    Interview

    Rigorous process that began with on campus recruitment and ended with structured interviews with a handful of managers. Nothing especially difficult, although they drew from a large pool of applicants and had a group interview where group members had to work on a project together,

    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.

    Reasons for Declining

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

    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.

    Senior Campus Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Wellesley, MA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Sun Life (Wellesley, MA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and within a few days, I heard back from the Recruiter. I had two 30 minute phone calls - one with the Recruiter and another with my (future) manager. I went to two in-person interviews and met with 3-4 senior mgmt leaders. From the day I was contacted to the day I was extended the offer, it took about one month so that wasn't bad at all.

    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.
