    Human Resources Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Prudential (Newark, NJ) in December 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was very positive. I have never been through such a professional and organized interview process in my entire life. I got there maybe 15 minutes before schedule and was signed in and told to wait in a small area towards the side of the lobby. About 5 minutes after I sat down, another person interviewing for the position came and sat down next to me. I was actually pretty shocked because this person was someone I knew and we were extremely similar (same experience, same college, same sorority experience, etc.). We went upstairs to a location where we would meet each time we were done with one interview and were awaiting the start of another. We could leave our bags and coats, grab a water, a mint, and gather ourselves before the start of an interview which was super nice. Each interview ran more like a conversation and they had a couple pre-set questions that they were obviously forced to ask. We were even able to meet a prior intern who actually has a full-time position within the company now. At the conclusion of the interview process we were given lunch before being sent on our way. One aspect of the interview process that was just slightly awkward for me was that I knew the person I was sitting down with and I knew another person who also interviewed that same day. I was quickly able to tell that we were all extremely similar people with similar experiences and personalities so it was really a toss-up with who got the position in the end. It might have been better if each person had their own time slot to avoid this! I was told, over the phone, about two days after the super-day that I did not get the position. I was super upset given the interview process went very well and this company is phenomenal.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Prudential in December 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online. The first round is a phone screening, second round they send you a dataset and questions, and ask you to analysis and answer questions. The 3rd round is an onsite interview. The interview took one day and there is 4 rounds. A lot of questions about basics of statstics and programing. People are nice, but the questions are hard. They are looking for people have strong maths or statistics background and also good programming skills.

    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    I had a phone interview and then a few days later I was contacted that I was going to have an on site interview. Everybody was very professional and friendly. There were tough questions but it was clear that they were not out to get me. They were more focused on passion and team-work skills then on simply possessing the right technical background.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Prudential (Dallas, TX).

    Interview

    First round was a 20 minute on campus. Second round super day was long with 7-10 interviews throughout the entire day. The analysts were very good about keeping candidates comfortable and engaged during non-interview times and dinner. Most interviews were with line managers and one interview was with the MD. All interviews were about 20 minutes long. Good experience!

    Summer Investment Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Prudential (Atlanta, GA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    It was very straightforward. I went through round 1 of interviews. I applied online through my school's career website. I was invited a few days after the resume drop deadline to schedule an interview. I met with a recruiter for a 30 minute screening interview, which ended up lasting 45 minutes.The interviewer was really laid back. He primarily asked me to walk him through my resume and tell him why I was interested in Real Estate. I have been invited back for a second round of interviews at their Super Day in Atlanta. I had to complete a case study in advance that was emailed to me from one of their recruiters. It was not very hard if you have a general understanding how to do a pro forma income statement and calculate IRR on excel.
