    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Unum in October 2013.

    Interview

    I applied through the taleo page. A few days later, I received a call from a recruiter. She went over a few preliminary questions, and set up a phone interview with the hiring manager. 2 days later, I was told that they wanted to move forward and they sent me a tech screening assessment that was multiple choice to see where your skills lie. I scored around the 70th percentile. I got a call back the next day and they sent a personality assessment that was very strange and really long. (sever hundred questions, and puzzles that you had to give an answer to). After that, I was called in for a face to face interview. Once arriving I was led into a conference room and had a meeting over web camera with people from multiple different offices and locations. That interview was on a monday, I received an offer about 3 days later.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Unum (Dallas, TX) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Over the phone easy questions about my resume. Interviewer was very nice and passionate about the company. Asked questions based on previous experience and position I held in college (it was an entry level position). Overall, really good interview, but the company ultimately wasn't for me.

    Interview

    I sat in a room with 2 people while they asked me similar, basic interview questions for an hour. I felt like I kept repeating the same answers so I felt like it wasn't going too well. But they called me back the next day with a job offer.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Unum in August 2014.

    Interview

    The interview was conducted on Skype. Asked questions that were clearly geared toward someone in the field, not a senior in college. Not hard interview, but was not conducted in an efficient manor.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Unum in January 2013.

    Interview

    Typical HR processes which include automated emails and very little details about keeping you interested in the role. They should engaged applicants more, this might make for a better hiring experience. Sending questionnaires that are general and have broad questions doesn't really reveal much about the ability to do the job. I declined to carry on with the interview process as I do not like cookie cutter company practices and a HR that seems to be okay with not following simple manners to replying to one simple email.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Unum (Portland, ME) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Unum does have a longer process for interviewing, This is only because they are determined to find people who are fit well into the company. First they will look over your application, they will sometimes have a phone interview to determine if they would like you to come in for an in person interview. The phone interview is set-up with Human Resources, depending on the position you are applying for, they might have you take an online aptitude test. Once they would like to meet you, they would have you come in for an in person interview with your potential manager.
