    Applied online, got an email the day afterwards about scheduling a phone call interview.

Questions are fairly easy, goes through your resume and asks you some behavior questions from you past experiences.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at CIBC.

    Interview Details

    The interview is the long process with this company. It took 5 months before i was actually hired and a month of running around cause they wanted to. the interview was really easy. I believe that besides from the complication with the hiring process and the securities checks it was fairly easy.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at CIBC in September 2012.

    First start with Phone interview. Most questions are behavior question. For example, what is your career goal in five years; what is your weakness; why do you want to work at CIBC; what is your understanding for this position; give an example about how to handle a difficult client. The Phone interview is about 30 min.

    For the face to face interview, interviewer still ask a lot of behavior questions. Be sure to know company and prepare the role play question.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at CIBC in August 2012.

    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 Questions
    • 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.
