Average Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Prudential.

Interview

The interview was a 30 minute phone call with the division head. It started straight away with him describing the role and then asking me about school, classes, projects, etc. The interviewer was very engaging and we ended up going past the 30 minute mark. He listened intently and when a particular project interested him, he pushed on it.

Interview Questions

    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!

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Prudential (Los Angeles, CA) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Applied through campus recruiting and received a first round interview on campus. Thirty minute interview, low emphasis on behavioral (walk me through your resume), high emphasis on technical. Asked about free cash flow analysis and what factors go into deciding whether or not to lend. Then there was a short case study question on how to decide whether or not to lend. Interviewer was pretty disengaged from the beginning.

    Asked to apply from my universities recruiting page. First interview was on campus and very technical, but it varies depending on the person. About a week later I received note that I was selected for a second interview with Prudential's capital group. They flew me to Chicago for a night and took very good care of me. The second interview consisted of 5 interviews at their office. Great experience overall.
