    Operations Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Prudential.

    Interview Details

    It started with a phone screen from a recruiter. Be warned- the directions to the initial interview location were incorrect, fortunately I knew the area. The next step was the online employment application, and a reading and math test at an offsite facility. The in-person interview was with two people, and a second interview immediately followed with two other people from the same department. It took about a week for me to get the offer (from the recruiter, over the phone).

    I was contacted through my school email as a potential applicant and told to apply online. Within 2 days I was contacted by phone and instructed to take an 88-question online assessment test before scheduling an interview. It was essentially a personality test to screen for people aggressive enough for a sales job.
