    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at BMO Financial Group (Chicago, IL) in December 2013.

    Interview

    Very quick but I had an excellent insider recommendation that carried immense clout. As such, the process was definitely expedited. Phone, then in-person committee interview, offer within a day, background check. I was satisfied with the process. Very satisfied in fact. Extremely satisfied. Elatedly satisfied. You could say I was satisfied in less than 50 words but I'm required to pad my response for the filter.
