Rotational Leadership Development Program Interview

Rotational Leadership Development Program
Wellesley, MA

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed 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.

Rotational Leadership Development Program Interview

Rotational Leadership Development Program
Toronto, ON (Canada)

I applied through college or university - interviewed at Sun Life in October 2012.

Interview Details – 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.

Interview Question – Tell me about a time when you faced a change in responsibilities and how you handled it   Answer Question

Rotational Leadership Development Program Interview

Rotational Leadership Development Program

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Sun Life in November 2011.

Interview Details – 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.

Interview Question – Provide an example of a time you demonstrated leadership.   Answer Question
