Director Training Interview

Anonymous Employee
Noida

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 days - interviewed at MetLife.

Interview Details First the HR round, then depending on the process type there would be a voice round if not then direct with the concerned process Manager or AM available if yes then with a V&A trainer and then the process Manager.

Interview Question – Hope you would not be taking or asking for leaves for at least 6 months.?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Yes i was ready to negotiate as when I had joined they had just flourished as an individual company. However, now since its being single there has been major cost cuttings in salary. So it might be difficult getting the required or wished package.

Financial Advisor Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Milwaukee, WI (US)

I applied through college or university and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at MetLife.

Interview Details Got a call from a recruiter very polite and professional asking for a one-on-one interview which I accepted. The first interview went well and was asked to take the online assessment, which was rather outdated and long and to me seemed somewhat irrevalnt to the position at hand. I declined a second interview based on my acceptance of another job

Interview Question – A lot of question about driving customers   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – Wasnt what I wanted to do

Interview Question – Most questions were behavioral(Except technical interview).Technical interview was simple with very less focus on current job responsibilities.   Answer Question

Low visibility of the job and the responsibilities.
Extremely long hiring process.

Financial Representative Interview

Anonymous Employee
New York, NY (US)

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 7 months - interviewed at MetLife in January 2010.

Interview Details The process was an active bait and switch method. The recruiter made warranties that were not meant or met. There was a social dinner and then a series of meetings that only postponed the start of compensation but required time and money. The recruiter admitted years later that the pitch was exaggerated. The culture of abuse started at the interview because the comments described a strategy detached from the reality. They use the Snoopy logo to lull people to believe their hype.

Interview Question – Why do you want the opportunity?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – The negotiation was totally one-sided. It was take it or leave it and bait and switch with very little candor.

Very Easy Interview

Client Service Representative Interview

Anonymous Employee
West Des Moines, IA (US)

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at MetLife in September 2011.

Interview Details I was referred by a friend online. A third party HR company does the phone screening. Phone screening was easy, just went over position, current background/education. They then contact you for an actual interview about a week later. The interview for a CSR is conducted by a supervisor or an Annuity Analyst. The interview was very simply. Mostly behavioral questions but none that required a complex answer.

Interview Question – There was no difficult questions. I found the interview to be surprising simplistic compared to other companies. I guess just the standard, "What is your biggest weakness?" is the most challenging question.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No salary negotiation. I was right out of college and this was an entry level position into MetLife.
