How long does it take to get hired from start to finish at Northwestern Mutual? What are the steps along the way?
In the El Paso area it will be 4 interviews. I was told, out of 30 interview; only one would get hired. Take it as you will, it sounds like a scam.
The interview process is going to be different for each network and further, for each individual office. My process was rather lengthy (6+ weeks) that included a thorough introduction to Northwestern Mutual and how they work with clients. It included a phone screen, multiple in-person interviews and I was even invited on a company-sponsored retreat before being fully on-boarded.
That being said, there is a tendency to over-promise on expected compensation and to shy away from exactly how much work will be needed to make the position work. It's a phenomenal opportunity for the right person.
Horrible. Worst job ever. Managers are rude. Pay is lowsy. Never paid fees to work in my life but did it here. They are an all around scam. They treat employees and customer horribly and are a SCAM. Avoid like the PLAGUE. The only jobs available in most states are sales. Its a giant PYRAMID SCHEME for customers and employees. I hope they go out of business really soon. The world will be a better place when they do.
What would you suggest Northwestern Mutual management do to prevent others from leaving?
You won’t read this or do anything, but NEWER REPS NEED A “BASE” of some sort! If I just had insurance and a base salary to hold me over until I could see the real rewards while not financially collapsing myself. It seems like they check up on you to see if you’re ready to quit yet. Be honest about how we will be getting our leads- that we will be calling friends and family and everyone we might know for a referral, and they will be running their own business, and starting it from 0-scratch. Position seemed way too Sales-y, and I know none of my friends or family wanted to be bothered my first week of starting a business. Seems like they are so used to a low rentention they kick people out early so not too much $ is spent on them.
Experience with sales, in must have communication skills, patience, and honesty in this field of work much training.
