    Interview Details

    Responded to questions on Taleo. Interview process: HR, Hiring Manager, Panel Interview with peer group. Interviews were very honest about the company culture. Fit seemed to be as important as technical knowledge, experience and education. All interviewers presented a very accurate picture of what to expect. Overall, the process was smooth and relatively quick.

    Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Waterloo, ON (Canada)
    Anonymous Employee in Waterloo, ON (Canada)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Manulife Financial in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    This was an extremely long process. After applying online it took about a month to hear a reply. 2 weeks later there was a 30 min phone interview regarding background, salary expectations and an deeper explanation of the direction the company was taking. Next step was a 3 person interview about 3 weeks later. Interview was held at their Waterloo office and lasted 1 hour. They asked several competency-based interview questions, asked if I had any questions and then the interview was over. About two week waiting time to hear a response as to the position being filled. A little over a 2 month process.
    The entire process was riddled with inconsistency and the hiring manager seemed a bit disorganized. Confirmed dates being missed, feedback promised and never fulfilled, interview questions being read off of a piece of paper and clearly just plucked from a website. That being said the interviewers themselves were pleasant and did not make the process uncomfortable. It would have helped to have more information about what kinds of things to expect at the interview.
    Looked like a nice place to work, however, it seems evident that they are not very organized with the interview process yet, seemed very off the cuff.

    Human Resources Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Manulife Financial in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was originally referred to the position by a Manulife employee. I submitted my resume, cover letter & recent transcript. I had an initial phone screen with the recruiter to discuss the position and if I had any initial questions. We discussed general things like my availability, salary expectations, whether I was pursuing any other opportunities.

    From there I scheduled a phone interview with a Director in the dept that I would work closely with. This was a more formal interview with structured questions. Many questions were behavioral and I had to bring up a lot of examples that prepared me for the responsibilities of the present role. As a recent graduate I used a lot of project experience from school in my answers. This interview was around 30-45 min.

    The recruiter contacted me following this to discuss and set up the next interview, in person, with the Assistant Vice President of the dept - who I would report to if I was successful.

    This interview was a bit more informal and more conversational about my interests and why I was interested in the open role and why I think I would be successful if offered. This lasted about an hour.
    He indicated there were other candidates also interviewing and would get back to me within a week.
    Within a few days the recruiter called me to offer me the position. I negotiated my salary and start date and accepted the position.
