Interview Details

They hired through my college career website. I received a response that week. They asked very straightforward questions about your background and why you are interesting in the position. During the first round they asked you to choose five adjectives to describe yourself. In the second round they told you more about the position and asked why you are interested.

    Interview Details

    I applied through school career website and had on-campus interview after about a month. It took me only 2 weeks for first interview, and asked me about basic questions regarding my resume and experiences. Also, they asked me 5 behavioral questions, it was pretty hard questions to answer unless prepared.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Prudential in May 2012.

    Interview Details

    Most of the interview involved behavior related questions. Some questions related to excel skills and how to manage large amounts of data (tables, charts, pivots). The interview was less formal than expected and was more geared towards getting to know the candidates background.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Prudential in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    Applied for the job online and then a month later received a e-mail stating they wanted to bring me in for an interview. Went in for the interview and met with the director and manager of the position. Interview went well with the director. She praised Prudential as a good company to work for and was very interested. Manager was not so enthusiastic and very hard to read. After a week, I called the HR representative and did not get so I left a message, I called back three days later and did not reach him. After another week I emailed him and no response. I kinda figured I did not get the job. A friend of mine who work on the floor informed me that they went with someone in house. After a another week, I received a email from the HR rep stating they went with another person.

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Prudential in July 2011.

    Interview Details

    Applied online directly thru Prudential.com.
    Standard interview questions by the book.
    Least challenging or interesting interview I have ever done.
    Received offer 2 weeks after interview.
    Expect a thorough background check from LexusNexus and urinalysis thru Quest Diagnostics: the background check took over 2 weeks for me and was patently annoying because of my long work history.

    The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Prudential in October 2009.

    Interview Details

    The interview consisted of a 1:1 interview in which I was asked some general questions pertaining to my resume and field of interest. Then I had to take a test that tested my mathematical abilities. Though that test was pretty simple and was not great shakes. Then i was told that i would be contacted for a personality test.
