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.

The managers blamed me for failing at this career. They didn’t train, the staff are arrogant and think they are better than everyone. If you like selling cars and being a greasy car salesman I would recommend this job to you. Come to Sun Life and sell your soul to the devil where if someone can’t afford life insurance you should lock them in your office and force them to sign. Talk about a scam. Good luck if you want to be hated and hate everything about your job. Just think your family member dies and Sun Life says you aren’t approved. They don’t tell you, you have to sell 10 products to get contracted, you pay for your office, if you don’t sell they bill you $1000 per month.
Does nothing count?
Does everything count?
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.
Great training, Great culture, Great management
Long hours, hard work, You could work 40 hours and not make a dime (Unlikely, but possible)
just to even be signed on you have to provide them with a list of 100 people and phone numbers, and then another 45 referable people on top of that. You also need to be able to make 5 sales before they will even sign you on, so make sure you know 5 people who need life insurance
long hours, have to know a lot of people
Don't work for Sun Life Financial. They are a bunch of scammers. They charged you even for the air that you breath. They use the excuse of levels for not to pay you! I just quit after a year. They even charge you if a client cancels. They charge you for 10 years if you remain in the company, they charge you for office space, coffee, photocopies, Fax, your training. The government should look after these scammers! Even their president just Quitted!
Long hours, no pay, no benefits
Running your own business, are responsible for all aspects of the job. Very long hours. Can be very rewarding if willing to learn and put the time and effort in (60 + hours/week)
run your own business, make own hours, unlimited earning potential
100% commission, you will always be working!
A typical day at work would be waking up and making some cold calls and calls to prospects that are already interested in doing business with Sun Life. Booking appointments and driving to clients homes is another big aspect as being an Advisor at Sun Life
I love working for SLF however being an advisor is extremely difficult. If you don't have a proper prospecting plan in order you will find yourself in debt/out of the company soon.
Your own hours
Your manager could be awful
The workplace culture at SLF is unmatched! Being employed by such a large, identifiable and impactful company, has it's many appeals. In a sales or marketing role, the brand sells itself. Management, from my experience, has been very supportive.
This job is great and a dream job for the right person. It is straight commission, so you will do well if you know enough people, aren't afraid to talk to new people, and can consistently motivate yourself to do what is required for you to succeed. The managers are wonderful and are there to guide you and point you in the right direction.
Time Freedom, you make your own schedule
It's straight commission, no stable pay cheque
