    Interview Details

    I applied through the college career services center during my senior year. The process included an initial on campus interview followed by phone and in person interviews.

There were no brain teasers or unexpected questions. The interviews were all conducted by very outgoing HR representatives and I never actually met with another financial adviser.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was great. The supervisor were very nice and they basically want to know about your customer service skills. They ask you about specific situation and behaviors.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult question would be
      explain a situation where you did not provide the best customer service to a customer.
      They do not want you to say no I haven't because they want you to show how you learn from that experience.

    Customer Service Representative Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at MetLife.

    Interview Details

    100% unprofessional hiring processes. Consistent lack of communication and response to messages from recruiter and hiring team. No one wanted to take ownership of situations and passed the buck repeatedly, I could never get a solid answer, and they dragged the process out 4 months. Most of the time, I had to do their job for them by calling FINRA about my licenses and getting my drug test information. Not a company I would want to join after the way they conducted this process.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 3+ weeksinterviewed at MetLife.

    Interview Details

    I applied and was contacted by email to schedule a phone interview about a week later. The phone interview was scheduled for the following week, which consisted of behavioral based questions. The recruiter advised that she would forward my application to the hiring manager and then she would contact me if they chose to move forward. About a week later I was contacted by email to schedule the in person interview. I was scheduled to meet with two hiring managers. On the day of the interview I signed in and one of the managers came and got me. I met with her first, she basically went over my resume and experience. After that I met with a team lead, who was a bit arrogant but I kept my cool, he asked questions about my experience, and about what I thought the job entailed. I then say with someone on the floor and talked with her about the job. After that I spoke with the second hiring manager, who then took me to meet with his manager. I was told that I would hear back in about a week.
