    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Prudential.

    Interview

    Referred through a friend. Process was a couple phone interviews then a final in person interview. The job was out of state so I think I had more phone interviews prior to coming in-person than most.

    Interview

    I'm pretty annoyed. A random recruiter called me saying that I had applied for a position even though I never applied for one. He indicated that there is an information session coming up.

    Hint: Insurance companies are notorious for disguising sales positions by calling them "financial advisors".

    Another hint: people that mass hire are the only ones that hold information sessions.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Prudential (Chalfont, PA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    My interviewer was a personable woman who clearly explained the job opening to me. It was for a Financial Advisor, and I would have to obtain at least three licenses to sell insurance in my state. The fee for these licenses was $900-$1,000. If I passed the tests, I would be reimbursed the money by the company. Essentially, I was studying to become an independent insurance agent, with support from Prudential if I required it. There would be no salary. My income would be based on my sales and my commission from them.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Prudential (Milwaukee, WI) in May 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was very casual and was 1 on 1 with the hiring manager. Second interview was with the regional vice president. I then went through a background check that took several weeks to get completed. I then had a third interview with the hiring manager again to see if I had any questions or concerns.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Prudential (East Brunswick, NJ) in April 2016.

    Interview

    asked me if i had $950 to spend for all the testing/ license fees. cuz lady on phone(Pearle) didnt want to "waste her time." Then asked if i was part of any type of church or big group so i can bring in clients for them. told me i could make 80-120k per year so i was interested and set up appt for interview. then i did reseasrch on this east brunswick location. NO SALARY is a bad thing. 26 complaints with the SEC is also another bad thing. but i decided not to take job. i would trust prudential in the main building in Newark. but not somebody renting out just an office in a hotel. too shady for me.
