Underwriting Analyst Interview

Underwriting Analyst
Kansas City, MO

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at MetLife.

Interview Details – I was scheduled for a 1 hour long interview. I met with an HR person first and was asked the basic behavioral questions while she took notes. That lasted about 20 minutes and then I met with an Underwriting Consultant for the rest of the hour. He asked more behavioral style questions but were much more specific than the first set. After answering his questions he said they were hiring about 15 people and looking to have a recruiting class in about a month. He also said that there would be a second interview after I complete some aptitude assessments if I am selected and that the whole hiring process should only take 1-2 weeks.

Interview Question – Please describe a time when you had a conflict with a group member or superior and how could it have been avoided?   View Answer
