    Financial Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Accepted Offer

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Prudential plc.

    Interview

    It comes in many many forms, but the bottom line is the same Before entering the interview, know what a successful interview looks like: 1) Not offered - means you fail to be able to be trained to pass a finance exam and sell 2) Offered the financial advisor job: Succeeded, but they don't need you 3) Offered both financial advisor job and monthly salary option: They kinda want you. Any answer (even if in the form of actions in a finance game or whatever you're being asked to do must show - Aggressive passion - Ability to be professional - Arithmetic Show those 3 things. You surely get to (2), unfortunately, to get to (3) is less clear..

    Manager Interview

    Accepted Offer

    Interview

    There was one point of contact through out the interview process. I felt that I was being mentored! Over the 4 rounds of interview, the level of depth into skills and expertise was very impressive. The questions made you think, and were very focused and sharp. The interviewers very intense yet warm. Overall, a near perfect process.

    Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Declined Offer

    Interview

    I applied for the job in response to their advert for some extra experience. I went and was given very good treatment by everyone, but was abit talked down to by the interviewer, who was offended at my assumption that Prudential was mainly in the business of life insurance. He probably felt pretty inferior because of my short response.

    Financial Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Irvine, CA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Prudential plc (Irvine, CA) in July 2013.

    Interview

    Met with the hiring manager on Monday. He was very nice and great at explaining all that they had to offer. He described the hierarchy as one that is great to work with. My second interview was that Friday. I met with the managing director, he was also very nice, but not as enthusiastic. I have almost 20 years experience in the industry and I kind of felt like he viewed me as a newbie. He liked that I had a client base but wasn't sure about how it would work. I left feeling like it would be a promising company but that he wants me to prove myself as opposed to expecting certain things.
