    Nurse Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bloomfield, CT
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at MetLife (Bloomfield, CT) in February 2016.

    Interview

    A phone screen, a face-face interview, and a phone interview with the hiring manager. They seemed very happy with me but I still haven't heard from them. I contacted the recruiter a week after he was supposed to get back to me with a decision and he didn't respond to my email as of now. They also changed the job requirements, which I believe means that none of the candidates on my batch was good enough....although they were planning to train new people.

    Interview Questions

    • Many behavioral questions requiring examples, and skills I possess that make me a strong candidate for the position   Answer Question

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at MetLife.

    Interview

    Had a phone interview with HR. Asked generic questions and seemed to care less what I was saying. Got in person interview with manager 1.5 weeks later and an offer 2 weeks after that. Overall almost 2 months start to finish. This is a great company to work for and they have awesome benefits! Try to make yourself stand out because chances are the manager you interview with has seen a dozen or more other candidates. Make them remember you!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at MetLife.

    Interview

    Phone screen, Behavioral questions, background check. The recruiters are pretty good depending on who you are working with. If you get the job, offer is communicated from hiring manager and not recruiter typically. Recruiter just phone screens you and makes recommendation to hiring manager.

    Financial Planner Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bellevue, WA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at MetLife (Bellevue, WA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    First interview was a phone interview, second was an in-person interview at the office, third was an interview in the office. The third interview was a very very frustrating experience and felt completely disrespected. I went through a third party recruiting company for this role and Metlife asked for the third interview be rescheduled, which was fine. I drove an hour and forty five minutes in traffic to get to the interview, made it a few minutes early. I checked in and waited just over 5 minutes to meet with the person that was going to interview me. The interview lasted 6, I repeat, 6 minutes. The second interview lasted an hour and went very well, even asking me to let them know if I get a job offer from another company. This third interview, she didn't even have a question for me. She asked if I had any, which I did, then just said "Well, that's about it! Thank you for coming in today and take care!" I don't mind not getting a job offer but when the company is aware of a candidate living that far away and already knowing you won't be moving forward with them, have the decency to tell the candidate.
