Financial Services Representative Interview
I applied online – interviewed at CIBC (Toronto, ON (Canada)).
Got an email and asked to set up interview the next day with a specified time. It was a basic interview, the hr recruiter was reading off her questionnaire and typing the answers as I spoke. Interview ended well and she told me I would be contacted by a branch manager within two weeks or else to contact her. Its been more than two weeks now and haven't heard back from either.

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at CIBC (Toronto, ON (Canada)).
First there was a phone interview, took about 40 minutes, lots of behavioral questions. Then a face to face interview that had a 30 mins questions session and a phone call role play that resulted in a sale. Hiring manager and a VP were doing the interview. Overall, a good experience, standard questions like where do you see yourself in 5 years etc. Why do you want this job? Why should we hire you?
- Why did you not work for 2 years? 1 Answer
Advised me about salary and hours, had to sign a few documents. Reference check was after that.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at CIBC (Halifax, NS (Canada)) in July 2014.
Interview process involved a role play scenario. Interviewer was highly critical. Interview was great up until the role play was brought into the interview. Hiring process was for the most part painless. You must open an account for payroll. Was charged service charges before first pay. The critic by the interviewer was quite harsh. Role play felt very fake.
- Request to a role play scenario. Answer Question
Firm offer. No negotiation

I applied online. The process took a week – interviewed at CIBC (Windsor, ON (Canada)).
Applied through the CIBC careers page. Received an email within a day or two regarding phone interview. This email was very professional and it clearly stated when the lady would be calling me and to confirm that the day/time was good.
The phone interview was easy and personable. The interviewer was "warm" but not phony, asked decent questions regarding my resume and cover letter. Not one question blindsided me. She told me she liked my tone and she liked what I had to say, and stated that she would recommend me for an in-person interview.
The in-person interview was a mixed bag. Two people interviewed me, one was nice and articulate, the other, a younger fellow was cold, had a snobbish air about him and clearly wasn't interested in me (I felt it right away). The questions were not too difficult, but they were very much all about the same theme "am I really OK to call X number of people a day to score 4 meetings a day"? A question in particular that turned me off from the interview right on the spot was when he asked me what I would do if I didn't meet the quota for the day. Quota? At that point I was merely respectful but made zero effort to impress.
Didn't get an offer, which I agreed with. I wouldn't have hired me either as per questions making it clear that this was not going to be a good fit for my talents and skills.
- What would you do if you didn't meet the quota for the day? (referring to making sure that I always had at least 4 meetings booked as per the 30-60 calls every day I'd have to make to get my "clients" to come and meet with me so I could sign them up on credit cards, etc.) Answer Question
