I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Prudential in July 2013.
Interview Details – Many interviews with smiling, friendly subordinates to the MD. Think of a time-sharing experience. They will lie outright to entice prospects into the office. Their approach is one of rambling misrepresentation. One must submit to lengthy vetting through credit checks and month-long internal evaluation by individuals with fewer credentials and less experience. Run, do not walk, to the exit.

Negotiation Details – No negotiations and no truth in the process at all.

Very Easy Interview
I interviewed at Prudential in November 2013.
Interview Details – Accepted interview through college recruiting consortium and had a general information interview. The interview was very conversational and went well. I then took their online test and after passing it I was invited for a second interview at the closest office. The interview again felt very informal and unnecessary. I was then invited to come back to the office a second time and at this point decided to go in a different direction. Overall, the process felt much more drawn out then necessary, and often felt like the process wasn't actually moving forward.
