    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Prudential.

    Interview Details

    Asked to apply from my universities recruiting page. First interview was on campus and very technical, but it varies depending on the person. About a week later I received note that I was selected for a second interview with Prudential's capital group. They flew me to Chicago for a night and took very good care of me. The second interview consisted of 5 interviews at their office. Great experience overall.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Prudential in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Financial Advisor Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Prudential.

    Interview Details

    It was a pretty short process. You first met with an hiring manager and the interview was more like a conversation. You then had to do your top 200 people that you can contact to start your business. Make sure you have close to 200 even if they are not potential customers. Then you meet the division manager and you get a background check.

    Manager, Information Systems Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Prudential in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    Had multiple interviews with this company progressing through various stages. Interviews went well. Started with applying online, then followed by a phone call from a recruiter, scheduled the call, went through the initial screening process, then call with the hiring manager.

    Asked the standard questions which went easily, then progressed to a second more comprehensive phone interview. Had alot of gotcha type questions but overall the feedback was good, kept scheduling and rescheduling follow up meetings and suddenly zero follow up or feed back. At the same time getting calls from them about other departments and kept interviewing.

    This company never gives follow up and they take months to progress through anything. The lack of follow up is epic, and they quite frankly can't make basic decisions probably due to a lack of clarity on what exactly they're looking for. Definitely not a great interview process and not recommended if you're looking for a company with a culture that's welcoming.

    Overall I think this company is behind the curve, but great practice while you're actively interviewing with other companies. Chances are you will have other offers before anyone bothers to follow up with you....that's if they bother to.

    Interview Questions
    • What root cause analysis tools or process unique to your employer were you guys using? I thought this was ridiculous because no company would want you divulging their business processes. The interviewer should know better then to ask such question.   Answer Question
