I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Prudential in November 2012.

Interview Details First interview was on-site at my campus, second round was at their headquarters in Newark, NJ. Process seemed very organized throughout and it looks like a program that can give you a lot of hands-on experience. The second round interview consisted of 2 separate interviews by employees, the first round was just one.

Interview Question – When was there a time that you experienced difficulty motivating a team member and what did you do?   Answer Question

I applied through other source and the process took a day - interviewed at Prudential in May 2012.

Interview Details Went down to the headquarters, was told that it was round 1 of interview, there would be a round 2 in the future, was told to do a personality test, and to fill up some personal particulars form. Was then told to wait, before meeting someone from the company. Went through the basic interview questions, "tell me about yourself, what are your strengths and weaknesses, where do you see yourself in the next 3 years, what makes you want to work"

The process took 3 months - interviewed at Prudential in March 2012.

Interview Details I was contacted at the beginning of January that I had been selected for a phone interview. That interview occured about a week later and was fairly laid back and informal. I was asked the typical background information and goals-related questions. After about 2 weeks I was sent an email notifying me that I had been selected for a 2nd round on-site interview. That did not occur until the beginning of March but it was very organized and a very postive experience. I had two 45 minute 1-on-1 interviews with more of the same typical HR questions. about 2 weeks after that, I was called and offered an internship.

Interview Question – What was a situation where you were working in a group and the other members weren't fulfilling their responsibilities? How did you deal with it?   Answer Question

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Prudential in May 2010.

Interview Details It took a long time (almost 2 months) for HR to contact me if I were still interested in a position. I said yes and had a phone interview that went relatively well. 2 weeks later I went in for 2nd rounds. I met with 2 hiring managers and was offered a position with my preferred one. I am reaching the end of my internship and I hope to get a full-time offer! It's pretty great here in terms of people and flexibility.
