Interview

Weird arrangement, called me for interview, done with it, then invited me to interview for the same post via JobBoard few days later, felt like nothing have ever happened. As expected, only a waste of time for so-called interviews

Interview Questions
  • Normal questions but seems the interview process will go forever and no results, meanwhile, the company keep hiring for same posts

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Sun Life

Interview

Initial phone screen with recruiter was very straight forward. Simple questions regarding experience, education, what you’re looking for in next role. I found the conversation very pleasant and felt it was more of a “get to know me” than a structured, formal interview.

Interview Questions
  • Tell me about a time you had a conflict at work, and how did you resolve it

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sun Life (Toronto, ON) in Jan 2023

Interview

No interview. I received rejected email two weeks later. I doubt the main reason is they filtered by experience only. Quite disappointed. I think at least HR should call me for further understanding about me.

I interviewed at Sun Life (Toronto, ON) in Jan 2023

Interview

Human resource person contact first - first round of interview. Then, second round of interview is with the hiring manager plus one other person. Questions are mostly around past experiences. Some techinical questions. Hiring manager was not very familiar with video interviews - lack proper eye contact etc.

Interview

very confusing and contradicting to what the position stated. they basically said they will be taking all your money but you will not be classified as an employee. I think they should make it Clear in the job posting that your not a advisor with the company you are more of a canvasser outside of the company.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Sun Life (New York, NY) in Dec 2022

Interview

Basic info about company. Answered questions about position. Discovered this job does not pay for training and only pays commission. It does not compensate for travel. The company has only been in business for 4 years. The interviewer did not know the words “cold call” or “canvassing” even though that is what you would be doing.
