    Technical Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at MetLife.

    Interview

    Applied through my university's career site. Easy process to setup an interview. There were also many other students there to interview. It was a big operation, there were like 4 or 5 different recruiters there interviewing students every 30 minutes. The interview was very generic, and it wasn't very clear what the different positions were. They were just considered "technical" internships. Just basically asked about past projects and other basic behavioral interviews.

    Annuity Specialist Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at MetLife.

    Interview

    The interview was easy and laid back. The interviewer made me feel welcomed. I interviewed on a Friday, so most of our conversation was not pertaining to the job-it was general. I had about 4-5 behavioral questions to answer.

    Lead Test Consultant - Test Architecture Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cary, NC
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at MetLife (Cary, NC) in September 2017.

    Interview

    I applied in June and the interview process took almost 2 months with 5 rounds and different job title changes from what I applied for. Finally I got an offer, but did not meet my expectation of what I was told initially and had to decline, as I was bit confused and the timeframe to decide was too short. But the very next day I reached out to the recruiter showing interest to accept the offer and I was told it was too late.

    Really? After so much of interview process, they could not afford to wait for a day, which kind of disappointed me.
    Otherwise, I appreciate the interviewers and the offer, if given another opportunity will wish to work for this company. It was a good learning experience being a first timer in this job market.

    Senior Customer Service Representative Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at MetLife (Charlotte, NC) in August 2017.

    Interview

    This was the longest interview process I've ever went through. First was a phone interview, then you had to pass a long assessment (took over an hour and a half), then once you pass you speak to the manager on the phone, THEN you meet with another manager in person. This process was a waste of time because I ended up receiving no offer at the end. I feel that you shouldn't take a person through that long of a process if you have no intentions of hiring them.

    Customer Service Representative Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at MetLife.

    Interview

    The interview process was very lengthy and included a series of in person interviews plus an even longer personality quiz. The interviewers seemed very new and didn't offer much information on the company either. It seemed very cookie cutter and the personality test seemed to be the basis of their decision process.

    Compliance Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at MetLife (New York, NY) in July 2017.

    Interview

    I applied via the company website. Was contacted by a recruiter two days after applying. After phone screening was setup for an in person interview by a separate contact in HR. Very smooth process until this point. The in person interview was one of the worst I have ever been on. I thanked the interviewers for meeting with me during their lunch hour and they proceeded to laugh and say they don't eat lunch at MetLife. I should have ran from there. The interview continued to go down hill. They didn't ask many questions about my experience. It seemed more like they were trying to sell the job to me. The interview team did not look happy in the slightest. Glad I was no extended an offer.
