    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Northwestern Mutual in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    My interview process with Northwestern was very relaxed and low-stress. However, this might not be the case for all Northwestern Mutual branches.

    My first interview was very structured with your typical interview questions and my second interview was more about answering my questions about the internship

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Northwestern Mutual in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview was very smooth, more of a one on one conversation then a traditional interview. The recruiter I worked with was very nice and offered constructive interview feedback when we completed. (This interview was conducted through a university for the initial purpose of gaining interviewing experience.)

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Northwestern Mutual in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I went to a couple of information sessions and talked with the recruiters. Setup a meeting with them at their offices. It was the basic questions of 'tell me about yourself' and a run down of your resume. The interviewer was very nice and did not add any stress by asking tough questions. The intern position involves providing life and disability insurance to potential clients and the pay is based on commission.

    The hiring process seemed a bit mechanical or robotic. They get you in and out as soon as possible. They don't seem to really want to get to know the person, but rather how that person is going to make money for the company. The culture seemed a little bit like a "boys club."

    Interview Details

    The interview process was a series of three interviews, each becoming increasingly more in depth until I had convinced them I was the right man for the job. They looked at my history, my connections, my parents jobs, among other things. It required a fingerprinting, background check, and the likes.

    Interview Questions
    • I was asked how I would go about cold calling someone, which took me by surprise.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I was given no negotiation, as it was the standard college-student internship position
