Intern Interview (Neutral Experience)
I applied through college or university and interviewed at BMO Financial Group.
Interview Details – Got a really late call (May) and lady seemed rushed to do the interview. I already expected to not get an offer so I'm not sure why they bothered to call back so late in the game. I do like BMO I just felt like I should have been treated more fairly instead of rushed through the phone.
Interview Question – There were only casual interview questions like "Tell me about..." Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I had to prove a previous job offer details to get more compensation upfront.

Service Manager ( Teller Manager ) Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at BMO Financial Group in November 2013.
Interview Details – Applied online and about a week later received email from the recruitment network requesting a phone screening. This portion of the interview process was all done by email. The recruiter (from a third party vendor - aonhewitt) gave her availability and I replied back and she confirmed. After the initial phone interview, which consisted of the usual behavioral questions, she informed me she would forward her notes to the hiring manager. If he was interested, he would contact me. The recruiter was friendly and helpful. She let me know that if I was invited to interview with the manager the questions would be more of the same, but more aggressive.
I did get that second interview, and had a great rapport with the branch manager, but did not get the position. The interview lasted an hour and was more behavioral questions (i.e. specific examples of what you did or how you've handled past experiences). They do NOT want to hear what you WOULD do.
Both the recruiter and the hiring manager were very truthful in that they both told me there were several candidates for the role and many internally. I did appreciate this information. Overall, the experience was positive and I will continue to seek other positions within this company.
Interview Question – How did you handle an employee who did not like you or was difficult? Answer Question
Analyst Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
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
