    Staff Accountant Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Northwestern Mutual.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and was asked to take a personality assessment before I talked to anybody. After that, I was granted an in-person interview. They asked very typical questions, such as "Tell me about yourself", "Tell me about a time when", "Why does this position interest you". Finally, I was extended an offer a few days later.

    Interview Questions
    • They asked me if I was familiar with their business model, which I was not.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I negotiated the salary slightly. They seemed flexible enough. The benefit packed was pretty good, so I didn't comment on that.

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    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.

    Interview Details

    Easy to get the interview. Signed up at a career fair, called me for a 1st round a few weeks later. Told me I had a second round, but only if I bring information for 60 of my friends who might also be interested. Basically they make you sell life insurance.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Northwestern Mutual.

    Interview Details

    Applied online. Had a phone interview first and then an in-person interview. Very straightforward, talked further about my resume and asked a few questions about the internship. Then they asked me to meet a person higher up the ladder and prepare a powerpoint presentation on why I wanted to work there. They never ended up asking me to present one. The third and final interview was face-to-face and a short 20 minute discussion after which they usually offer you a position.

    Interview Questions
    • No unexpected questions. Just prepare a little about the insurance and wealth management industry.   Answer Question

    Summer Interview

    Interview Details

    Was more of a sales pitch to me rather than an interview. Seems like they take any person who applies off the street and hands them a job. Also gave me a packet to write down 100 names of friends and family that I would later be trying to sell insurance to. Bad gig in my opinions.

    Interview Questions
    • There were very few questions, maybe 2 questions off my resume.   Answer Question
