    I applied online – interviewed at CIBC.

    Interview

    First was a personality test sent by email one day after submitting my CV.
    One day later, I received a call. That was the first part of the interview. About 30 minutes. In English and French, after which they asked me to meet with the manager the next day.
    Finally, the 1 to 1 interview was really cool. The manager was smiling and kind. She went out and called me. I had to make her choose the right financial product.

    Interview

    Applied online with Cover Letter, CV and Transcript. Received phone call within one week to schedule a phone interview for the next day. The phone interview was a business case/behavioral question that lasted 30 minutes. Received notification by phone the next day that the second round interview would be the following day. This interview was in-person and consisted of two separate hour-long interviews - half behavioral, half business case - and was followed by a cocktail.
