I applied through other source and interviewed at Prudential.

Interview Details – All of focus is on rushing you to sell insurance versus properly training in the licensing and ability to recruit clientele. More time should be spent on grooming employees on the art of associating with clients.

Interview Question – Do you feel you can recruit upwards of 500 people your first year to purchase insurance?   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – All commission upfront very small base salary.

Sales Associate Interview

Sales Associate
Minneapolis, MN

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Prudential in December 2012.

Interview Details – I was contacted by a recruiter and was asked to come in for in interview. The interview is a sales pitch on a 100% commission job. You will get all flowers and roses and that you are the person that they are looking for. You are someone with drive and that you will get all the background and training you will need. They will have you start PT during the training process and will need to have around $1200 for licenses to sell the products. Nice opportunity if you can afford to not have a base pay to rely on.

Interview Question – Are you comfortable not knowing what you are going to make next month?   View Answer

Reason for Declining – I couldn't accept a full commission job at this time.

City of Industry, CA

I applied in-person and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Prudential in March 2010.

Interview Details – Had to take a few tests between interviews. Questions could possibly have more than one answer to them. Was a formal setting with a Very Sharp HR manager. Very impressed by the Human Resources department here. The first interview was rather intimidating but the staff and managers were very professional.

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Prudential in October 2009.

Interview Details – interview process was very educational and very helpful for me, I did not fully understand before what that job entails, so during the process I have realized that this job is not for me.... But loved the manager and people seemed nice and smart.... Will consider working for Prudential, but maybe in a dif capacity....
