Average Interview

Accounting Associate Interview

Accounting Associate
Newark, NJ

I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Prudential in November 2013.

Interview Details – Got the interview from school. for final round interview there were 3 half hour long interviews with manager.

Interview Question – Ok so there wasnt anything unexpected, the usual behavioral questions ... but remember its not up to the managers to hire you! If they like you that dsnt mean youre going to get a job. Ultimately, it is HR that is going to hire you. So while the managers are wrtting in the blue book, make sure your giving them relevant examples of expericnces that pertain to the job description.

What was a difficult decision you had to make in the past 6 months?

Team Lead, Accounting Interview

Anonymous Employee
Newark, NJ

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at Prudential.

Interview Details – Compared to other companies that I have recently interviewed this was more standard and routine. You may go for a 1st round interview with two people and get called back for a second interview meeting two more. Length of time meeting with people may be a total of 3 hours. However, making a hiring decision could be drawn out

Interview Question – Questions are typical behavioral questions such as "tell me a time you led a project" or "when did you need to collaborate to get a goal accomplished".   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Not much room for negotation but terms were similar to what I was leaving behind.

Difficult Interview

Investment Operation Associate Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Newark, NJ

I applied through college or university and the process took 6 days - interviewed at Prudential in October 2013.

Interview Details – The recruiter contacted me the day before interview and scheduled the next day. There was miss-communication between HR and interviewer. Nobody from the department knew that they have been scheduled for an interview with me. It was embarrass at first, but then they had 3 people interviewing me.

Interview Question – 3 interviewers take their turn to interview. One of them asked me many interesting questions. Although the questions were hard and out of my expectation, I had learned some experience. Those questions focus on the negative side such as "any goal that you did not achieve?", " what did you do when you got a bad grade?", "Have you have any difficult decision that you had to make a choice?"....   Answer Question
