    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at National Bank of Canada (Ontario, CA) in December 2014.

    Interview

    Got a phone interview
    Then a one-on-one interview
    Then a one-on-one with the branch manager.

    The interviews were very easy but the last interview with the branch manager was something else... He was SO incredibly rude, did not make me feel comfortable AT ALL and after interviewing me, he said he was looking for someone who knows how to build client relations and since ive only worked in big companies he didnt think i could get the job done. I got a call a few days later asking me to come in to sign a job offer and i refused it. If this branch didnt want me in the first place, i wasnt about to accept the positon. Maybe it was my single experience but national bank needs to train their employees on how to give interviews. The people at the branch were also very rude to me, i felt unwelcomed. Glad i dodged a bullet! Never settle for a job, keep searching til you find the right one for yourself where you are treated with respect :)

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at National Bank of Canada.

    Interview

    2 interviews, an HR screening interview and then, if you pass that, the real interview: with a director.
    He or she will probably ask the usual stuff, financial knowledge, technical acumen. The more you know, the better, obviously. Depends on your background: if you are financial study technology a bit. If your technical, try to improve your knowledge of financial markets. There's a million books. Pick a few, read them. Learn the stuff. People depend on you.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at National Bank of Canada (Montreal, QC (Canada)) in September 2011.

    Interview

    They want to see if you can sell anything to anyone. Cross-selling is really important. All the financial analysis thing is not important. Learn the basic of financials and you will learn it on when you get hired.
