Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Prudential in June 2015.

Interview

The interview started off with light conversation after which you were asked to talk about yourself and your resume. The recruiter was really good at speaking and talked about the job, opportunity for career growth, and the next interviews. He really sold me on this job and made me feel pretty comfortable during the interview.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Prudential (Moosic, PA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Saw a job posting online, applied and within 15 minutes I was called and asked to fill out an 88 questioned questionnaire. After being told I passed, I went in for an interview a couple of days later. They gave me a tour, sat me down saying you can do this, this, and this, and be this successful. Met one or two people and was basically told I have the job as soon as they submit the papers.

    Reasons for Declining

    The whole thing seems rather shady. First, you need over a grand to pay for your own licenses and background checks with no guarantee you get the job. Also, they want you to sell to all of your friends and family. Basically, the entire position is based around commissions and if you can't sell, you're out. They kept saying I could be a millionaire, there are millionaires that work here. I don't trust anyone trying that hard for a sell just to get someone to work there.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Prudential in March 2015.

    Interview

    Spoke on the phone to set up an interview date.

    Start out the process by filling out a survey about yourself and different things of the company.

    First interview is telling you about the job and also going over your resume and how you might fit the position.

    Two more interviews are done afterward if you keep moving forward. You'd come back and meet and talk about the market segment and different area's of the job, etc.

    Then you'd come back and speak with a few people and be given a structured interview which we mostly know to include behavior questions

    The interview was brief but informative. Benefits were discussed and we talked about what kind of work I would be doing. The interview was a breeze with no difficult questions asked and it seemed that they had already decided to hire me before I interviewed.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Prudential in January 2015.

    Interview

    Contacted by recruiter. Phone interview and then in person interview. The interview was mostly personality and behavioral questions to get an idea of your networking skills. You start off part time at $10/hour during training and start full time after you get your licensing. They say they reimburse you for the licensing.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Prudential (New York, NY) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Applied through a local office, interview was fairly easy and questions asked were mainly about determining whether or not your personality matched the job. The job was full commission based and you are expected to get the licensed required on your own, but most of the fees involved are refunded once you become full time. In order to become full time however you have to write a required amount of business based on their core products.

    Interview

    Applied online through my university's website. Prudential sent an email and I completed a preliminary application. They then sent me a link to a web-based inventory which asked interview questions with multiple choice answers. Ex: If a coworker was angry at you how would you respond? A: Yell at them B: Take it to HR and so on. It only took about 20 minutes. After this I was notified that they would not be offering me the position.
