    Senior Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Newark, NJ
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Newark, NJ
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 days - interviewed at Prudential in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and was contacted by Staffing specialist within ten days. An interview was set up to meet with three members of the group I would be working for, roughly a half hour with each. Interview questions pertained to the job and was more of a conversation as opposed to a strict interview. It was a conversation detailing areas the group needed help and how I could help contribute to the group. Everyone was very nice, very honest, and was one of the more positive interviews I've ever had. No trick questions, typical tell us about yourself, straight forward job description questions, etc.

    Interview Questions
    • Tell us about yourself. No real trick questions, but that is always the question that can talk you out of an interview before it even starts.   Answer Question

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Newark, NJ
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 months - interviewed at Prudential in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    I first applied through my university website and was notified later that i was selected for an interview. The first interview was conducted by two people. I did not get a call back for about two months and then they notified me I was selected for a second interview. Less than a week after the second interview I was told that I got the job. The interview wasn’t anything out of the ordinary and they asked a lot of behavioral questions. Prudential likes to see people who have really good communication skills and people who are willing to work in a group environment.

    Reasons for Declining

    After reading reviews on this site, I discovered that they lied when they said no cold calls, also, I did not realize that it would take so long before I see a paycheck, and they failed to mention that my expenses would not be reimbursed in any way
    Also, any job that is being sold to you should be questioned. Typically, you sell yourself to the employer, not the other way around. They attempted to dazzle me with large numbers, but my interviewer was young and had only been working there for a short period of time. It just felt too good to be true.
