    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Principal Financial Group.

    Interview

    There is commonly a screening interview which lasts about 30 minutes and an in person interview of usually 1 hour, but sometimes 2. The screening interview is with an HR recruiter and the in person is with the hiring manager and/or team.
