    Inbound Sales Personal Lines Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Charlotte, NC
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at MetLife (Charlotte, NC) in April 2018.

    Interview

    Filled out application online and a week later received an email inviting me to a phone screen with a recruiter. The phone screen was about 20 minutes long, mostly going over the position details as well as a couple questions about my background in insurance. Received an email the next day to move forward with a face to face interview the following week. My face to face was with two hiring managers, one in person and one on speaker phone (he was remotely located at the Henderson location) To me, this was the easy part as our interview was more like a conversation. Both managers did a really good job breaking down the job specifics and giving realistic expectations. I did appreciate that they weren’t super stiff and dry (i hate stuffy interviews) and actually talked to me instead of it feeling like an interrogation. After the face to face, i got an email a couple days later to schedule a time to speak with the director of the general agency (round 3). The interesting part about this is they had Saturday times available which i accepted. I figured they wanted to see if i would take time out of my weekend to speak with her, especially considering the next times available were a week later. Anywho, everything paid off and i was offered the position:)

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took a week. I interviewed at MetLife (Orland Park, IL) in August 2014.

    Interview

    There is an interview and then an aptitude test where they rate you 1-10. If you do not score above 7 MetLife ends the process. You can reapply in 6 months. The aptitude test takes approximately 2 to 3 hours to complete. It is not a joke but very technical with multiple trick answers. There is some math and a lot of psychological questions.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at MetLife (Raleigh, NC).

After that they set up a technical interview, about two weeks later, with two different people. One asked programming specific questions, the other asked data and analysis specific questions. Once those were complete, they told me it would be at least a week to two weeks before I heard anything.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at MetLife in January 2014.

After a couple emails, each one asking again for a phone number, they finally did call and the interview lasted for 4 questions. 1. was I legal to work in US. 2 Will I need a visa. 3 how much do I currently make. 4 what is my salary requirement. I told them 60k was my minimum, which is below national average, but after this she "noticed" that I will not be available for 3 months and ended the interview.
