    Intern - Hourly Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tampa, FL
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at MetLife (Tampa, FL) in February 2018.

    Interview

    I had 4 phone interviews in total. One with recruiter, another one with someone from department I applied to but in other city, and two last ones with managers of the department I applied to. I wish process was shorter. I think two last interviews could be merged together. Overall, not too difficult. Talk about myself, my achievements, some behavioral questions.

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at MetLife in June 2010.

    Interview

    I got the interview through a recruiter and the company preferred candidates with a MBA degree or at least in the progress of getting it. The first interview was with the HR on general behavioral questions. The 2nd interview took place a week later and I was interviewed by 3 members of the hiring team. Again, it was a straight up behavioral questions.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at MetLife (Charlotte, NC).

    Interview

    Communications before interview were quick. Interviews are held off-site currently. Interviewed by two people separately on the same day. There seems to be an odd focus on money as a motivator, but otherwise pretty standard and friendly people.

    Interview Questions

    • Think of a time when you tried to convince someone to do something but it didn't work. Describe that situation, and thinking back on it what would you do differently to change the course of events?   Answer Question

    Senior Tax Accountant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Saint Louis, MO
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at MetLife (Saint Louis, MO) in November 2016.

    Interview

    It was great, but long. Because I had applied for two positions, I met with two people for one position, then two people for the other position, and then their supervisors.

    MetLife has its own dedicated recruiters, so when I say I was contacted by a recruiter, it was their own recruiter. Scheduling and the initial phone interview were easy and relevant.
