    Senior Business Planning & Strategy Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bridgewater, NJ
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at MetLife (Bridgewater, NJ) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Had phone interview with recruiter a few weeks after I applied. Then had another phone interview the following day with her manager. Then had an in person interview about 2 weeks later (was rescheduled a few times on their part). Had a great in person interview experience. Hiring manager was very friendly, showed me around, and introduced me to team members. He even mentioned to one that he was trying to convince me to work there. Left the interview feeling very confident as he mentioned that he would bring me in for 2 more interviews (one with someone on his team and the other with HR). After 2 weeks went by and I didn't hear anything about the additional interviews, I followed up with the recruiter, but he never responded. Received a very generic email 5 weeks after the in person interview that indicated that they would not be moving forward with my candidacy for the role. At this point, the generic email was annoying to receive so long after the fact, I already assumed that it wasn't an option. Would have appreciated it much more if the recruiter just responded to my follow up and indicated that they went in a different direction.Really liked the hiring manager, but he was misleading and his positivity just left me confused in the end.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at MetLife (Bridgewater, NJ) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Interview was only 30 minutes, did not get to real experience or to know the individual. This was an internal application interview for a job replacement due to an organizational shift. The interview was not situational and was more of just trying to get the basics. I was not offered the role.

    Actuarial Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Bridgewater, NJ
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at MetLife (Bridgewater, NJ) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Phone screen interview and then an in-person interview with 3 people. I originally applied for a position that I was not qualified for. When I went through the phone screen, I mentioned that I did NOT have my ASA and to let me know if there was an opening for something more entry-level because I didn't want to waste mine or the companies time. They called me back for an in-person interview. I was very confused because they never mentioned anything about my qualifications and not having an ASA. The recruiter didn't have much information for me either (didn't want to take a PTO day for a position I wasn't qualified for).I ended up going to the inveriew. I had an interview with the VP of the group I applied for, a team member and then the hiring manager last. When I interviewed with the hiring manager, that was when I found out I was being interviewed for a different position. I wish I would have known from the beginning. Anyways, all of the interviews were very laid back. No hard interview questions, just feeling me out. I was extended an offer the next day.
