    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Sun Life.

    Interview

    The entire interview process probably took two to three hours. First and foremost, I met with two senior level people who interviewed me for about an hour. Secondly, I interviewed with two other employees for an additional hour. After the main part of the interview was complete, I met with Human Resources to go over any additional questions I had at the time.

    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.

    Application

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

    Interview

    Interviewed through college campus recruiting. Was surprised at the questions just because none were too specific about strengths and weaknesses, everything was very broad based. Asked a lot about school activities and less about job experience.

    • Asked about school activities and my major specifically, more than just why chose the major   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sun Life (Wellesley, MA) in October 2011.

    Interview

    I applied through my university's resume drop and attended two info sessions before the interview. The interview was completely behavioral and followed a set script. The two interviewers were young and didn't seem to have much experience conducting interviews. I got a very generic vibe from the employees I spoke with and felt like they use this program to mold people exactly into what they want their middle management to look like.
