    Interview

    Choice of either a phone interview or to go to their office in downtown Toronto. Chose to go down to their office just to find out that it was still a phone interview. That being said, the interview consisted of being told a lot of info about the company and the position rather than being asked a lot of questions. Although it was a little confusing it went well.

    Analyst Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Manulife (Waterloo, ON (Canada)).

    Interview

    I applied online, directly to Manulife and received a phone interview within 4 days. After some basic behaviour questions, I moved onto the next round with a 1:1 with the Hiring Manager. Following that, I had a 1:1 with the Director of the team and that was one of the most difficult interview of my life.

    In my opinion, be prepared for technical questions always, especially if your job description just mentions it.

    Interview Questions
