    Investment Banking Summer Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at BMO Capital Markets (Chicago, IL) in October 2017.

    Interview

    This was an extremely unprofessional and unethical process. I come from a university that is considered "non-target" at BMO even though they gave three offers out to students at my university last year and we place 30+ students in banking every year. This year they invited 2 of us to superdays, kept postponing it, and a VP who is an alum from my university told me what was really happening. I was being placed on hold and they were planning on just keeping me on my feet postponing my pending superday in hopes that I would just give up. I withdrew my application and told them about how unprofessional and unethical the process had been

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at BMO Capital Markets.

    Interview

    I am only at the first round interview and it was a phone call interview. I applied through school career website and got invitation 2 days before the interview. I think there were half behavioural and half technical questions. I did not expect the interviewers will ask so many accounting stuffs and I could not remember so many accounting stuffs from last semester. So as a non business school student, I feel a little bit overwhelming .

    I had an on-campus interview after applying on my school's hiring website. It was mostly conversational and comfortable and I explained that I have taken more accounting than finance classes so for my two technical questions, he asked me a more accounting related question and then a question about the stock market overall.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at BMO Capital Markets (New York, NY) in August 2017.

    Interview

    This process was the best IB interview I have ever had. My interviewer had a conversational approach and tried to get to know me as a person. There was not a single technical question asked. All I did was apply on my careers website through my university and I was scheduled for a first and second round. In each, they have been super nice and no technical questions at all!

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at BMO Capital Markets (Notre Dame, IN) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Interviewer was very nice and clearly just trying to get to know you as a person. Approached it as a conversation, rather than a test. One thing I didn't like was that I was asked in detail every other bank I was talking to. Feel like I incriminated myself by being honest. Seemed like interviewer checked out when I mentioned a couple of BBs.
