    Financial Development Program Summer Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    No Offer
    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Sun Life (Boston, MA) in January 2014.

    Interview

    Several phone interviews followed by a super day; the super day involved five or six 1 on 1 meetings and a time-boxed group research and presentation project. Most questions were standard personality questions - no technical questions. The team was very friendly and projected a 9-5, comfortable vibe. I ended up declining to pursue an alternative career.

    Underwriting Assistant Interview

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

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sun Life (Wellesley, MA) in June 2013.

    Interview

    I applied through a recruiting base for an Underwriting Internship. I had to take an excel test to see if I had the skills needed for the job. Then I was contacted about setting up a time for an interview. Looks like a typical financial company inside. I interviewed with two head underwriters who were easy going. They asked broad questions about leadership, qualities, where I want to be in 5 years. It is easy to tell how the culture of the company is, they are laid back but results demanding.
