Life Product Specialist Interview

Life Product Specialist
Plymouth, MN

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Prudential.

Interview Details – I applied and was asked several days later to do some additional testing. Included some fast paced coding questions, a mock calling portion, and a personality assessment.

Interview Question – The most difficult portion was the coding. Had 20 minutes to answer 10 questions that required table reading and code interpretation. I found it difficult because the position was supposed to be entry-level.   Answer Question

Manager of Financial Services Interview

Manager of Financial Services

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2+ months - interviewed at Prudential.

Interview Details – Typically 3-5 interviews with territory management and local management. Some are very structured asking about past experience, most are more focused on current skills and vision. They also have you do a variety of background and drug tests to make sure your not a criminal which I guess is good. Although the education and employment verification process is very slow.

Interview Question – How will you focus on hiring a diverse team?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There is no negotiation, they only offer you 1 option and you either take it or leave it. There is no transition money given either which can be very difficult if moving from another company.

Actuarial Associate Interview

Actuarial Associate

Interviewed at Prudential

Interview Details – Phone interview given by a nice HR. Take me 2 weeks to receive it. About 20 mins. Mostly went through the resume and some behavioral questions, say group project experience or teamwork experience. Receive the notification for onsite interview at the next day. The onsite one will be given by 5 actuaries and 1 product manager, which sounds quite tough.

Interview Question – No, quite normal   Answer Question

Financial Professional Associate Interview

Financial Professional Associate
Downers Grove, IL

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Prudential in March 2014.

Interview Details – They are very friendly but it is completely commission. Personally, I didn't really mind that is completely commission. But, I really did not like how you have to sell to your family and friends. They were extremely competitive in selling life insurance. It wasn't a good fit for me. Also, you have to pass a bunch of tests before you even work. Essentially, to work for Prudential you need to be all in from the start which is a big commitment from a company that doesn't offer you everything from the start.

Interview Question – Nothing really. What do you look for in a company?   View Answer

Reason for Declining – I didn't want to sell life insurance to my family and friends.

Financial Professional Associate Interview

Financial Professional Associate
Boca Raton, FL

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Prudential in June 2014.

Interview Details – They had me take an online personality test to see if I was suited for a sales job. During the interview they were most interested in whether or not I knew a lot of high net-worth individuals who could become my clients. They were also interested in whether I was a good networker.

Interview Question – How will you build your book of business?   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – I declined because they'd sponsor me for a Series 6 license to sell mutual funds, and I want a Series 7 license to also be able to sell individual stocks.
