    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Prudential (Cincinnati, OH) in December 2014.

    Interview

    Laid back, aligned my goals with theirs. Very supportive sales team and management. Opportunity to transition from a current job to their CDP (career development program) which is nice. I was able to transition seamlessly from my old job to the Financial Professional Associate position with all of my licenses and training already completed.

    Interview Questions

    • Very basic questions, nothing too difficult. They just wanted to find out if your work ethic and personality aligned with the sales position (FPA) they were hiring for.   Answer Question

    Interview

    I was recruited from my college campus. The process was not difficult. the last round interview was at Roseland with 3 30 min interviews back to back with three different team leaders. Questions asked were basic scenario and behavior questions. You need to know the information about the company and be on top of their stock price if you want to get somewhere in the interview. No technical questions at all but it is always good to know your stuff

    Interview

    Applied through University, heard back a couple of weeks later for an interview. The interview was purely behavioral with generic questions. The interviewer was nice but kind of awkward. There was a greeter to walk you through the entire situation.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Prudential (Roseland, NJ) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Process was very quick about finding out about the second round of interviews, as I was told i was going to the second round during my first interview, which was me meeting with 3 different VPs/ Managers. Getting the final decision took much longer, around 2 months. Questions were easy, and did not require external research. Knowing basic business knowledge is the best way to prepare and will help you answer most questions asked.
