    Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at MetLife.

    Interview Details

    I had an interview with MetLife for the Account Executive position in Chicago. In email the human resource manager expressed excitement in meeting me, and though they were polite in person they were a complete 180. After just introudcing myself the representive tried to cut the interview short and it was evident they had already written me off as a candidate.

    If you are looking to work for a company that supports diversity and offer viable sustainability to future staff then do not consider MetLife. I find MetLife to be a true hallmark of unethical practices.

    Senior Claims Adjuster III Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in East Peoria, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in East Peoria, IL
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 7+ monthsinterviewed at MetLife in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    I interview from Feb-July and Hired in Nov. Expect to take a lot of test. 3 interviews over that period of time. Will ask tough questions. Better wear a Tux to interview very snooty company. I found a big plus is too make your interview first thing in the morning. I was lived 150 miles north of the regional office so it was a 2 1/2 hour drive one way. They were impressed that I made my interview at 9:00 a.m.. as they knew I left my home early.

    Interview Questions
    • A lot is your on line tests before they interview you. They give a personality test which is suppose to tell them if you have the correct personality to be in insurance and claims. Plus the most extensive back ground check I ever seen.   Answer Question

    Applying to MetLife or An American HORROR Story PART TWO
    (Please read Part One)

    Part Three:
    Received email from HR after submitting application. ....they might've fixed up the email template by this time, I don't remember. In the email, the HR person offered a date and time for an interview that wasn't good for me. I replied to the email and offered a window that worked better for me. I offered a 3-hour negotiable time frame (I said I was available Tuesday between 3 and 6) and asked the HR person to let me know what time works best for her. No response, she just went ahead and called at 3 on Tuesday. I wasn't expecting the call and I wasn't home at the time. I called her back, left a message with the hope of rescheduling the interview. No call back, apparently the Human Resources person's time is too precious to be a helpful resource to Humans.
    Part Four: Applied for a position with the MetLife Technical University program. Initial phone interview went great (it was a different person than the HR person associated with the first three scenarios). The next part of the process was an online assessment. It was a general aptitude test/
    No problem, I've taken them before and I was confident.....Well, I was confident until I took the test. The company that Metlife chose to perform the test is based in the UK. No big deal, right? No, not until I got to the section on converting measurements and money. Since it was a UK based assessment, the units were metric and the money was in pound notes. I wasn't too fluent with kilometers and I've never used pound notes, shillings, or pence in monetary transactions, so I had trouble. There were word problems like: "If Ian wants to travel from North Devonshire to Glastonbury within a fortnight, and travels at a rate of 35 kilometers per hour on the M1..." (OK, I might be exaggerating with that example). I also had trouble computing the number of shillings in a pound note and how many kilometers it would take to travel from Picadilly Square to the Prime Minister's office.
    Surprisingly, I passed the assessment and was sent an email to complete an application and select a date and time for a face-to-face interview. The email stated I would receive a confirmation email with location and directions once the application was received. I completed the application the same day, selected the time that worked best for me and eagerly awaited my reply. (Can you guess what happens next?) Nothing. No email confirmation. The company isn't very good on providing phone numbers for the HR dept. and the website didn't have any HR contact info. I called the person whom I had the initial phone interview with, left a VM to find out what's going on, but never heard back.

    OK, if I don't get a job there that's fine, but I would like to know who do I contact at MetLife to get compensation for all the time and effort I WASTED on your stupid asinine application process(es), completing applications on your buggy website, dealing with your incompetent HR staff, and completing your ridiculous online test. Tell me upfront if you don't want to hire me or if you have reservations. Don't make me waste my time on all this junk. I've got better things to do
    And you have the nerve to use Snoopy as part of your logo!

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took a weekinterviewed at MetLife in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    There is an interview and then an aptitude test where they rate you 1-10. If you do not score above 7 MetLife ends the process. You can reapply in 6 months. The aptitude test takes approximately 2 to 3 hours to complete. It is not a joke but very technical with multiple trick answers. There is some math and a lot of psychological questions.

    Project Lead - Software Development Engineer (SW Development Eng) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Raleigh, NC
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Raleigh, NC
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at MetLife in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Your are screened by a recruiter for salary and match to the required responsibilities. Once you get through this process then you are scheduled for interviews. Usually with 2 or more persons depending on the position. But it is all behavioral interviews for the GTO. So brush up on your stories. And the scenarios will not have anything to do with the position but your answers should be relevant to a business scenario. But while you may not be a fit for one category they will keep you in mind and pass your info onto other managers/ colleagues. If you can find someone that already work there and get a referral that would be more helpful.
