    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at CIBC Mellon in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    phone interview, hr interview, then interview with supervisor. very laid back and smooth. depends on who is interviewing you, but seems like they are more interested in personable hard workers.

    HR interview - basic interview, what are your strength/weakness, situational questions. where do you see yourself in 5 years.

    supervisor interview - same as hr interview, but also financial knowledge questions. what is a mutual fund, how do you value it. etc

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at CIBC Mellon in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    The whole process was very fast. There was an initial phone interview with a HR rep who just ask basic questions about you and your resume, they will tell you that they are going forwarding your resume to the hiring manager and get back to you.

    The interview itself contained technical and behavioral questions. The questions were normal interview questions that you would expect and the technical aspects were pretty easy if you have a background in business.
