    Project Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Cary, NC
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at MetLife (Cary, NC).

    Interview

    Had a phone screening shortly after applying, and was invited to interview at end of screening. I was taken on a tour of the GTO Offices before my interview. I felt very comfortable asking questions and learned about the company and position during the tour and interviews. I had three rounds of interviews. The first was a panel of two people. The questions were more behavioral with one or two scenario-based questions. The second was one-on-one and was more focused on my prior work experience and skills, and the last interview was one-on-one and was the most difficult.

    Senior Business Planning & Strategy Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bridgewater, NJ
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at MetLife (Bridgewater, NJ) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Had phone interview with recruiter a few weeks after I applied. Then had another phone interview the following day with her manager. Then had an in person interview about 2 weeks later (was rescheduled a few times on their part). Had a great in person interview experience. Hiring manager was very friendly, showed me around, and introduced me to team members. He even mentioned to one that he was trying to convince me to work there. Left the interview feeling very confident as he mentioned that he would bring me in for 2 more interviews (one with someone on his team and the other with HR). After 2 weeks went by and I didn't hear anything about the additional interviews, I followed up with the recruiter, but he never responded. Received a very generic email 5 weeks after the in person interview that indicated that they would not be moving forward with my candidacy for the role. At this point, the generic email was annoying to receive so long after the fact, I already assumed that it wasn't an option. Would have appreciated it much more if the recruiter just responded to my follow up and indicated that they went in a different direction.Really liked the hiring manager, but he was misleading and his positivity just left me confused in the end.

    Director of Enrollment Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at MetLife (Bridgewater, NJ) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Interview was only 30 minutes, did not get to real experience or to know the individual. This was an internal application interview for a job replacement due to an organizational shift. The interview was not situational and was more of just trying to get the basics. I was not offered the role.

    Financial Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Brooklyn, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at MetLife (Brooklyn, NY).

    Interview

    Really dragged out interview. Took about 3 weeks and 4 train rides. The whole interview overall was easy. The guy called me up and scheduled an interview with me. Eventually I had to do a personality test basically rating how much connection I have to a pool of people since selling insurance you literally are a salesman and this is just another product- but commissions make it worthwhile. They mess you up on the licenses since you have to pay for your Life and health and all costs associated with it- application, scheduling, etc. they also require the series 7 and 66- which they pay for however the study materials is all you. And then and ONLY when you have all 3 licenses will a 6 month stipend kick in. If you got an offer don't be quick to get out of your current job- make sure you have all licenses first
