I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Sun Life in March 2013.
Interview Details – Applied for the position online through corporate website. Got a call from the HR Coordinator about 1-2 weeks later to schedule phone interview with HR Partner. The HR interview lasted about one hour and spoke about my resume in length along with why I want this position, and a lot of behavioral questions. Two business days after i received a call from HR Coordinator again to schedule an in person interview with the Reporting Manager. Interview was scheduled later that week and was much more laid back than the phone interview. A lot of behavioral questions and questions about your style of leadership but at the same time a lot of small talk as well trying to get to know you as a person. Once that interview was over, I was told they would get back to me within a week but 2 business days later again, the HR Coordinator reached out to me schedule a 2nd F2F interview with the Reporting Manager's Boss (Director). came in to speak with the director a couple days. more of high level, strategic, leadership styles, problem resolution type questions. was told that the decision would be made within a day or two as the director was going on vacation. I never got a call the next day which i gathered meant i had not gotten the job and sure enough early the following week the reporting manager would-be called me and said they had gone with the other finalist. a week after the call the reporting manager had sent me an indepth email providing feedback on my interview which i thought was really cool. overall, interview process was very quick, great organization to work for, really wanted this job. oh well.
Hope this helps

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Sun Life.
Interview Details – Applied online and was contacted by a sales manager with a short phone interview.
Went through a formal interview, then a series of online testing, aptitudes for an advisor and another test for manager.
Then met with the manager of the centre,
I refused the position since for me, it sounded more like a scam than actual hiring process for a sales professional to coach and manage a sale force. They wanted atleast six months on the field, then you go on a probation period as an associate manager, so I was not going to be in the manager shoes for two years, and yes they have replies to all objection, sun life products are not like the competitors you must handle them, the advisors must trust you etc. etc.
