I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1 week - interviewed at CIBC in October 2013.
Interview Details – I was turned down several time because of age -- they tend to hire people in their early 20s. Once that "flag" was removed (I knew someone there), they immediately offered me a position. They wanted to make sure you were used to a "sales floor" environment and would follow unquestioningly.
Interview Question – They will ask a lot about cold calling and how comfortable and experience you are. Also about tracking your sales. View Answer
Negotiation Details – None. They offered me a wage and I asked if I could counter that and they said they only offer the top dollar and they would not go higher.
