Application

I applied through college or university – interviewed at Northwestern Mutual.

Interview

They seemed really eager to have me join their team, but then you realize that they are eager for *anyone* to join their team because the role of the intern is to get 100 of their friends and family to buy insurance. I don't understand why they have everyone pretense in going through their interview process when the only question that matters to them is whether you have 100 contacts.

    The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Northwestern Mutual (North Andover, MA (US)).

    Interview

    I submitted a small profile to a recruiting site and was contacted in less than 24 hours. It seemed desperate to call back that soon. I was then asked to come down for a group interview in one of the offices where 6 of us were shown a PowerPoint and then given separate time with the recruiter for one on one time.

    Interview

    Interview was an average one. It was done by Skype, but they told me that I would be selling insurance only to my friends and family which was a turn off. Then had to complete a personality quiz which they reviewed.

    Skype interview which included the standard interview questions. Then there was an in person interview which followed the same style. Overall, fairly simple process. Offer was given within a week. I interned with them for 1 summer.

    I applied online. The process took 6 daysinterviewed at Northwestern Mutual (Wellesley, MA (US)) in March 2015.

    Interview

    So this was a really chill and easy process. They will call you on the phone and talk to you for a bit, then invite you into the office. Once in the office they will give you a brief 30 minute fit interview, mostly explaining the internship. I did not pursue it further because they ask you to fill out a sheet with your potential market aka your friends and family. I did not feel comfortable doing that.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Northwestern Mutual.

    Interview

    I met some recruiters at a career fair in school, they seemed to be having some trouble attracting interested people, but we had a good talk and they pursued an interview. I talked with the regional intern director on the phone for 40 minutes or so, she got back to me a few weeks later and offered an interview at the prospective office. That second part was a huge waste of time, they were trying to sell the internship more, I don't think they even asked any questions.
