    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university - interviewed at CIBC in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied through my college/ university website. Got an interview call after a week. It lasted for 30 mins. Interviewed asked me 3 questions on projects I worked on in the past and few resume questions. We talked about his vacation and what this job is related to and what sort of things cibc is looking for. Its been more than a week but I haven't heard back from them yet. Hopefully, they will reply me soon. I would recommend to apply and see you fit in the company. As they don't expect you to know everything, even if you don't have technical don't worry. They don't care if you know or not

    Application Details

    I interviewed through other source. The process took 1 week - interviewed at CIBC in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    I was working as an intern for a team, when my intern term was reaching to the end, someone told me that their team was hiring fulltime, then I went to talk to their manager directly. The manager had been already impressed by my work for we had some cooperation on some inter-team projects so he decided to give me an interview with then director.
    They asked me some pretty routine questions such as skills and teamwork.
    Several days later, I got the employment package.

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 1 week - interviewed at CIBC.

    Interview Details

    The interview took place over phone. I was interviewed by two people, one from HR and the other from the technology team that I would end up working with. It was fairly standard; the first half involved me being asked about my previous work experiences from my resume and general behavioural questions related to those. The second half consisted of technical questions about programming - fairly basic questions about the principle of object oriented programming

    Financial Services Representative II Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 3 days - interviewed at CIBC in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    The interviewers asked questions about my resume and work experience. Then we had to role play a situation as if I was the representative behind a desk and the interviewer was a client.

    Interview Questions
    • Was most surprised by having to role play a scenario. They focused more on the discussion you were able to have with a client, how well you listend, and judged your response to their answers. In one scenario, the client kept mentioning her husband, so it was best to suggest setting up an appointment with him there. They were not focused on the actual banking products since they will teach those in training.   Answer Question
