    I had a interview with the sales director and he was very friendly. He described how much he loved his job,which is good. The part that is uneasy is that after 6 months it is commission only.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at MetLife (Pensacola, FL) in June 2015.

    Interview

    The interview itself went well. I spoke to the local manager for over an hour, and was offered a job on the spot. I asked for a little time to talk it over with my wife, he agreed to as much as a year to get back to him. I followed up with a call the next day--no response. I had to call several times over at least a week to hear back from him. Talking to corporate was not much better. They seem very disorganized, and unmotivated to get training started.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at MetLife (New York, NY) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Had an initial phone interview, which consisted of very general questions, and then had to complete candidate testing. The testing asked questions like 'how long have you lived in your neighbourhood', 'how are you currently involved in the community', 'how many contacts do you have on your phone, fb, linkedin', etc. I did not pass the testing as I had to put everywhere that I am new to the US and have only been in NY for a couple of weeks. They like people who have a lot of contacts in the area they will be working in so that you can sell to them. The fact that I had inlaws in another state did not matter as I was applying to sell financial products in New York and my license would work in NY only.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at MetLife (Denver, CO) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Not a very extensive interview process. I wasn't asked any type of interview questions, mostly just a couple questions regarding my past employment and education. The process only included testing for certain licenses (Series 7 and Life, Accident and Health) and explaining what the job position/responsibilities included. Once I expressed interest in the job position and obtained my licenses, I was hired.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at MetLife.

    Interview

    Mostly conversational to get to know you. Then they took me on a tour of the office and described what each person did. The key to the second interview was almost like a homework assignment to go over things of the company.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at MetLife in January 2015.

    Interview

    I was to be interviewed by a Managing Director, but after a 45-minute wait a Financial Services Representative took me to a conference room for a chat. While waiting I observed that employees looked unhappy, stressed out and hurried, some were poorly dressed.
    Selling insurance and annuities on commission is extremely tough and offers the worst earnings yield per time and effort invested anywhere in Financial Services.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at MetLife (Pittsburgh, PA) in December 2014.

    Interview

    Real laid back, met with a recruiter for lunch and she described the job. They are looking for younger people to get in this field. Only problem is that it's a dog eat dog industry and no one will help you unless you can make them money.

    Negotiation

    No negotiation, 6 months stipend, after that it's straight commission.
