    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at MetLife.

    Interview Details

    I applied through the college career services center during my senior year. The process included an initial on campus interview followed by phone and in person interviews. I was brought to the regional headquarters in Richmond and offered the position. The entire process was quick, straightforward and relatively easy. There were no brain teasers or unexpected questions. The interviews were all conducted by very outgoing HR representatives and I never actually met with another financial adviser.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at MetLife.

    Interview Details

    Very proffesional interview process, although a bit lengthy. I was set up for a phone interview for about 20 minutes then was told they will let me know if I made it the next round of an in person interview. About a week or so later, they called me back to set up the interview. I met with 3 people, all of whom were very nice and proffesional. Then after about 2 months with a few follow up emails I was finally told they made someone else an offer.

    Sales Trainee Program Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Interview Details

    I was initially interviewed on campus where I was asked why sales? I had no idea, but was able to sell my motivation to succeed the employer. She became a little condescending, giving me backhanded compliments like, "you have a great personality, but I'm afraid you aren't tough enough". It was strategy. I advanced to the final round of interviews where 8 people were interviewing for about 3-4 slots. We interviewed with 6 different people for 30 minutes each, then had to give a presentation on something we were passionate about. Between rotations we were asked to "hang out" in the conference room with the facilitators of the process- some lower-level employees who assisted in the organization of the program. They told us to get to know them and be ourselves, but I think they were watching us closely.

    Applied online, via their website and my universities job board. I did a 30 minute phone interview, mostly behavioral questions. Then you take an online skills test. Then I was asked to do a final interview, I thought it would be with an actual person, but it was with a video conference with a manager. It was also pretty behavioral. No curve ball questions.
