    Credit Card Risk Insights Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Interview Details

    Hiring Manager directly sent me email asking me go to interview, after the first round, there would be second round with VP. And the last round would meet HR people. In the interview, I was told it's a new team, so the benefit is there's enough opportunity to grow. And as a new team, it's not a typical risk management group, but more like a cross functional team to coordinate related teams.

    Interview Questions
    • There was one question out of my expectation, how to expand the card portfolio. It's more like a marketing or product management question.   Answer Question

    Technical Analyst - Co-Op Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at CIBC.

    Interview Details

    I applied online through my university for the technology recruitment program. I had to fill out a form rating some of my technical skills. Then they pass on your resume to a team that fits your skills/experience. I got a phone call from HR asking a few simple questions and arranging an interview with the manager. I had the option of a phone interview or in person. I opted for the phone interview. I think the process will differ depending which team you are being interviewed by. In the phone interview they asked standard questions. I didn't think I did very well but shortly after I was called back with an offer.

    Interview Questions
    • They mostly just asked standard questions about how I deal with multitasking, working in a team, dealing with customers   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I didn't negotiate initially, as a co-op student it paid better than other jobs. I returned later for another co-op term and was able to negotiate a bit in terms of compensation and hours, but it really depends on your manager.
