    IT Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Cary, NC
    Anonymous Employee in Cary, NC
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at MetLife.

    Interview Details

    For a management position, what I found was a very chaotic, disorganized, and unprofessional interview process. In the end Metlife could not offer anything close to my salary expectations which were generous relative to my current salary (at least 25% under).

    This is how my phone interview was done. My first interview was scheduled for 30 minutes. To start it off, the interviewing manager was 15 minutes late to the call. Five minutes after my interview started another interviewee joined the conference line. The other interviewee was totally surprised that another interview was taking place. After that interviewee left the conference call my interview was cut down to 10 minutes. Closer to the top of the hour more people started joining the conference call and the interviewing manager abruptly ended the call.

    Another piece of information that folks should know about the jobs Metlife is offering in the triangle. These jobs were held by people in other locations being paid at much higher salaries. Metlife is hoping to relocate those jobs to North Carolina and save money by not paying competitive wages. Also you should be aware that these jobs are not free. Just search Google for the huge tax break Metlife gets for each North Carolina employee they hire. Tax breaks that North Carolina residents have to pay for.

    As a long time North Carolinian, and tax payer for over 20 years, bringing Metlife to the triangle feels like a misuse of public tax funds.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at MetLife.

    Interview Details

    Mostly conversational to get to know you. Then they took me on a tour of the office and described what each person did. The key to the second interview was almost like a homework assignment to go over things of the company.

    Anonymous Employee in Irvine, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at MetLife in March 2015.

    Interview Details

    On campus interview, followed by second round interviews at the Irvine office. There was an online assessment test prior to the second round interviews with a mix of verbal reasoning and math problems. Math problems were heavily based on sequence analysis and pattern recognition. After the "final round" I was invited to meet with the regional VP for a final chat.

    Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at MetLife in March 2015.

    Interview Details

    First started off with about a 15 min call from HR. She just dived in asking questions, and didn't provide any oversight on the company and position. A couple weeks went by and out pf the blue I get an email to set up time to talk to hiring mgr for an hour on the phone. That conversation was a little better getting a better insight on the position and company. One thing that seemed odd to me is the hiring mgr works remote in a different state while this position had to report to an office. The Mgr told me to follow up with her in a week, so I did. Left about 3 voicemails over a week after. Since I didn't get a reply back I figured they moved on. Things got weird after that.....over 2 weeks later I get a random email from the recruiter asking me to come into the office to interview face to face with someone. Get that scheduled, and the morning of the interview day the recruiter calls and leaves me a voicemail to cancel because they just filled the position. Pretty ridiculous process if you ask me. Hear nothing for weeks, then suddenly want to schedule another step to turn around and cancel the next day.

I was then called over the phone after I had completed the online interview process, I was called into the office. I was brought into the sales directors office and we went over my answers on the online interview and how well I had scored.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at MetLife.

    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. I was brought to the regional headquarters in Richmond and offered the position. The entire process was quick, straightforward and relatively easy. 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 Questions
    • Very basic and general questions:

    The hiring and interview process was traditional.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at MetLife.

    Interview Details

    Very proffesional interview process, although a bit lengthy. I was set up for a phone interview for about 20 minutes then was told they will let me know if I made it the next round of an in person interview. About a week or so later, they called me back to set up the interview. I met with 3 people, all of whom were very nice and proffesional. Then after about 2 months with a few follow up emails I was finally told they made someone else an offer.
