    VOCATIONAL REHABILITATION CONSULTANT Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Wellesley, MA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Wellesley, MA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Sun Life in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Financial Development Program Summer Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at Sun Life in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Underwriting Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Wellesley, MA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Wellesley, MA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Sun Life in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Rotational Leadership Development Program Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Wellesley, MA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Wellesley, MA
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Sun Life in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Interview Details

    Initially had one interview with HR rep at my school. Went well. Casual, friendly, they focus almost entirely on personality, communication, leadership questions. They want to know what kind of leader you will be, how you will manage, how you work in groups, how well you deal with conflict/people, etc. Very little to no questions on business knowledge. They are focusing on people skills.
