    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Prudential (Somerset, NJ) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I was contacted through email to see if I was interested in the position. After a brief phone call to explain the job, you will need to complete a 88 question personality test. Get use to this type of test as it seems to be everywhere. After passing it, you will go in for an in person interview as well as take an aptitude test regarding logic and basic math knowledge. Test can take between an hour to two. The actual interview was actually very pleasant and I enjoyed the lecture. It really made me feel like I was back in school. Basically a review of the job, the requirements and if your a good match. Knowing 200 people for your target will be needed or it will be toough.

    Interview

    All of focus is on rushing you to sell insurance versus properly training in the licensing and ability to recruit clientele. More time should be spent on grooming employees on the art of associating with clients.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Prudential (Minneapolis, MN) in December 2012.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter and was asked to come in for in interview. The interview is a sales pitch on a 100% commission job. You will get all flowers and roses and that you are the person that they are looking for. You are someone with drive and that you will get all the background and training you will need. They will have you start PT during the training process and will need to have around $1200 for licenses to sell the products. Nice opportunity if you can afford to not have a base pay to rely on.
