Customer Contact Agent Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied online and interviewed at BMO Financial Group.

Interview Details – The hiring process is very straight forward:
- 1 phone interview
- 1 face to face interview

they asked me the typical questions for both interviews:
- tell us about a time where you demonstrated leadership
- tell us about a problem you encountered while working with a group and how did you resolve it
- tell us about your exposure/performance in a sales driven environment

Interview Question – they really ask all the generic questions which are really easy to prepare for. Just be sure your french is alright if you're in QC as they'll change languages halfway through each interview   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – i didn't negotiate but asked for a raise after my probation period
