    Summer Intern Interview

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

    I applied through college or university. The process took a day - interviewed at Canaccord in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    The interviewers were very unfriendly, have not smiled even at once during the interview. Asked very difficult technical questions, especially regarding LBO models. Although it is well known that investment bankers have huge conflicts of interest, most of them try to conceal that. In Canaccord Genuity's case though, they directly asked questions on how to tweak models.
