Rotational Leadership Development Program Interview
I applied through college or university – interviewed at Sun Life.
It was a scripted interview and the woman read off of a question sheet. She manipulated the questions to go along with what my resume said. They were basic behavioral questions such as tell me about yourself and what are challenges have you faced and how those challenges were over come. Very nice people that do the interviewing and guided you along through the interview process making it a much better experience.

I applied online. The process took 1 day – interviewed at Sun Life (Newton, MA) in November 2013.
Phone interview followed by a superday composed mainly of general fit questions followed by a group case study. Seem to be looking for upbeat, articulate, intellectually curious candidates. Company was incredibly helpful in orchestrating logistics from my university which is located a bit off the beaten path, to their HQ.

I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Sun Life (Wellesley, MA) in October 2011.
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.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Sun Life (Waterloo, ON (Canada)) in October 2012.
Standard set of behavioral questions. Very friendly interviewers - First Round consists of an HR Recruiter and someone from the business. Questions are standard across candidates and the flow of the interview was more of a question-answer type.

Rotational Leadership Development Program InterviewNo OfferEasy Interview
I applied through college or university – interviewed at Sun Life (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in October 2012.
First round is behavioural. 2 interviewers. Easy company questions such as why SunLife, why this program. Simple situational questions such as "tell me about a time you were leading a team", "... worked in a team", how I manage school and extracurricular activities, most challenging aspect from work experience and how I handled it. Second round is a networking session at SunLife location. I believe there is a 1 on 1 final round with the executives afterwards.

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at Sun Life in November 2011.
After applying online, I received an email informing me of the opportunity for an on-campus interview. The interview was conducted by 2 SL employees - one HR and one from business, and comprised of approximately 45 minutes of behavioural questions. After a few days or so, I was notified by phone that I had made it to the second round, which would be held in their HQ in downtown Toronto and consisted of a day's worth of activities, including 2 interviews (each conducted by 2 people - 1 HR and 1 from business), as well as breakfast, lunch, networking, and listening to SL executives speak.
