    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    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.

    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.

    Customer Service Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Irvine, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Irvine, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Sun Life in December 2010.

    Interview Details

    Hiring and interview process was smooth. Recruiter for Sun Life was from a third party company. Recruiter was friendly, prompt and communicated with me frequently. Quick progression through hiring process. Interviewing was comfortable and professional. I had two interviews with the recruiter. The first interview lasted almost 60 minutes. The face to face interview was arranged at my convenience - late afternoon - to accommodate my work schedule. The face to face interview was with the company president. I had to call her to obtain details on the directions. She was very understanding because the office was difficult to locate within an office park. She spoke well of Sun Life and explained the history of the California business unit with Sun Life. She also described the corporate culture. I had a very realistic idea of what it would be like to work for Sun Life and what my day to day job would entail.

    Interview Questions
    • There were no unexpected questions. The most difficult question is being asked why I should get the job. Prepare a concise, to the point answer.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    The recruiter asked what I expected. The hiring manager made an offer. I accepted. I would suggest more negotiation and make sure the bonus mechanism is thoroughly explained.
