    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Sun Life (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    Was contacted by a lady in HR about 2 weeks after applying for the position. The woman was very nice, asked mostly behavioral questions. The phone interview lasted about 30 minutes and was invited to the second round a week later. Overall pretty easy. Make sure you have a general understanding about the company.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Sun Life (Wellesley, MA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Phone interview
    Pretty basic interview. Begin with logistical questions and then behavioral questions. The overall process took about 40 minutes.
    Questions were pretty much basic behavioral questions: why Sun Life and why this program? Why did you choose this college and this major? What is your biggest achievement? One challenge during a past internship experience.

    Human Resources Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cambridge, MA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Sun Life (Cambridge, MA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    While very organized the process is lengthy. 3 phone interviews, 3 in person interviews to corporate office and 1 onsite interview with 3 different principles. I only note interview as difficult below because average potential candidate may not be able to maintain the energy level it takes to interview dynamically for 4-5 hours straight. Also , keep in mind that they post jobs they are not entirely motivated to fill and will interview you as if there is a sense of urgency when in truth they won't fill the job for 5,8 or even 9 months down the road if at all. And during that waiting period you will not be communicated with or told why the decision is taking that long. You will see the job re-posted several times across many job boards. You will ask recruiter for update (s) only to be told they will have an answer next week; however next week does not arrive at 5 months and counting. So you will ask again and be told next week. Repeat this every 30 days and you will get the same answer.
    Sun Life: Get it together and be professional! If you are truly looking for a new hire then don't leave your prospective candidates hanging. Communicate exactly what is causing delay, give feedback to those whom you do not want to hire and/or close the posting. If your interviewing people just to get ideas on how to correct your internal challenges from others that's not professional either.

    Technically they still haven't decided to make an offer but at 5 months they still tell me I'm being considered. LOL!
