I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual in Jul 2020

Interview

After applying online, set up a 30 minute phone interview with HR within the first week. Then a technical round was setup within a weeks time. Skype video call with three interviewers who took turns to ask questions. Each of them would ask questions from their area of expertise. They have follow up questions on most of the things. Mostly were theoretical questions and none were problem solving.

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual in Jun 2020

Interview

Contacted by a recruiter and talked briefly about my background and qualifications. Followed by a online assessment with three programming questions(in basically any language) that was fairly simple and straightforward. Third and final phase was a video group interview with three different engineers. The conversation went nice and smooth, everyone was nice and easy to talk to . Most of the questions were about behavioral, situational, background, and cultural fit. The recruiter was very helpful all the way, until the third phase where originally she was going to contact me about the results and feedbacks two days after the interview. I was not contacted and wrote emails to check in with her but did not get a response. Two weeks from the interview i got the rejection letter and again wrote an email asking if there were any feedback. Still did not get a response. Some feedback would be very helpful.

I applied through an employee referral The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (Franklin, WI) in May 2017

Interview

I had applied to NM last year and was rejected, but they kept my application on file. Last month, I was contacted by a Talent Recruiter who asked me to formally apply for a different position. I then did a phone interview with the hiring manager. After this, I did an in-person interview which was with a group of people who I would now end up working for. I was then offered a verbal offer, which I accepted and then accepted their written offer. This was by far the best experience I've ever had at a job interview.
