    Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Manulife (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Over the phone interview with two recruiters and then an in-office interview with three people. Despite sending several emails inquiring about where they were in the process, there was limited follow up from HR. It made me question if the lack of communication and indecision was indicative of what it would like to work there.

    Although their job posting indicated that Manulife wants to be innovative and transition to digital, those I interviewed with talked more about the challenges of being a matrixed environment. The questions were mostly about whether you can influence others and less about how you could help them solve their problems. They seem to want to hire from the industry.
