    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.

    Director Interview

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

    I applied online – interviewed at Prudential.

    Interview Details

    One phone interview with the hiring manager and then individual in-person interviews with him, his colleague and HR. It took about 2.5 hours. I thought the interviews went really well & felt that the position was a perfect fit, but I received no response from HR even after I contacted them twice for my status. It has been almost two months since my interview, but still no word or automatic rejection email from Pru.

    Financial Professional Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Downers Grove, IL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Prudential in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    They are very friendly but it is completely commission. Personally, I didn't really mind that is completely commission. But, I really did not like how you have to sell to your family and friends. They were extremely competitive in selling life insurance. It wasn't a good fit for me. Also, you have to pass a bunch of tests before you even work. Essentially, to work for Prudential you need to be all in from the start which is a big commitment from a company that doesn't offer you everything from the start.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing really. What do you look for in a company?   View Answer
    Reasons for Declining

    I didn't want to sell life insurance to my family and friends.
