I applied online. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual

Interview

Job description was very misleading. It was revealed 15 minutes into the interview that compensation was 100% commission-based, and that the role was essentially a sales role, with the aim of selling life insurance to one's own network. A hard pass.

Total Scam. Life Insurance Salesman would be a more accurate job title. Rely on you recruiting your friends and family to make any money. Pray on fresh college graduates and lie to you about how much you'll make your first year.

Interview Questions
  • Do you have any friends or family you could sell our service too?

Interview

There was a phone interview followed by an online assessment. There were a few things about the process that were slightly off putting to me. It appeared that the main interest of the company is to see how many contacts you've made in your life and then if you're willing to exploit that for your gain and ultimately theirs. That didn't seem quite right to me.

I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (New York, NY) in May 2015

Interview

It was a brief phone interview which lasted around 15 - 20 minutes. However, do not apply for North Western Mutual, since all they ask you to do is to give phone calls to other people and attend the meeting to writing down notes. That's literally all.
