    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Scotiabank (Oakville, ON (Canada)) in November 2012.

    Interview

    3 rounds of interview. The first round was telephonic one with detailed resume screening and general questions like why Scotiabank ? strength and weakness ? what do you know about the job profile ? targets achieved in previous job ? Second round was also a telephonic interview with 15 behavioral questions. you can get the list of questions from google. HR pays attention on your confidence and way of speaking. After the second round she will instantly book you for the third round. Third round was most crucial with a panel of 5 branch managers. This round includes two group activities, one individual activity and two rounds of panel interview. These all rounds includes regular questions and nothing unexpected.

    Interview Questions

    • Most difficult part is the interview result which is mostly unexpected :( the focus during the third round is too much on the behavior of the interviewee and please pay attention to your listening, team playing, relationship building and communication skill. make all possible attempt during each and every phase of third round to emphasis on the said qualities.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Scotiabank (Brampton, ON (Canada)) in May 2012.

    Interview

    Way too long. It took me nine weeks from application to offer. First you must apply online, I strongly recommend getting your csc and cph beforehand. They give you a pre screening interview, from there they will give you an online questionnaire. In total the phone interview will last an hour and a half. Then you will have to do an online background check. From there you will have to do a panel interview and from there you will have to wait up to 10 business days to hear back from them.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    There is no negotiating.
