I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at Scotiabank (New York, NY) in May 2014.
The managers were engaging in terms of having a conversation with me about where I'm headed in my career. They were new to the firm and feeling out the landscape for themselves as well but very open individuals in terms of discussing what issues they have and how I may be part of the solution.

I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Scotiabank.
I went to their on campus hiring event and applied online through our university website. I got an interview from the human resource. The first round was with human resource, and the second round was with two managers from related groups. Both the interviewers were very friendly and professional. Typical questions related to risk management and finance. It didn't take very long. I think it took us 30 to 40 minutes.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Scotiabank (Boston, MA) in February 2014.
I thought interview went well but I found two weeks later I wash't selected. It really wasn't to bad. Many of the questions were general. MD who interviewed me did ask some technical questions about the market and wanted to see if I had a basic understanding of CAPM...
- 1st round = A lot of behavioral..A couple of market based questions but nothing very difficult. Answer Question

I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Scotiabank (New York, NY) in January 2010.
I applied through my school's career center and got a phone call 2 weeks later and was scheduled for a phone interview with one of the analysts. The analyst was nice and asked a few technical questions over the phone. After given a short summary of the bank's history I was asked to pick a time for the following week to come in for an interview. On the interview day I met with the analyst (briefly), an associate director and one co-head (the other person was too busy to come interview me) of the team. There were no technical questions, although the co-head did give me a case study and asked for solutions to the problem. The people are very nice and laid back. They weren't there to give anyone a hard time and didn't pull anything nasty during the interview. The USA branch still seems quite small and, by hearing bits and pieces from them, it seems like there's a lot of turnovers and staff rotating. The only thing that soured the process is that I never heard back from them. I would have expected some decency to let the candidate know that the position was filled, but I never got any responses to follow ups.

Typical behavioral and scenario based questions - first interview has more "tell me about a time when..." whereas second interview is more "how would you deal in this situation?" Questions are straightforward if you use common sense. The interview was of average difficulty. I would rate the process as a positive experience overall.

I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Scotiabank (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in July 2015.
I applied for the Internal Audit Co-op and I had an interview with the director over the phone. The interview was fairly easy and basically went through my resume for the most part. Talked a little bit of current news, mainly the Greek debt crisis
