Avis d'employé sur Financière Sun Life
Hard work, but very rewarding for any who really want it
A job as an advisor at Sun Life is not an easy one. My management made sure this was VERY clear from the start. It will require lots of work, long days, and plenty of emotional ups and downs. Trust me when I tell you, you don't understand what I mean by what I just said (unless you've had a similar role or you were a business owner before). Be prepared to get out of your comfort zone. If you don't prospect, you don't have a pipeline. A salespersons pipeline is EVERYTHING. I don't care if you are a golden closer, if you can't get out there and talk to people and prospect, you'll fail before you start. This is not an inbound sales call centre. A day in the life is what you make it. If you don't want to roll out of bed until 2PM and put a few minutes work in, you'll fail. If you are up at 6AM, ready to go, ready to conquer the world, and are okay with coming home or finishing your work 12-16 hours later, you'll succeed. As long as you put in a genuine, effective effort. The hardest part of the job is the self-discipline in takes to succeed. Nobody is telling you what to do.

Long hours, hard work, You could work 40 hours and not make a dime (Unlikely, but possible)
The job is straightforward but the onus is on the Advisor to self-motivate, and to produce your own prospects. If you do not have a large warm market you will find it difficult. Also complex and continuously increasing requirements for compliance with government regulations.
Freedom and opportunity to build a substantial income
You have to be prepared to do the work, and be extremely self-motivated. Also, long hours
Working at Sun Life, they gave me an opportunity to be my own boss. I was given the opportunity to work with the best mentors in the industry. I learned a lot about time management, patience, diligence and perseverance. It was indeed a great work environment at the location I was at.
