    Sales Trainee Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Charlotte, NC
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at MetLife (Charlotte, NC) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I received a phone call from a contracted HR representative. She actually forgot to call me the day before, so I had to set up a second interview. I was told if I passed that stage of the interview, they would set up an on-site interview in the coming weeks.

    Interview Questions

    • It was basically just a phone conversation about my current position and what it encompasses. Standard, cliche questions like "my greatest strength" or "tell me about a time you faced a challenge..."   Answer Question

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at MetLife.

    Interview

    The process took some time before the company scheduled an initial interview. The interviewers seemed prepared and were pleasant. They were interested in explaining how the job worked and the types of tasks that would be worked on. Overall they seemed like they were trying to give a good overview of the types of responsibilities and tasks that would be required. They seemed like they enjoyed working at the company as well.

    Customer Solutions Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Tampa, FL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at MetLife (Tampa, FL).

    Interview

    You'll complete a phone screening with recruiting; be ready to discuss your resume and be familiar with the job description you are applying for; if chosen, you'll be scheduled for a face to face interview with the hiring manager. In this case we meet as a group of about 8, discussed the job over PowerPoint, then round robin interviewed for about 10 minutes with a couple of managers to total 3 rounds.

    The interview style used was STAR method. Research this and become familiar with the questions asked under each topic. Have scenarios ready to discuss for example, how does organization work for you? Tell me about a time when you've escalated something? What is your greatest strength or weakness? Why do you want this job? How do you rate our systems? How do you handle adversity in the workplace? And many more provided in the study topic of the STAR method.

    When you pass this, an additional interview will be scheduled with the higher management as well. Be prepared to talk about the same but pinpoint some areas. Good luck!!

    Senior IT Auditor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Jersey City, NJ
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at MetLife (Jersey City, NJ) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Got in contact with a manager who connected me with the team recruiting for the position. The recruiter contacted me within a week and scheduled a screening call with the hiring manager on the same day. This was more of a informative call. A few days later, I was scheduled to have 4 back to back interviews with 3 managers and the VP. The interview revolved around my IT experience with cloud infrastructure and a few behavioral questions. I managed to answer all of them with aplomb and was sure of getting considered for the role. Got a reject call a week later, with no explanation whatsoever. The manager never replied to my mail regarding feedback.
