    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Prudential.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed on campus originally where I was asked about general behavioral questions. We went over my resume and was asked to elaborate on some of my resume points. Later we had a random discussion about an online website I used and how his wife and son were addicted to the same site. I didn't hear back for like 3 weeks and then received a call to come in the next day. The on site interview was two 30min interviews with two people at the time. The next day I got the offer. Never had a technical question.

    Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Newark, NJ
    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

    Senior Analyst Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Prudential in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and was contacted by Staffing specialist within ten days. An interview was set up to meet with three members of the group I would be working for, roughly a half hour with each. Interview questions pertained to the job and was more of a conversation as opposed to a strict interview. It was a conversation detailing areas the group needed help and how I could help contribute to the group. Everyone was very nice, very honest, and was one of the more positive interviews I've ever had. No trick questions, typical tell us about yourself, straight forward job description questions, etc.

    Interview Questions
    • Tell us about yourself. No real trick questions, but that is always the question that can talk you out of an interview before it even starts.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Prudential in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    I first applied through my university website and was notified later that i was selected for an interview. The first interview was conducted by two people. I did not get a call back for about two months and then they notified me I was selected for a second interview. Less than a week after the second interview I was told that I got the job. The interview wasn’t anything out of the ordinary and they asked a lot of behavioral questions. Prudential likes to see people who have really good communication skills and people who are willing to work in a group environment.

    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.
