Fund Accountant Interview

Fund Accountant
Toronto, ON (Canada)

I applied online and 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.

Interview Question – Rate your excel skills on a scale from 1-10.   Answer Question
