    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at BMO Financial Group in March 2015.

    Interview Details

    1. applied online: submit resume to their website
    2. Digital interview: very nervous when I was doing it as you have to talk to the camera. A lot of behavioral questions asked.
    3. Online assessment: pretty easy, but you need to focus and followed the instruction. About 45 mins - 1 hour or so.
    4. Phone interview: went through resumes, asked when you left certain jobs; why work for BMO; have you lived in other countries for more than xxx months etc.. Pretty easy. Like 15 mins.
    4. Face to face interview: it's like a combination of Digital interview and phone interview. Asked your background (education and work); ask behavioural questions

    (just had it so still waiting for their phone call)

    Customer Service Representative Interview

    Interview Details

    It was a phone interview. It was fairly straight forward. The interviewer was very nice and helpful. The questions were behavioural in nature. They asked about a time I had encountered a difficult situation in the workplace. They didn't ask me to tell them about myself, which I was kind of hoping for as I had a very good elevator pitch prepared!
