Sales Trainee Interview
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at MetLife (Irvine, CA) in March 2015.
On campus interview, followed by second round interviews at the Irvine office. There was an online assessment test prior to the second round interviews with a mix of verbal reasoning and math problems. Math problems were heavily based on sequence analysis and pattern recognition. After the "final round" I was invited to meet with the regional VP for a final chat.

Had one in person, on campus interview. Need to be very interested in sales for this job. If you're not, they will be able to tell and will not offer you the position.

I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at MetLife.
I was contacted by a recruiter and asked my reasons for wanting the position. After answer that, they invited me to have a phone interview. However, they never contacted to set up the phone interview. Then, they emailed me to have an on campus interview. When I showed up for the interview the recruiter had not written me down on her schedule, was unprepared and argued that we were not supposed to interview. We had the interview anyways although it was awkward because she was in the middle of lunch and did not have anything ready. Unsurprisingly, I ended up not getting another interview.

I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months – interviewed at MetLife (Austin, TX) in October 2014.
I found out about the position from a campus recruiting event. My resume was passed on to a recruiter and I got a career fair follow up email. I then applied online and got an email asking to schedule a phone interview. The phone interview asked basic questions and was really nice. During the interview, I was even given feedback and a lot of encouragement. Subsequently, I got an email asking to set up an on campus interview. It was one on one and very conversational. After that I received an email to set up a Dallas regional interview over Skype.

I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at MetLife (Boston, MA).
There is a 4-step interview process. Once you submit your resume, if they like you, they will call you. There are two phone interviews, one on-campus interview, and a final interview at their main office. They cut people after each round. They start with over 2000 applicants and only hire 20.
- Not a question per say, but the third interview wasn't like a regular one. It was also like having a a social conversation, which was weird. 1 Answer

I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months – interviewed at MetLife (Atlanta, GA).
Applied online through my University's career center website. Emailed a few days later saying I had been selected to interview for the position. First interview was on campus, one-on-one with Program Director. Very conversational and informal. Was told it would be a few months until the final round interviews would take place. Had final round interview a month and a half later at the corporate office. Half day consisting of six back-to-back thirty minute interviews with a few breaks in between. All interviews were very conversational, not a lot of behavioral or situational type questions. Really just want to get to know you as a candidate and for you to get to know MetLife as a company. Was called a few weeks later with an offer.
- Extremely conversational, just be yourself! Was asked why I wanted to work in the Insurance industry and why I wanted to work for MetLife. Answer Question
