I applied through college or university and the process took 1 week - interviewed at BMO Financial Group.

Interview Details – All through campus recruiting. First round on campus, second round in Toronto. First round was just a resume review, and a couple of questions, namely the prices of certain commodities and to talk about an equity you like and why. Round two was a typical 4 interview day, where 3 were behavioural and one was technical.

Interview Question – Just technical accounting and finance questions you'd expect in a finance interview. No brain teasers.   Answer Question

The process took a day - interviewed at BMO Financial Group in May 2011.

Interview Details – There is not much time for the interview though there was no time for pleasantries and to build rapport, the hiring manager and the HR person took the time to let me answer in detail, ask for more details and let me ask several questions.

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at BMO Financial Group in June 2010.

Interview Details – I was interviewed by the hiring manager, who would be the direct manager if I get the offer. He has been managing the department for 3 years but doesn't know a bit about the technology. As I can imagine the interview was not relavent to any technological details and the converstation was pleasant. A couple of days later, I got a call from him and was asked to come for second interview with the director, who was new to the position and basically focused on behaviour questions. But after that, the manager was gone for vacation for a few weeks. When I followed up with the director, she kept saying that the decision had to be made after the manager returned. When he's back, he ignored my following-up and a couple of weeks later, I got told someone else got the offer.

Interview Question – How do you handle a situation which you and your boss don't see the solution the same way?   Answer Question
