    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at CIBC in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    The interviewers asked questions about my resume and work experience. Then we had to role play a situation as if I was the representative behind a desk and the interviewer was a client.

    Interview Questions
    • Was most surprised by having to role play a scenario. They focused more on the discussion you were able to have with a client, how well you listend, and judged your response to their answers. In one scenario, the client kept mentioning her husband, so it was best to suggest setting up an appointment with him there. They were not focused on the actual banking products since they will teach those in training.   Answer Question

    Did not have phone interview as it was a promotion. Usually, there is one. Intervied the HR Manager, and the process was straightforward with alot of behavioral customer service types of questions. Knowledge of financial products is needed.

    Interview Details

    The interview is the long process with this company. It took 5 months before i was actually hired and a month of running around cause they wanted to. the interview was really easy. I believe that besides from the complication with the hiring process and the securities checks it was fairly easy.

    Interview Questions
    • the hardest part was the questions on having previous sales targets.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at CIBC in August 2012.

    Interview Details

    I was turned down several time because of age -- they tend to hire people in their early 20s. Once that "flag" was removed (I knew someone there), they immediately offered me a position. They wanted to make sure you were used to a "sales floor" environment and would follow unquestioningly.

    Interview Questions
    • They will ask a lot about cold calling and how comfortable and experience you are. Also about tracking your sales.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    None. They offered me a wage and I asked if I could counter that and they said they only offer the top dollar and they would not go higher.
