I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at MetLife in December 2013.

Interview Question – .Net/C++ questions for a non-technical project lead position. Completely unrelated. Answer Question
Reason for Declining – The interview process was long and tedious. The hiring mangers/leads did not have good personalities that represented the company in a positive light. They just seem to be turning the handle. This location has a very high off-shore [INDIA] component and also a very high attrition as they are in a massive hiring phase to meet the 1,200 employee quota to get their tax benefits from the state and Cary. Hence, massive hiring, no investment in the person they are hiring. Finally, very very low salary for the area.
