you receive a sort of personality test which you discuss with the manager and I think that makes the conversation richer and pertinent. The following stages depends on the outcome of this step. Overall, very engaging people and responsive.

Interview Questions
  • You vision for the future in terms of what matters to you and how you think it'll fit with the opportunity

I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual

Interview

The interview is not hard at all, they just want to hire you so you can start attracting clients. Interviewer was nice at least. I declined because the job was not consistent with the post they had on Handshake. I am not into sales and the position was all about it and had a different name in Handshake.

I applied online, and then was called back later that week to set up a phone interview. This was not much of an actual interview, but more of a way to get to know me and inform me about the company. At the end of the phone call, we set up an in person interview for later that week.

Interview Questions
  • Not a technical interview, asked about the company, your work ethic, and why you were interested in selling insurance.

Terrible Interview Process... they had a 24 yer college girl interviewed a seasoned professional. She knew nothing of what questions to ask. She have had a more seasoned pro to be the first person you meet.

I applied through college or university. The process took 1 week. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (Troy, MI) in Oct 2017

Interview

The interview process was very informal, which is not necessarily a problem. I felt very comfortable, but it also seemed that they were willing to hire almost anyone. Overall, would not recommend this place unless you are simply willing to out-compete their existing sales staff.
