Financial Service Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at BMO Financial Group in April 2016.

Interview

The interview process went very quickly. I received a phone call the first Monday of my application timeline and proceeded with the phone screen. I was contacted later that day by the next recruiter to set up a video interview for later in the week. By the next Tuesday I was presented with a written offer.
Google the S.T.A.R principle for interview questions to systematically answer the recruiter's questions. Using the S.T.A.R principle efficiently answers the recruiters questions in an adequate time frame. This will help if you tend to ramble or give irrelevant information in your answer due to nerves.

Interview Questions

  • Tell me about yourself.
    Do you have any past sales or financial experience?
    Where did you hear about this job?
    What are 3 skills you can bring to this role?
    What importance do you think proactivity plays in this role? (hint: stating proactivity as one of your skills pays off)
    Past sales experience questions some regarding meeting sales targets.
    Situation questions based on events that could happen if you were to be the successful candidate, ie: after 3 months in the role a client comes in to open a savings account... what indicators would you look for to improve the client's experience with BMO... what other products might you recommend during the meeting.
    Based on your answers, the recruiter might ask follow up questions. The process is very interactive and although there are formality questions the recruiter will ask, there is availability to elaborate on certain topics the recruiter may have found interesting.   Answer Question
