Host said: Do you work at Prudential? How did you find the job? How did you get that first interview?
Any advice for someone trying to get in?
My first interview was easy. I got the phone call within 5 minutes of e-mailing my resume.
Pretty fast response, but from there it was pretty standard.
First of all, they didn't tell me that there would be a barrage of tests before I had much of an actual "interview"
with anyone who could actually make a decision.
In fact, I got the impression that NO ONE could make a decision, that it was all a pre-programmed process that
could just keep going and going and going...
So, I came in and took the 50 or so question logic test, which I passed (BS in MATH and MBA probably helped)
and they let me take the next test.
That test was more of a "personality" test, which I answered honestly, but with answers that I KNEW wouldn't get the job,
basically to see if they could think on their feet.
They can't. Immediate reject. After reading some other entries I'm glad I didn't get to the "rest" of the interview which sounds like they are just fishing for marketing leads for all their trouble.
Also, I overheard some employees talking about what a jerk their boss was, so I wasn't too eager to join anyway, but
they'll never know that...
