    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Scotiabank.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and got a e-mail after 2 weeks to schedule a telephone interview. Three days after the 1st interview I got the 2nd interview. I will have my last face-to-face interview tomorrow. Once you get contacted, the process goes very fast and straight foward. HR person was really friendly.

    Interview Questions
    • lots of behaviour questions from the 2nd phone interviews that were unexpected. Have to give many examples such as tell me a time you got into conflicts and how you resolved? Describe me a time when you need to set up a goal and how did you achieve it? Tell me a time where you spot a problem and what did you do to prevent or stop it?   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Scotiabank in May 2012.

    Interview Details

    Way too long. It took me nine weeks from application to offer. First you must apply online, I strongly recommend getting your csc and cph beforehand. They give you a pre screening interview, from there they will give you an online questionnaire. In total the phone interview will last an hour and a half. Then you will have to do an online background check. From there you will have to do a panel interview and from there you will have to wait up to 10 business days to hear back from them.
