    Long Term Disability Claims Interview

    Negative Experience
    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.

    Asset Management Rotational Leadership Development Program Interview

    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.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Sun Life.

    Interview

    It was a scripted interview and the woman read off of a question sheet. She manipulated the questions to go along with what my resume said. They were basic behavioral questions such as tell me about yourself and what are challenges have you faced and how those challenges were over come. Very nice people that do the interviewing and guided you along through the interview process making it a much better experience.

    Quant Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Sun Life (Boston, MA) in January 2015.

    Interview

    I got referral from one friend so directly had the on-site interview. I interviewed with 4 people in total. The first junior analyst asked me some database and math problems. The other three are more senior so asked me some general questions on work I previously did, my life, etc. The conversation went on rather smoothly but I didn't get the offer. Maybe bad luck.

    Actuarial Assistant/Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Sun Life in September 2014.

    Interview

    The interviewer was an alumnus. There was an initial firm handshake, then the process became "explain your resume in detail." More than 75% of my interview time was spent on just explaining my resume in detail. The interviewer also recommended a few clubs and websites to learn more about the actuarial position.

    VOCATIONAL REHABILITATION CONSULTANT Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Wellesley, MA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Sun Life (Wellesley, MA) in June 2014.

    Interview

    Submitted my resume online, I believe through LinkedIn. Was contacted by phone within a couple of days for an initial screening. Was scheduled for a phone interview later that week and the phone call was about 30 minutes. Very pleasant supervisor that asked typical behavioral questions. It is definitely important to discuss how your current experience relates to them. She said they would start making calls back within two weeks, but I never heard from her again even after sending a follow up note.

    Overall decent experience. They definitely try to filter people out right away, making it very clear what their needs are.

    Financial Development Program Summer Intern Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Sun Life (Boston, MA) in February 2014.

    Interview

    I applied through my career center and received an interview on-campus. My interviewer read strictly off his sheet and recorded answers without ever adding any personal input (even when I mentioned his alma mater, which I later looked up online). I would hope this is not a typical practice in the company's interview process.
