If you’re ready to make life matter and be challenged to develop solutions that matter most to you, at MetLife, you can. Join us in leading the way.


At MetLife, we’re focused on meeting the needs of our customers. We call it customer centricity. For everyone to succeed together, we know we have to set standards of excellence for identifying our employees’ individual opportunities, and accomplishments too. That’s why we implement new technologies to collaborate and share our goals publicly, and recognize customer success stories from within our team. We’re breaking down silos, challenging assumptions, and finding new means to succeed locally and globally.

We’re also investing in realizing the potential of our people by training our top leadership on how to support individual professional development. As an employer of choice, we have developed professional trainings and personal development calendars. We also recognize professional achievements with even greater opportunities to make an impact. So we’ll challenge you to make your goals and your career matter more to you.



At MetLife, meaningful work with real impact isn’t reserved for just a few. We are committed to creating a culture in which every member of our team has the opportunity to make a difference to the success of our business. We’re developing leaders who act inclusively, encouraging others to forge their own ideas and motivating our people to live their dreams both professionally and personally.

To become a world-class company, we’re building a work environment on shared values, one that engages all our team members to help people pursue more from life. This extends to special programs in the regions in which we operate, such as MetLife Foundation’s enduring support for communities in the wake of natural disasters. It also impacts the way we celebrate the diverse communities within our own organization with strong and active Employee Resource Groups. Discover how you can join us.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at MetLife (Tampa, FL).


    The process begins with a recruiter that completes any required testing for your position. Once these requirements are satisfied there is a phone interview followed by two in person interviews. One with immediate management followed by one with upper management. They require professional attire at the interview. No visible tattoos and natural hair color.
