    IT Manager Interview

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

    I applied online – interviewed at MetLife in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    My interview process was ok but others had a disaster. Some of the managers are good interviewers and others not so good. Pretty standard questions.

    The interview was average. The company spends a lot of time selling culture and they don't back it up. Don't believe it.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing too surprising. However, some of my friends were asked about different jobs in the interview, but they were told they were being considered for other jobs. It was weird.   View Answer

    They came in a little low but we worked it out. They don't have an employee stock purchase plan.

    Software Engineer I Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed 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.

    Senior SharePoint Lead Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Research Triangle Park, NC
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Research Triangle Park, NC
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 7+ monthsinterviewed at MetLife in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    Initial call with HR recruiter was pleasant. Follow-on phone screen was somewhat straightforward. In terms of the technical environment, it's hard to match some of the technologies due to how much the company has invested in top notch technology. No mid to small company is able to match that. There was a 2-four week delay between phone screen and in person interviews. This lasted roughly a day.

    Surprised to say, I never received any feedback -- positive or negative. There was no closure to the entire process. The process started in Dec 2013--with interviews in Jan 2014 and never got a response (it is now May).

    Somewhat disappointed in the fact that there was zero follow up. I understand that with a company as large as Met, things get lost in the woodwork. However, when the advertisement on LinkedIn states "100s of GTO jobs open in Raleigh", it is somewhat misleading.

    Underwriting Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Kansas City, MO
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Kansas City, MO
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at MetLife.

    Interview Details

    Filled out application online. Got an email from an HR recruiter a week or two later to set up a phone interview. Phone interview consisted of behavioral questions and questions about work experience and resume. Recruiter then said that I would be contacted in a few days if I made it to the next round. Got an email a week or so later with links to take three tests (analytical, math word problems, reading comprehension). After taking the tests (pretty easy) I was contacted again by the recruiter a few days later saying that I had passed the tests and they wanted an in person interview. Recruiter gave two lists of 4 or 5 questions each, basic behavioral questions then went into how I should answer them with much detail and use the STAR method. Interview consisted of meeting separately with two managers in the underwriting department. Each asked one of the sets of questions. In the end my answers weren't detailed enough, they wanted an incredibly high amount of detail, more than I thought was necessary, so I wasn't asked to come in for a second round of in person interviews.

    Software Developer Interview

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

    I applied online – interviewed at MetLife in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    A HR called and send email for a software developer position. Classic HR questions; information about yourself, why do you want to work at MetLife. How much you were making in your last job etc. Turns out some other outsourced HR calls you back from Infusion. This HR asks similar question just like first HR. Waste of time. HR asks pre-selected scripted question. The questions are not so difficult; however, It questions HR asking technical questions? It seam it does not matter developer skill and experience. It seems Infusion wants to hire their own friends or employees. 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. So they fire first than hire. Hence, massive hiring, no investment in the person they are hiring. Finally, very very low salary for the area.

    Don’t waste your time. Look somewhere else with better opportunities.
