    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at BMO Financial Group (Chicago, IL) in October 2017.

    Interview

    The process is typical, phone screen, then face to face meeting. The HR rep was very nice, but the amount of time between responses was excessively long. I am assuming I did not get the job, as I never heard back from them. I found that to be a a bit odd, but apparently this is the new hiring model for companies. The position is still listed, so I cannot say with certainty that it has actually been filled.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at BMO Financial Group (Round Lake, IL) in April 2017.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview and was scheduled for a 1:1 interview right afterwards. I went to the 1:1 interview where I met a bilingual supervisor and a blonde supervisor. They asked if there was any time in the next 3 month that I would have to be out and I told them that I was expecting so I would have to take some time off. And wow!! Did I get the most unprofessional reaction from the blonde woman. She legit told me that I would not get hired because I was pregnant!!! The nerve of this woman. I understand that it’s a bit inconvenient for the company and I understood that I would not get paid for my time off but to flat out say no because I was pregnant is unheard of and I think it’s also against the law.
