This is a typical commission only job, so you get what ever you put in. However, training is top notch. You get all the tools you need to be successful and you receive great support when needed. All you need to do is ask.

they’re more concerned about getting clients and financial reps. very pushy. made me feel uncomfortable. lots of cold calls, even tho I was promised no calling. Don’t waste your time here unless you want to be a financial rep.

Absolute Garbage, at no time did i feel confident that the people at NWM knew anything about financial planning, all based around selling insurance products even if there is no need from the client. Simply transactional. Terrible skills and no real knowledge.

I worked the financial representative internship at Northwestern Mutual. They sold it as a "financial planning" internship and a "head start into your career as a financial advisor". It was life insurance salesman. That was all I could sell with it being an internship. They don't have a call list for you either. You are just told to hit up your friends and family.

Job isn't easy by any means but it is rewarding. Have to work hard on building relationships and developing your book of business. You are a business owner so you have to treat your day-to-day like one.
