    Pricing Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Warwick, RI
    Anonymous Employee in Warwick, RI
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at MetLife in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, then phone screen, then onsite with 6 people in the department.

    Everyone was pretty nice and friendly. Most interviewers stuck to a script of behavioral questions. I feel as though I might have been too passive and really only responded to the questions as opposed to selling myself. I interviewed with 6 people total, each 1 on 1. The boss came in last and didn't spend much time with me so I suppose the verdict had been decided prior to her entering the room. I never received any contact after the interview notifying me one way or another despite being told I would hear back within a week. I did reach out to the HR contact that had scheduled the interview via email and still no reply. I felt that was a little rude. Everyone was pleasant to me at the interview though. What I took away was that I should have actively injected more concrete examples of having used applicable skills as opposed to simply replying to inane behavioral questions.

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at MetLife.

    Interview Details

    Three interviews, not difficult, but it took a while to complete the three rounds. Advice will be to be prepared. Read about the company, read as much interview questions from online as possible, get answers ready.

    It was in my range of expectations, so it was easy.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at MetLife in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied directly on their website. I received an email from a recruiter in response to my application. An interview was scheduled by a recruiting coordinator. The process was very smooth. The associates I communicated with (recruiting and hiring managers) were very nice and forthcoming with what to expect during the interview process. Although I was not offered a job, I will apply with this company again in the future.

    Interview Questions
    • I didn't run into any unexpected or difficult questions. I only made it to the 2nd interview. Perhaps the tricky questions would have come during the 3rd.   Answer Question

    Claims Adjuster (AIU) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Henderson, NV
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Henderson, NV
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at MetLife in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was offered the above position with MetLife. I passed the background check except for my credit. I have been unemployed for eight months and no income. My bills have fallen behind during this time. The Due Diligence team emailed and asked if I was making payments/paid off the collections accounts. I immediately contacted the individual who was assigned to my case and she wasn't available. I explained my situation to another team member and she asked if I would reply to email explaining the situation (I did). She stated she would speak with the person who was on my case. At a later date (one week) I followed up with the team again reaching out to the assigned individual of my case and once again I was told she wasn't available and my case was under review. A third time I called to make sure if I needed to provide any other supporting documentation and I was told the individual was not available and that I would be receiving a call soon. On September 4, 2014 prior to a start date of September 8, 2014, I received a call from Dawn Miller stating MetLife was rescinding on the job offer letter because my credit was not good. I was asked why now after being offered this position August 6, 2014. I explained once again my situation and I was told my case had been under review and that management and Due Diligence had made this decision not to move forward. I explained that I was qualified for the position and have a degree, but because of my credit I'm denied employment! Total discrimination! I was lastly told I was welcome to apply for other positions in the company that did not require good credit, although I wasn't being considered for anything else. On Monday, September 8, 2014 I received a signature required envelope from MetLife that spoke about rescinded offer.

    Interview Questions
    • I experienced no difficult questioning. The first interview went well and during this time it was discussed about credit check. I was told it was not a big deal. If bills are in collections it would be asked for one to take care of them. I didn't think anymore about a credit check. It was obvious that my credit wasn't looked at prior to unemployment.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Don't believe an employer about credit checks unless they are truly interested on who you are and what you will bring to the company. The pay was starting comfortably.

    Agent Interview

    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.

    Customer Service Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tulsa, OK
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tulsa, OK
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at MetLife.

    Interview Details

    I was sent an e-mail from a recruiter and moved forward from there. I took a few tests online and got a phone call from 2 different recruiters. Unfortunately, the two recruiters didn't talk to each other, so the second one didn't realize that I'd already gotten a phone call. It was a little confusing for a bit until we figured out what happened. My actual interview was ok. I think that I was asked some important questions and I of course gave honest answers to them. The only thing I would have liked was some additional info on the actual job itself since I'd never worked in a call center before.

    Interview Questions
    • They wanted to know if I was willing to work nights. The recruiter had indicated that I'd only work nights maybe 2-3 nights a week, but that was incorrect, so I wasn't expecting this question.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    There wasn't one. Basically, they said that this was what was available and didn't leave any wiggle room.
