Application Details

I applied through other source - 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.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Prudential.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was pretty easy and laid back, even though they made it seem difficult. THe first one was a one on one with the basic questions and a math test. After that i was asked back to another interview with 3 people who asked behavioral type questions. The 3rd interview was with the manager of the branch, who are the end offered me the position.

    I applied through a recruiter. 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.

    I applied in-person. 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. 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....

    When you first get there, there is a quick one on one to answer any of your questions. Then a test is given to you on a computer. If you pass it they email you to come on again, if not you do not hear back. when you hear back, they send you another test you need to pass. If you pass this one they have you come in again for a real interview with a manager.
