    LCBE 1L SummerProgram Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Prudential (Chicago, IL) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online. The application requested a cover letter, resume, transcript, and references. I did not need a letter of recommendation. A few days after I sent my application, I received an email from Prudential and was asked to finish a different online application. A few days after finishing the additional application I got a call from Prudential and they asked me if I was interested in the internship. I told them I was. A few days later I got a call from Prudential and they offered me an intern position.

    Financial Service Representative Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Prudential (Scranton, PA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I applied for the position in January and I got a call from the recruiter in March to set up a phone interview for the following day. The phone interview consisted of 2 situational questions (tell me about a time...) and an explanation of salary, what the position consists of and benefits. Once I stated that I was still interested, I progressed to the next step which was an assessment. It had a call center simulator and a lot of behavior questions, nothing too hard. I got an email the next day asking to set up an in person interview. I scheduled mine for the following week. The interview was with one manager, and it was about 6-8 situational questions and a 'tell me about yourself'. After that I was able to listen in on a live call in the call center to see what it would be like. The position is just educating clients on their 401k, pension, savings, etc and helping them with any changes they would like to make. I got a call the next day offering me the position. Which comes next is a very extensive background check.

    Human Resources Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Newark, NJ

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Prudential (Newark, NJ) in February 2017.

    Interview

    No phone interview. Emailed an interview request. Met with 4 different people, took about 2 hours. The following sent sent another interview request for a 2nd interview. I sent my availability and did not hear back from the scheduler for over a week (very unprofessional) followed up with the recruiter who said the scheduler was trying to work everything out. When I finally heard back from the scheduler she gave me a list of 4 dates to choose from. I sent her back and the date and time and she replied that that was not going to work and they wanted me to come in the next day! (This is after she gave me a list of dates to pick from, once again very unprofessional after I already took off work for the other day)! With no other option I went to the second interview and the first interviewer was extremely nice, however the second interviewer was rude and standoffish and I could tell she felt like she has better things to do that interview me. After the interview was over she did not even bother to walk me out the door and I had no idea where to go. I sent numerous follow up emails with no response, finally my recruiter called me to tell me they went with someone who already worked there because they were more qualified and did not have to be trained. Honestly, why waste anyone's time if that is what they had planned from the start! Overall extremely negative experience, I expected so much more from a company like Prudential. As an HR professional I am highly disappointed.

    Financial Professional Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fairfax, VA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Interview

    Scheduled a interview before even sending me the assessment; after the assessment was done then canceled the interview. Before even scheduling a interview should've said after completing the assessment if we believe you are a fit for the position we will then follow up to schedule a interview and not vice versa.
