    Group Hiring Process. A lot of time selling the company. Utilized a screening software to determine if someone was aggressive enough. Everyone was very cordial and high energy. The Interviewer did make a point to everyone to discuss this opportunity with their spouse and how important it was for a total commitment. Also indicated that there was about a 90% drop out rate within a year.

    Consulting Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Prudential in August 2015.

    Interview

    Great experience. HR was on point. They called and emailed to keep you abreast of the status and next steps. If I emailed a question, typically I received a response within 3 days. I spoke with approximately 7 people in total and the overall process took nine weeks. A personality test was required and then I moved to the "final" stage per the HR rep which was an interview with the hiring manager's manager. I was told they hired internally for this position, but hope other suitable positions will open up as I had a great experience. It's so nice to see that Prudential has a streamlined interview process.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Prudential.

    Interview

    Spoke with a recruiter specializing Communications and HR recruitment for the firm. This recruiter was extremely unprofessional- no call at the agreed time, I had to email her to see if we were still connecting. She called immediately (at which point it was almost 10minutes late), didn't apologize for lateness. On realizing I had an accent (British) she proceeded to grill me about my ability to work in the US, despite explaining to her that I was eligible to do so through access to a work permit. Overall, incredibly unprofessional, she had poor listening skills and we didn't even discuss the role. This was months after my original application was submitted.

    Interview Questions

    • As above, the recruiter was not interested in me as a candidate and only in my ability to work in the United States- which I assured her I did have.   Answer Question

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Prudential (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I got in touch with a representative at a career fair and expressed my interest in joining. I got a call from a director and an SVP about two or three weeks later. First round was a phone interview with basic private placement understanding questions. No real curve balls. About two weeks later got invited to super day in NYC. Again, very fair interviews, met with the entire office leadership. Seems like it would have been awesome to work there.

    Interview Questions

    • None really. Everything was pretty straight forward. If you understand the basics of financial statements and how they all tie together, you should be fine on the technical questions.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Prudential (Newark, NJ).

    Interview

    One phone interview, several in-person interviews with people in the group and other groups. Friendly process. They are focused on finding the best fit for the company and most of the questions are related to that. Very few technical questions, but that will depend if they can guess your technical skills from previous jobs and resume.
