Easy Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (Chicago, IL (US)) in May-2017.

Interview

I was called and interviewed over the phone after expressing interest to a financial planning internship. This position was heavily dependent on commission and I became uninterested. Upon expressing my disinterest I was still emailed back for an in-person interview.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (Grand Rapids, MI (US)) in April-2013.

    Interview

    The process was to be as expected. Efficient and thorough. I had an initial screening in person with someone at Northwestern's downtown campus, then had another group interview about a week later. They offered me the position, but ultimately I didn't want sell insurance. You build your own network, so I especially didn't want to start by trying to sell insurance to all my friends and family. Definitely could be a good role for a true sales person.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (New York, NY (US)) in October-2011.

    Interview

    First interview was over the phone, second interview in person with HR, after second interview they email you some links to a series of tests/ questionnaires. They will ask you to disclose all of your personal assets/liabilities.

    The person from HR was nice, personable, and well informed about the different "levels" within the company. The second interview was scripted.

    Pay is 100% commission

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (New York, NY (US)) in September-2011.

    Interview

    I received a cold call from a recruiter and was asked to come in for an interview. The interview was very invasive of my personal and family life although both interviewers were very nice. The culture in the building seemed to be varied. There were people in suits and ties, and people in jeans and t-shirts in the same office. I was asked to fill out some forms before the interview and ultimately declined to continue the process.
