Application Details

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

Interview Details

Straight foreword interview, asked mostly questions about myself and why I'm interested. Mostly a behavioral interview with straightforward questions. No curveballs. I applied through the career website at my college and they got back to me within a couple of days. The interviewer was very friendly and easy to talk to. One of the easier interviews I've done. It was 30 minutes over the phone

    Interview Details

    I went through 3 interviews that were pretty simple for me to complete. They spend as much time selling you on the job as you spend selling them. I initially met them at a campus career fair. From there they reached out to me and asked me to come in for an interview. At the end they asked me to make a presentation to them on why they should hire me.

    Went to the first interview. It was very basic and friendly. They just wanted to get to know you before the second interview. There are a lot of questions that require you to use adjectives to describe yourself.

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Northwestern Mutual.

    Interview Details

    I meet a recruiter during a career fair and she invited me in for an informal interview the next week. It was pretty casual and just to learn about me and for me to learn about the company. She invited me back and I met with the director of their college program. He asked me basis questions about myself and my experience. Then I had to complete market surveys for five people to see if I could use my network to meet clients. For the final interview you discuss the results of your market surveys. They just want to know if you did well and enjoyed it because it's very similar to the job.

    Everyone I met there was extremely friendly and great to talk to.
