    Interview

    The interview process was quick. After 5 days of submitting my resume, I was scheduled on the following day for a 30 minute phone interview. The 2 interviewers were nice and the questions were generally easy. After 3 days, someone from HR called, asked a few questions regarding work and scheduled me for testing and another round of interviews with the team leads.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Manulife Financial in October 2014.

    Interview

    Firstly the call me for the phone interview. Only the basic questions and then they invited me to do the face to face interview. For the interview, only aswering the technical test that needs me to answer flow chart and algorithms questions. If you fail to answer technical test, they will just ask u to back home. Really disappointed with their HR because they make me waiting for the answer but the staff there is quite friendly.

    Interview Questions

    • Flow chart question is quite confusing because it needs u to calculate the number in the box. And most of my time was spend to create the box using the ruler.   Answer Question

    Interview

    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.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Manulife Financial (Waterloo, ON (Canada)) in June 2014.

    Interview

    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.
