I have been working at Unum full-time
Great benefits, fast-paced work, ability to advance within company.
Spend most of time at your desk.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Unum (Portland, ME).
It was a great process. It started with a phone interview with a staffing specialist and after that was done I had an in person interview with the hiring manager and also the operations manager. It was a relaxed feeling for the in person interview.
