    Senior Learning and Development Specialist Interview

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

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Prudential in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process was great...I had two phone interviews, two face to face interviews and then a panel interview with a presentation. The entire interview process was fabulous. The team was wonderful. It was the post interview activity that was discouraging.
    I was told by the hiring manager that I would be notified the following week, one week to the day of the interview, of their decision. When I finally heard from HR I was told that I had to take an assessment. The HR rep explained to me that no one does well on the math and that is just a formality. She actually made me think that it was just a formality based on her poor opinion of the tool. I am not sure why they utilize an assessment that doesn't leverage a candidates experience to the position, but I completed it. The assessment was not at all what I expected and having it come up last minute really placed a damper on the whole experience. Needless to say, I wasn't offered the job. It was disappointing because it was a great opportunity and everyone seemed so wonderful. I am not sure why the assessment wasn't given up front.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Prudential in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Pretty easy interview process, focused on your network, project two hundred is a big part of things. They did three interviews for me, each time they really sold themselves more than me selling to them. I took the job so we'll see how things go. You have to pay for your licenses but they supposedly reimburse you after you start working. We'l see.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Prudential in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied on July and I got the call two weeks later for a phone interview. The same day I received an invitation for a face-to-face interview for the following week. The interview was very easy and most behavioral and situational questions. They wanted to know if you will be a good fit in the team. But don't trust the job description and required skills, those are too vague and in the interview they will tell you. Be prepared!

    Interview Questions
    • Asked me about fixed income knowledge however it was not a skill required in the job description but they were looking for someone with those skills.   Answer Question

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Prudential.

    Interview Details

    I was recruited from a job fair. I set up an initial interview with the manager who explained the position. Then I did a phone interview with a second manager, who liked to talk. I was required to do a skills test and a personality test. To them, the personality test is more important. Then I did a third interview to go over compensation details.

    Investment Analyst Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Prudential.

    Interview Details

    I was flown out to their Chicago offices and stayed in small meeting room as the interviewers rotated. I was interviewed by 6 individuals. an analyst, then principal, associate, principal, analyst, principal and finally the director. The first analyst asked me a few technical questions including how to value an apartment complex with 200 units and commercial space on the 1st floor. Each interviewer wanted to know why I wanted to be in real estate. One of the principals asked me to give him a pitch about anything. The other principal asked me odd questions to try and see if I was an analytical person. The position was heavily on modeling and analyzing spreadsheets so they wanted to make sure I was a good fit. The director asked me what Prudential's stock price was, but everyone walked through my resume.

    Interview Questions
    • The stock price question took me by surprise and I hadn't looked at the stock in a few weeks but managed to get by. I expected a real estate valuation question so it helped that I refreshed myself on common industry metrics and methods.   Answer Question

    Financial Professional Associate Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Prudential in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    For a large company like Prudential I expected more professionalism. After being in touch with the Recruiter through several e-mail exchanges she wasn't slightly aware of my background and experience when I went for an interview. It's understandable that they're dealing with hundreds of candidates but at least they should take a minute to refresh their minds before calling in someone. Like others have mentioned, the position seemed so cheap since the whole time they were trying to sell their position instead of me selling myself to them. Didn't really get into the salary detail, but they did mention that there's never any lay off in that position, make your own schedule and you also make based on how much you sell. So it's pretty much like a Mary Kay business, instead of selling cosmetics you're selling insurance with a fancy title.

    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.

    Reasons 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.
