Working at Metlife

  • sincitymel 7 months ago
    I have just applied for the licensed inbound P&C sales job posted for Las Vegas / Henderson. I'm experienced in this line of work and I'm looking for base salary plus good commission. Can anyone share what this job pays and is it straight salary or straight commission or what? Thanks new-to-sin-city-Mel

    Every business has it's own style. What is the office environment and culture like at MetLife? Are people dressed in business casual, jeans and t-shirts, or full-on suits? Do folks get together for Friday happy hours and friendly get-togethers? What is a typical day in the life of an employee at MetLife?

    What do you think -- is this company going to survive and thrive? Are they looking to expand their staff, or do you think layoffs are inevitable? How does MetLife stack up against the competition?

    Once you have passed you series 6 test and life, health and annuity state test. You are hired. On my first two weeks I called several of my past client's and two were ready to apply for life insurance. I asked the 'trainer' how I would go about this over the phone since the people lived over 25 miles away. He stated, 'we don't sell over the phoe' and walked away. I then thought well, I guess I'll drive to their home. So I set the appointment. Let the 'trainer' know and he said great and handed me a life application packet. That was it! No instructions; these are the questions we ask, these boxes need to be checked, schedule a parmed, etc. I went to the client's home, sat there with the application and opened it. Did not have the first clue. Called the office to go over each page, over the phone with the 'trainer'. This is your training. Another way they train is partnering up with a 'seasoned' agent. You bring deals to them. And you split 50%/50% of the commission. That's it. So pay attention to everything they do. There is no sit down side-by-side going over scenarios. Then there is the wholesale rep. who comes in once a month. The wholesale rep. works for MetLife on salary, who worked in the trenches as an agent or manager at some point with MetLife, before the 'do not call list' and the caller ID machines, before the economy took the plundge...they sell you on Life isurance and Annuities or Disability for two or three hours. Your eyes will glaze over eventually listenig to all of this. They will give high dollar scenarios; such as a multimillionaire needing a 1.Mil. policy at $20k a month premium payments. And then after awhile you will start asking yourself, 'Where are all those millionaires needing these large policies? You will be told that they provide leads, base leads including existing client's. These people are tired of being called and will let you know it.

    I just had a phone interview with the Metlife Recruiter, and I am wondering how quickly I will be contacted for an in-person interview. Or to be told that I am no longer considered. The Recruiter told me they were passing my info on to the hiring manger? Any advice would be greatly appreciated?
