    First I was screened by Human Resources person.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Prudential (Newark, NJ (US)).

    Interview

    Lengthy, but not overly difficult. Companies with this much red tape usually take two months longer than it should. The process should take less than a month, but it drags on for more than three months. Had to keep prodding HR and the hiring manager even though I was told after the hire that they were anxious to make me the offer since I was the obvious choice, I can't imagine how long it would have taken if their was some hesitation on their part?

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Prudential in March 2015.

    Interview

    Spoke on the phone to set up an interview date.

    Start out the process by filling out a survey about yourself and different things of the company.

    First interview is telling you about the job and also going over your resume and how you might fit the position.

    Two more interviews are done afterward if you keep moving forward. You'd come back and meet and talk about the market segment and different area's of the job, etc.

    Then you'd come back and speak with a few people and be given a structured interview which we mostly know to include behavior questions
