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

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at CIBC.

    Interview

    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.

    Interview Questions

    • the hardest part was the questions on having previous sales targets.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    it was very simple and went easy

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at CIBC (Winnipeg, MB (Canada)) in August 2012.

    Interview

    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.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    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.
