    Interview Details

    Contacted the hiring manager directly, then she emailed me for a interview at its office. He informed me that it will be an group interview and did not mention anything else. The group interveiw starts as everyone introduce themselves. And then the hiring staffs are introducing the program that is currently on-going at the office and what they expect us to do. Then they throw some question and ask us to discuss as a group.

    I've got an employee referral. A few days later, I received an email from the assistant branch manager asking an interview. The manager looked pretty friendly and asked me some questions regarding my previous experience. The interview went very well, and It took half an hour. At the end, he said if some teams need an associate, he would contact me immediately. He said my personality is good for this job, and may have a big chance. Also, he suggested me to prepare some specific stuff for the next interview. I'm still waiting.

    Associate to Investment Advisor Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at RBC Dominion Securities in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    Met with branch administrator, it became clear she was meeting with me to get a sense of what type of personality I was and to let me know about some of the personalities the IA's have. It was a positive experience. She advised me she works hard to put the right personalities together and would be in touch when she found a team that she felt I would be a good fit for. About a month later I received a phone call from her and she said she has two teams that she would like me to meet with.
    First team asked standard questions: as in where do I see myself in 5 years. What are my career aspirations. Why did I leave my last role, what did I like about it etc.
    Second team, one of the members asked me three questions that she is not allowed to ask me. I answered the first two: How old am I and if I was married, without saying she can't ask it but I did ask her why she wanted to know. She basically said, she wants to make sure the encumbent is going to stick around and not leave in a year (not sure what marriage and age have to do with this) and then she asked me: If I am planning to have children! I was gob-smacked and before I knew what I was doing I said "you can't ask me that", and she said she doesn't care as she doesn't work in HR so she won't get in to trouble.
    I answered her honestly. Didn't get the job - was advised by the branch administrator that I was unsuccessful. When I asked the branch administrator if she had any feedback as to why, she didn't... so I will never know if it was because I answered these questions honestly or it was just that I am not the right fit for job.
