    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at BMO Financial Group.

    Interview

    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.

    Service Manager ( Teller Manager ) Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at BMO Financial Group (Mundelein, IL) in November 2013.

    Interview

    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.

    All through campus recruiting. First round on campus, second round in Toronto.

Round two was a typical 4 interview day, where 3 were behavioural and one was technical.
