    Interview

    3 stages of interview, initial phone interview with HR, second interview was with hiring manager and senior BA, third interview was with Hiring manager and VP. I declined offer as I got a great offer elsewhere and didn’t want the job anymore. However Aviva was great. It was more like a conversation. There hiring manager was great but took forever to respond to schedule follow up interview

    Team Leader Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Aviva Canada (Calgary, AB (Canada)) in February 2018.

    Interview

    I had a screening call with the recruiter then I met with the hiring manager and a panel of interviewers at the Calgary branch. Both interactions were professional. Interviewers prepared well for the interviews and they had very good questions to ask. Ultimately I did not get the job; the hiring manager called me herself to inform me of the outcome. I was fine with the outcome; the issue was that I travelled from another city by car to attend the second interview. I got stuck a couple of times in the snow due to the weather conditions. The worst was on the way back. I got stuck for 4+ hours. The cost of towing and my day-off work was around $800. I informed Aviva afterwards of my cost and the difficulties I faced in travelling; they did not even bother offering some kind reimbursement of my expenses. All I got “sorry to hear about your circumstances”. Overall it was a mixed experience. I am going to be writing another review as the hiring manager suggested that I meet with another hiring manager (based in Toronto) as they were looking for a casualty corporate underwriter

    Middle Management Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Aviva Canada (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Lots of questions about what I did in the past not what I can do for them using past experiences (good or bad). Passed one interview with a senior manager, then went into a another one with some group peers. That was a disaster. They repeated few of the questions I got in the first interview to ensure that I didn't lie. They claim using modern processes but none of them had a clue what were talking about. Both failed to maintain eye contact and their body language showed discomfort and lack of interest. My questions were not answered properly. They showed up with laptops in the interview and one took notes without being involved. Both interviewers seem threatened by me and protective of information they release. Overall I didn't find to be a structured interview that helped them to identify what I can really do for the organisation. .

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Aviva Canada (Scarborough, ON (Canada)).

    Interview

    Telephone interview by a very condescending recruiter. She called me for one position; 3 weeks later she call me to set up an interview for another position.

    I walked into the interview as prepared as I could be without any help from the recruiter. THe director & hiring manager were very nice & i thought the interview went well. I left being told I would be called within the week.

    Another 3 weeks passed no response. I called the recruiter back & she tells me she had left me a voice mail the day before.

    Aviva you need to hire more qualified recruiters who take their jobs seriously & promote your company more professionally.
