    Interview, 2 test, and then another final interview. Very casual interview with manager in which the manager give you a brief overview of the roles of financial advisor. Then, you will be asked to take a test to see whether you are satisfy as a advisor or sales position. Once thats done, you will be emailed another test. Passing both of those test will grant you a final interview with the head of the branch office.

    Marketing Communications Interview

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

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Sun Life in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    I had two interviews with Sun Life; I was scheduled for a 3rd but declined for a couple of reasons which I will explain. However the people you will meet if you happen to interview for a Marketing role are very professional and enthusiastic about the company. The 1st interview was with HR and they were very professional and asked you the standard HR related questions - no real surprises. The 2nd interview was with the hiring manager who again was professional and upbeat. No real interview surprises however be prepared to answer questions around industry experience - if you don't have any insurance experience be prepared to address this gap. I found the biggest challenge with their interview process is the amount of time it took to go from interview #2 to the final interview - because of the amount of time it took I had already moved on in both my interest in the company and had accepted an offer elsewhere so the company needs to be quicker in their process or risk losing good candidates.

    Interview Questions
    • Be prepared if you get to the final interview - they will ask you to do a marketing plan and present it; this is one of the main reasons I declined the final interview as I understand/get it that they want to see how you perform in the job and this is a way of simulating that but that's what I thought they had probationary periods for?   Answer Question

    Manager, Financial Reporting Interview

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

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Sun Life in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    They changed the telephone interview day/time 5 times, and seemed quite disorganized in that part of the process. Once that got sorted, and set all was well. The recruiter called me right at the agreed upon time, and was professional. As would be expected for a phone screening, the questions were high level and general (why do you want to work here, what appeals to you about this job). I was called within a couple of days for an in person interview which was with the hiring manager and a peer. Although they had a list of specific questions to ask, they took no notes, and so the interview felt very much more like a conversation. Both experiences were very positive.

    Interview Questions
    • Fairly typical and predictable questions. I was extremely well-prepared, so nothing took me by surprise   Answer Question
