    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at MetLife (Marcy, NY) in March 2017.

    Interview

    The interviewing process was very nice and relaxed, they made me feel at ease. At first I was a bundle of nerves as I was out of practice in the whole interviewing process.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at MetLife.

    Interview

    Long process with minimal communication from HR. Completed several phone interviews and aren't 3 weeks without a word from anyone. They involved the team I was interviewing for specific questions.

    Overall a long but fair process.

    Interview Questions

    • Their engineers are knowledgeable and asked specific questions about the field I was interviewing for.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I interviewed at MetLife in October 2012.

    Interview

    Typical. It was with the recruiter, then the hiring manager, and then a behavioral interview. Based on my schedule this occurred over two weeks. It would have nice to accomplish this in a shorter period of time as I had to take off time to interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Actions that indicate I am a collaborative manager   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Minimal. Start date. Salary was not negotiable but it was fair.

    IT Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cary, NC

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at MetLife (Cary, NC).

    Interview

    For a management position, what I found was a very chaotic, disorganized, and unprofessional interview process. In the end Metlife could not offer anything close to my salary expectations which were generous relative to my current salary (at least 25% under).

    This is how my phone interview was done. My first interview was scheduled for 30 minutes. To start it off, the interviewing manager was 15 minutes late to the call. Five minutes after my interview started another interviewee joined the conference line. The other interviewee was totally surprised that another interview was taking place. After that interviewee left the conference call my interview was cut down to 10 minutes. Closer to the top of the hour more people started joining the conference call and the interviewing manager abruptly ended the call.

    Another piece of information that folks should know about the jobs Metlife is offering in the triangle. These jobs were held by people in other locations being paid at much higher salaries. Metlife is hoping to relocate those jobs to North Carolina and save money by not paying competitive wages. Also you should be aware that these jobs are not free. Just search Google for the huge tax break Metlife gets for each North Carolina employee they hire. Tax breaks that North Carolina residents have to pay for.

    As a long time North Carolinian, and tax payer for over 20 years, bringing Metlife to the triangle feels like a misuse of public tax funds.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at MetLife (Cary, NC) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Strange interview based solely on behavioral interview processes with multiple sessions conducted by different interviewers asking the same set of questions. Interviewers were management from other departments and seem detached.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell us about a difficult situation and how you handled it.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at MetLife.

    Interview

    The interview process was straightforward. The first interview was a phone interview, and there were then two other interviews that were face to face in the office. No Skype interviews.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions were typical interview questions. Nothing too difficult that would throw you for a loop. If you practice ahead of time you will be fine. Try to highlight previous experience, and/ or skills, as they don't ask you questions about this directly, but it is implied.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at MetLife (New York, NY) in May 2012.

    Interview

    I was compared to many students from several colleges citywide. But it was a normal interview. No pressure. Only difference is that everything was out in the open. The salary, flexibility, expectations, etc. I suppose, since it was an interview for an internship they didn't hold back much like most interviewers would. It was very helpful. One other supervisor that I interviewed with flat out told me that I'll only do what she wants me to do. There was no room for flexibility or days off, etc. Harsh. But the others were very cordial and understanding.

    Interview Questions

    • Its a pretty standard interview. Practice the usual interview questions, and you'll be fine.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    All internships are paid the same. Its a 6 month paid internship. There's no better way to complete your coursework.
