Financial Representative Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  New York, NY
Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
Application Details

I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 7 months - interviewed at MetLife in January 2010.

Interview Details

The process was an active bait and switch method. The recruiter made warranties that were not meant or met. There was a social dinner and then a series of meetings that only postponed the start of compensation but required time and money. The recruiter admitted years later that the pitch was exaggerated. The culture of abuse started at the interview because the comments described a strategy detached from the reality. They use the Snoopy logo to lull people to believe their hype.

Interview Questions
Negotiation Details
The negotiation was totally one-sided. It was take it or leave it and bait and switch with very little candor.

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at MetLife in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    I was recruited at a university career fair. They called me for a preliminary phone interview and then asked me to come in for an in-person interview. I also had to take a few tests which were a little difficult but they measure financial skills and personality. At the interview, one of the very nice hiring managers sat me in a small conference room and went over my resume and asked basic interviewing questions (mainly focusing on my sales experience). They also went over the position and the salary. Which starts off being highly commission based and no paid training. If you do well you get a salary/commission.

    The process took a day - interviewed at MetLife in January 2011.

    Interview Details

    Very Simple they really seemed to need people. I did not like to heavy commission reliance the job description included. Also, you have to pay for your own licenses which wold cost upward of $400. The interviewer tried selling me on the job very hard but he was very unrealistic with his commission and professional development projections and explanations.

    Reasons for Declining

    High reliance on commission and I do not want to work in a cubical.
