    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Sun Life.

    Interview

    It was a scripted interview and the woman read off of a question sheet. She manipulated the questions to go along with what my resume said. They were basic behavioral questions such as tell me about yourself and what are challenges have you faced and how those challenges were over come. Very nice people that do the interviewing and guided you along through the interview process making it a much better experience.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Sun Life in September 2014.

    Interview

    The interviewer was an alumnus. There was an initial firm handshake, then the process became "explain your resume in detail." More than 75% of my interview time was spent on just explaining my resume in detail. The interviewer also recommended a few clubs and websites to learn more about the actuarial position.

    VOCATIONAL REHABILITATION CONSULTANT Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Sun Life (Wellesley, MA) in June 2014.

    Interview

    Submitted my resume online, I believe through LinkedIn. Was contacted by phone within a couple of days for an initial screening. Was scheduled for a phone interview later that week and the phone call was about 30 minutes. Very pleasant supervisor that asked typical behavioral questions. It is definitely important to discuss how your current experience relates to them. She said they would start making calls back within two weeks, but I never heard from her again even after sending a follow up note.

    Overall decent experience. They definitely try to filter people out right away, making it very clear what their needs are.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at Sun Life (Boston, MA) in February 2014.

    Interview

    I applied through my career center and received an interview on-campus. My interviewer read strictly off his sheet and recorded answers without ever adding any personal input (even when I mentioned his alma mater, which I later looked up online). I would hope this is not a typical practice in the company's interview process.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Sun Life (Wellesley, MA) in June 2013.

    Interview

    I applied through a recruiting base for an Underwriting Internship. I had to take an excel test to see if I had the skills needed for the job. Then I was contacted about setting up a time for an interview. Looks like a typical financial company inside. I interviewed with two head underwriters who were easy going. They asked broad questions about leadership, qualities, where I want to be in 5 years. It is easy to tell how the culture of the company is, they are laid back but results demanding.

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Sun Life.

    Interview

    Interviewed through college campus recruiting. Was surprised at the questions just because none were too specific about strengths and weaknesses, everything was very broad based. Asked a lot about school activities and less about job experience.

    • Asked about school activities and my major specifically, more than just why chose the major   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Sun Life (Wellesley, MA) in October 2011.

    Interview

    I applied through my university's resume drop and attended two info sessions before the interview. The interview was completely behavioral and followed a set script. The two interviewers were young and didn't seem to have much experience conducting interviews. I got a very generic vibe from the employees I spoke with and felt like they use this program to mold people exactly into what they want their middle management to look like.
