    Interview Details

    Team was very negative. Instead of questions about my background, it felt more like I was being attacked and challenged. The way they spoke to each other gave me a number of red flags. When their boss joined the room, it did not improve.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at BMO Harris Bank in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    She had a set of questions she just read off. She didn't really listen to me because I'd provide information and she'd ask me a question like I hadn't given her the information. Happened twice. Was she too busy? Then, she didn't give me a chance to ask questions. Bad interviewer.

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at BMO Harris Bank.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process was long, about 2 months and I met with most of the Team members. However there is a firm wide tendency to exaggerate the autonomy being provided.

    Personal Banker Interview

    Interview Details

    attended a job fair at BMO's new building in Naperville, IL off of I-88. After talking with several hiring managers in various departments, I finally talked to someone in Collections who wanted me to schedule a formal interview for the position of Loan Collector. I met with someone from HR who scheduled me to meet with the hiring managers in the office in Rolling Meadows. I interviewed with 2 managers who were both asking me questions.

    Their questions were fine--nothing you wouldn't expect in an interview. Soon, we came to "So what questions do you have for us?" That's when I started to doubt that this was a good fit for me. I asked them "What is the culture like? Is it a fun place to work?" The answer I got was not convincing. It was almost like they were trying too hard like, "It's REALLY fun. No, I swear. People LOVE it here." I'm not buying it. When I asked if I could spend a few moments out on the sales floor to see what the work environment is like, they politely declined, saying that my request wouldn't be possible. Well now I'm definitely uncomfortable. It's like they didn't want me to know what I'd be doing. Sorry, I'm not going to leave my current full-time job unless I know what I'm getting myself into.
