    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Prudential.

    Interview

    Very long and arduous process.

    The entire process end-to-end took over 4 months and 8 interviews, lots of chasing just to find out that I was not selected. Need to work on streamlining the process.

    Interview

    I applied for a role on the Prudential website and was contacted the same today to come in the office for an interview the following week. Great! The interview was with the hiring manager and someone who would have been senior to me- but not my direct manager. The interview was about an hour, and I really enjoyed it. When I asked about next steps, I was told I would hear something shortly. I reached out to the recruiter the following week who told me initial interviews were still going on, but I would be contacted shortly about setting up a final round interview. Then, silence. I reached out to the recruiter twice, who did not reply to either one of my emails. At such a large company, I would have thought the communication/respect would have been a little better. If the position was filled by someone else/eliminated, just let me know at least....

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Prudential (New York, NY).

    Interview

    The process dragged on for like two and a half months. I was subject to three in-person interviews and a handful of phone calls (you would think this was a nuclear physicist job for all this hassle). The second interview was down to me and another person and they actually interviewed us at the same exact time in separate rooms. They made a point to tell me the other candidate was being interviewed in the other conference room, so they didn't even try to be discreet about it, which was really tacky. A while after the second interview, I was told they were now also considering me for a different job which doesn't exist yet, and that I would need a third interview. They assured me I was still in the running for the original job but that was probably a lie. However, for the third interview for the nonexistent job, they refused to interview me on-site and we had to meet in a location outside of their office so nobody in the office would know we were meeting- probably the shadiest interview move I've ever been subjected to. Then, I waited over three weeks after that only to find out that I didn't get the original job I applied for and they hired the other person. The bait-and-switch job they said they were considering me for still doesn't exist for whatever vague reason. If you're a serious candidate I absolutely do not recommend applying here- they will waste so much of your time, bait and switch you and treat you poorly. The process was so unprofessional and I am embarrassed when I think about how long I waited, while I probably missed out on a number of real opportunities.

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

    Interview

    I can’t recommend this company to anyone, unless you’re pretty desperate to get a job. If you’re a millennial like me, just keep looking. Management here is going to work you very hard and lock you up in a dingy office with poor technology. The interview process was over 2 months long with 2 phone interviews, a personality assessment online, portfolio review, and a grueling 4 hour in person interview with 4 different interviewers. Scheduling was a nightmare as they insisted I come in on a specific day even though I informed HR ahead of time that I could not. When I arrived at the building, security provided me with an ID tag, but kept me standing by the security desk for 10 minutes without asking if I wanted to sit down. I was shocked to see that the cubicles and offices were so dark and dingy. The breakroom had only an old fridge and microwave. Even the new office plan seemed unwelcoming. The cafeteria was sad, the food poor, and the seating area was very dark. During the interview I was grilled about my personality traits and my job skills. But it felt my interviewers were more interested in talking about themselves, than about the position. I’m a talented worker and very respected at my current job. At the end of this process I was happy I didn’t end up working for Prudential.

    Interview

    It was good. They were all pretty nice and wanted to learn more about you. They asked basic cultural fit questions that weren't too hard to answer. They just want to look for those who are motivated to work for their company.
