    Associate Director Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Wellesley, MA (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Sun Life (Wellesley, MA (US)) in October 2011.

    Interview

    Long process, disorganized HR department, showed lack of communication between HR and Hiring managers. Managers asked basic, easy questions. Not overly difficult. Not all parties were available, so had to go over 2 days
    interviewers seemed unprepared, underqualified.
    asked beginner level questions for company of this size.

    Associate Director Project Management Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Wellesley Hls, MA (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Sun Life (Wellesley Hls, MA (US)) in October 2009.

    Interview

    One phone screen with HR recruiter followed by an on-site interview. On-site interview consisted of a case study that required me to outline the business problem and present a functional and technical solution to a panel of interviewers. One my presentation was complete, the panel asked me a series of typical interview questions.

    Interview Questions

    • The case study was the most difficult. Only 45 minutes to lay out a solution and determine how best to present it.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    In this market, there was not much room for negotiation. That said, the package they offered was generous so I didn't feel much of a need to push back.

    VOCATIONAL REHABILITATION CONSULTANT Interview

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

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Sun Life (Wellesley, MA (US)) in June 2014.

    Interview

    Submitted my resume online, I believe through LinkedIn. Was contacted by phone within a couple of days for an initial screening. Was scheduled for a phone interview later that week and the phone call was about 30 minutes. Very pleasant supervisor that asked typical behavioral questions. It is definitely important to discuss how your current experience relates to them. She said they would start making calls back within two weeks, but I never heard from her again even after sending a follow up note.

    Overall decent experience. They definitely try to filter people out right away, making it very clear what their needs are.

    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer

    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.

    Interview Questions

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

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sun Life (Wellesley Hills, MA (US)) in May 2013.

    Interview

    Entirely fit questions. Was referred to SLF through a friend and was pleasantly surprised by the application process. The typical "walk me through your résumé" questions were there, with certain more pointed questions about past experiences. No technical questions of which to speak

    Interview

    Interview process was pretty straight forward. Basic questions about experience, how to manager your day, how would you handle different situations, strengths and weaknesses. Why are you the best candidate, why should we hire you. etc. How would you manager your team, how would you react to these different situations?

    Interview Questions

    • There were no unexpected questions. I guess the one to differentiate yourself from others is always tricky.   Answer Question
