    The interview process was fast and in depth. The manager was respectful and did his best to get to know me. He made it a point make me feel comfortable and relaxed by casually talking before the in depth interview. This helped calm my nerves and made him far more easy to relate to.

    Financial Services Professional Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at MassMutual.

    Interview

    Got a call within a few days for some initial talk and invite for face-to-face interview. Was given 10 surveys to be filled out before the second interview to prove that I had potential markets. This was difficult for me because I didn't know who to turn to besides family members. They want to know that you can be in contact with people who can actually afford to buy insurance products. Interviews were pleasant and easy.

    Mobile Developer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at MassMutual (Boston, MA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    This was a waste of time.

    Before they even look at your résumé they ask you to complete a coding exercise. You have to build an app that interfaces with the NY Times API and displays a list of searchable headlines which, when tapped, produce the article's content. They allow third-party packages.

    I completed the exercise in about 15 hours and then submitted it. After 1 day, I received an invitation into the office.

    I was told the interview will be "low-pressure". It's not at all. It's a panel interview. I was also told I would be asked to add a feature on to the app. That also didn't happen.

    When I arrive at the office, I learn that no one has even seen the app. The excuse was "it uses third-party frameworks, so it wouldn't run". But, I got it out of one guy that he didn't even try to run the app (gee, thanks). I wrote the app in Swift and I used the Swift dependency manager, Carthage. Most folks who work with Swift are familiar with Carthage, but in the event they were not, I wrote instructions in a README to explain the process. They also didn't read the README.

    They asked me to walk them through the app and to explain the code behind it. Because I had assumed my app would have been reviewed, I also assumed they would have prepared questions for me to answer to help direct the conversation. Nope. I had to explain hundreds of lines of code to folks who are just now seeing it for the first time. Since I wasn't prepared for that situation, I did a lousy job. I couldn't explain anything clearly. That was my fault for not preparing, but, I don't think that would've changed the outcome.

    As expected, I received a rejection email a couple hours later. The reason was my skills were not senior enough.

    Because they never reviewed my app, I don't even know why they brought me in.

    I feel like the decision to bring me in went like this: "He wrote some code but we can't prove it works because we don't care enough to find out. What the hell, bring him in, I got nothin' to do today anyway."

    My advice is if you are asked to complete a coding exercise, __demand__ compensation so Mass Mutual if forced to give a damn, otherwise, they'll just lead you on.

    Also, don't wear a necktie (I wore one) and definitely don't wear a suit. They kept cracking jokes about neckties the entire interview.

    And don't interview on a Friday like I did. The team works from home on that day.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at MassMutual (Springfield, MA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Straight forward, apply on line , answer a bunch of questions on my academic and work and salary history, followed by phone screen, then interview with multiple people at the head quarters. The people you meet seem reasonable, no trick questions, not stressful. Interview process was ok all in all. Recruiters were professional and were able to answer my questions about the company and its culture.
