I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at MetLife in February 2010.

Interview Details – I had a call from a recruiter, who read me the job description and set up the interview immediately. I interviewed for a position as a sales person for financial planning services- fee based. i asked why someone would pay for this planning when they could get it for free at Fidelity or Schwab. He did not have a good answer. He did not ask me any questions about my background. He just wanted to tell me about the company and what the goals were. At the interview he said he would send me a link to take a test as the next step in the interview process.

Interview Question – no questions asked that I can remember   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – I did not want a 100% commission job where you have to find your own leads. They said they give you leads, but when I asked, he said it only accounted for 50% of the appts.

The process took 1 week - interviewed at MetLife in May 2010.

Interview Details – The interview first consisted of a phone interview from HR that lasted about 30 minutes, it was a typical behavioral interview. Wanted to know why an interest in Sales. The next round was a one on one interview with the manager I was going to be working under if they hired me. Overall it was a positive experience and I would recommend the company.
