    Excellent and caring Management. Genuine interest in staff development and growth. Much emphasis upon learning and desire for each employee to contribute and participate in department goals and objectives.


    Routine daily responsibilities can sometimes become boring.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Sun Life (Waterloo, ON) in April 2016.


    The interview started with a standard phone call from HR lasting 30 mins, followed by two in-person interviews that were an hour each; one with the direct manager and another with two peers on the team.
