    Financial Professional Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Charleston, SC (US)
    Anonymous Employee in Charleston, SC (US)
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter - interviewed at Prudential.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a recruiter and asked to fill out an application. After doing so, I received another email asking me to complete an 88 question character assessment. The assessment covered my past experience as well as hypothetical situations that asked what would I be most/least likely to do and asked me to select from a list of choices that were generic and not particularly close to what I would actually do. No opportunity for explanation was given and "none of the above" was not an option.

    Interview Questions
    • There wasn't anything particularly difficult. The most difficult thing for me was trying to figure out the logic of the hiring process. I received an email from a recruiter, timestamped at 11:30 PM on a Monday evening, requesting that I apply. I completed the application and assessment on Tuesday afternoon and received a letter informing me that I had not been hired (via email) on Thursday morning with no explanation as to why.   Answer Question

    I interviewed through college or university - interviewed at Prudential in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    3 stages, meeting with manager, then agency trainer, then managing director. Pretty simple process. Pretty structured. the final interview with the managing director was the most intimidating because it was very structured. Make sure you are prepared for the interview questions. They can be very difficult. The agency trainer was very nice. Didn't ask too many difficult questions.

    Financial Professional Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Northborough, MA (US)
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Prudential in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    I went to a job fair and was approached by one of the managers. I attended a few interviews and everyone was very nice. I felt like they cared about me and my success. I attended an in person interview, a phone interview, then a final interview where they make sure you are the right fit for the job. They tell you about the sales structure for earning commission, then set you up for the orientation. A skills test is required, as well as a personality test.

    Interview Questions
    • Will you be able to financially support yourself through the training until it has been completed?   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    I declined because I'm not a spot in my life where I can work without earning money because I don't have any saved at the moment, just coming out of college. This position would be better for someone who is doing a career transition.
