I applied online. The process took 1 day – interviewed at CIBC (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in June 2015.
The good thing about CIBC is that they contact you through your e-mail first to set up the phone interview and you can reply with your desired interview time. Quick phone interview, followed by in-person interview that took half an hour behavioural questions and role play. The interviewer was late in interviewing me by 5-10 minutes.

No technical question asked. They are nice and easy on intern students. I had lunch with the interviewer and it goes smoothly. Focus on your resume and make sure you know everything if you are an intern like me.

I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at CIBC (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in June 2015.
After referred and applying online, I got a phone interview with HR. She said they need another to make decision on who will get 2nd interview because they still need to interview other candidates. She was very friendly and explained about the role really detail. Question about why do you choose this job then I talked about how much I love customer service while I was working at restaurants. That may help.

They're. Not interested in hiring you if you have any aspirations to move up in the company. The interview was a waste of time. If you plan on being a customer service rep the rest of your career you'll have a chance.

I applied online – interviewed at CIBC (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in June 2015.
The telephone interview was not as friendly as I expected. It was like an interrogation and made me feel guilty for applying. I was nervous as it was my first interview. No additional questions, no empathy at all. Maybe I had a bad luck with the HR person.

I applied through college or university. The process took 5 days – interviewed at CIBC (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in June 2015.
I applied this position via our school's co-op system. The staffs from CIBC will contact you if you pass the resume screening. It's a telephone interview made of almost all technical questions. More specifically, all about object-oriented programming like inheritance, polymorphism. If you ever took 1000 level programming courses, you must be able to answer them all. The duration is about 20 minutes.
- What is inheritance? 1 Answer

I applied online. The process took 5 days – interviewed at CIBC (Calgary, AB (Canada)) in May 2015.
So far I have been only through the telephone interview. HR was very easygoing and polite. At first she asked some questions about my availability for work and training, then told me about the job itself. Then she asked some questions based on my resume (where and when I had worked) and found out some details about my previous job responsibilities. There also came a number of behavioral questions. The interview lasted for 25 minutes.

I applied online. The process took 3+ months – interviewed at CIBC (Brampton, ON (Canada)) in May 2015.
I applied numerous times over the course of a few months. I finally got an email from a recruiter to schedule a phone interview. That took place three days later and was pretty well handled. It was meant to last 20-30 minutes but lasted 42 minutes, which apparently is a good thing. I used Google to prep for possible questions in a phone interview for that role and that helped a lot. She ended up asking fewer questions than I expected and the easiest of all possible questions. Was told she was giving her recommendation and will actively pursue me getting a face to face interview.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week – interviewed at CIBC (Mississauga, ON (Canada)) in May 2015.
The branch manager focused on sales and service questions. He is very kind and following the interview guide. Since the other branch manager is sick, so he needs to write down my response.
