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.

    Underwriting Analyst Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at MetLife.

    Interview Details

    I was scheduled for a 1 hour long interview. I met with an HR person first and was asked the basic behavioral questions while she took notes. That lasted about 20 minutes and then I met with an Underwriting Consultant for the rest of the hour. He asked more behavioral style questions but were much more specific than the first set. After answering his questions he said they were hiring about 15 people and looking to have a recruiting class in about a month. He also said that there would be a second interview after I complete some aptitude assessments if I am selected and that the whole hiring process should only take 1-2 weeks.

    Underwriting Analyst Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at MetLife in May 2012.

    Interview Details

    Applied through indeed.com. Called a few days later by recruiter wanting to set up phone interview. Phone interview was done later that same day. Recruiter was EXTREMELY helpful, as my answers were probably not ones that would get past initial screening. Gave me great feedback and gave me tips/pointers for interview.

    Called back later that day for an interview in KC the next day (sounded like they really wanted to fill positions?). Went to Metlife, had short orientation with 4 other people. Went downstairs and had 2 small interviews with 2 underwriting analysts in each. Both asked basic behavioral questions and wanted specific examples. I prolly failed my interview, but I feel they were really wanting to get people into these roles and train them. I didn't even have time to drive the 1.5 hrs back home before I received a call with an offer. Overall, process was simple, took less than a day, and everyone was extremely friendly.

    Negotiation Details
    Didn't negotiate. Seems like an entry level position where they are looking to move you up later, so starting salary was $38k, 10k less than the actualUnderwriters.
