Senior Analyst Interview

Senior Analyst
Morristown, NJ

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at MetLife.

Interview Details – In-house recruiter called to set up an phone screening. The phone screening took less than one hour. It was pretty straight forward with no redundant questions. Then the recruiter set up an onsite interview with the line manager. A few days later I was interviewing with the senior manager. All of the three interviews were very pleasant ones with nice people.

Senior Project Lead Interview

Senior Project Lead
Cary, NC

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

Interview Details – 4 step process: HR [outsourced] phone screen, technical interview [unrelated to job spec], 2 behavioral on-site interviews [waste of time].

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.

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at MetLife in January 2014.

Interview Details – I applied online for this position. About two weeks went by and I got an email asking to set up a time to do an over the phone interview. The recruiter never called during the specified time, that they provided. After a couple emails, each one asking again for a phone number, they finally did call and the interview lasted for 4 questions. 1. was I legal to work in US. 2 Will I need a visa. 3 how much do I currently make. 4 what is my salary requirement. I told them 60k was my minimum, which is below national average, but after this she "noticed" that I will not be available for 3 months and ended the interview.

Interview Question – Never asked any question past 4 mentioned above   Answer Question
