    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at CIBC in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    There were three phone interviews and I am going to do the final one in person tomorrow. The first phone interview was a simple check about my education and employment background. What is your availability etc. The second phone call was pretty much the same question but with further deep, like why you left your last company, what is your salary expatation etc. As a bilingual post, I also got a third phone interview which is extremely brief. The third one was in French and the question was what was your past experience in office administrative work. I also got an email of translation test about French writing level. This was ended last Friday February 13th.
    Tuesday of the following week I got the in-person interview request which is going to be tomorrow. Now preparing the last.

    Technical Analyst - Co-Op Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    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.

    Technical Systems Analyst Co-op Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    Anonymous Employee in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at CIBC in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied through my college/ university website. Got an interview call after a week. It lasted for 30 mins. Interviewed asked me 3 questions on projects I worked on in the past and few resume questions. We talked about his vacation and what this job is related to and what sort of things cibc is looking for. Its been more than a week but I haven't heard back from them yet. Hopefully, they will reply me soon. I would recommend to apply and see you fit in the company. As they don't expect you to know everything, even if you don't have technical don't worry. They don't care if you know or not

    Contact Centre Representative - Investor's Edge Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    Anonymous Employee in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at CIBC.

    Interview Details

    Initially received a phone call that CIBC was interested in doing a phone interview with me. We scheduled for a few days later. The initial interview was mostly behavioural questions but they also asked what I thought of my current job (I particularly remember them asking "what does your current employer do wrong that makes you want to leave" to which I had to point out that it was simply that CIBC was a more interesting opportunity). It was pretty simple and somewhat casual, and the interviewer seemed happy with me and said she'd pass me on to the second interview for which I would be called to schedule a time.

    It was a few days later I got a call from someone directly at the call centre who asked when I could do the in-person interview. We scheduled for later that week. There were two interviews; one who had recently called, and one other. Both were fairly nice, but ran late on some other business before seeing me for an interview. They read questions from a form similar to what the phone interviewer asked me, and it was mostly simple. The issues came when they asked about my specific knowledge on investment products (which I have little of), and I could tell they seemed disappointed there. At the end they did not even ask for my reference list; generally a bad sign. They called the next week to tell me they chose someone else who had more knowledge of investment products.

    Interview Questions
    • Specifically questions on what a mutual fund is, and other investment-product questions.   Answer Question
