    Most all the questions were behavioral. Be prepared to go into your resumee in detail as they will ask you about past internships and projects. I had two phone interviews one day after the other and heard back from them within 4 days.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sun Life (Worcester, MA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Phone interview first, then drove 3 hours to be interviewed by 2 managers. Interview seemed to go well. Some behavioral questions, some open-ended discussion of my qualifications and experience. We spoke for over an hour and they seemed interested, said they would be in touch. I sent thank-you notes immediately. I never heard another word. Disappointing after the amount of time and expense I invested in applying for the job.

    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.
