    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at BMO Financial Group in January 2015.

    Interview

    Had a couple of really good interviews with really good feedback with different people in the organization and got scheduled for a final conversation with the head of the department. Great news!

    The day before that last interview I got an email from the recruiting team asking if I was able to reschedule and I said that it would be very difficult given my schedule but that Fridays usually work best because those are the days I am usually in Chicago. A day later they reply saying that if I preferred to have phone call at 830am on Friday instead of an in-person meeting and I agreed. I never heard back from the recruiter confirming whether or not I was having a phone call for that last interview and to my surprise my cellphone rang a few minutes after 830am. I hesitated for a little bit because I barely respond to phone calls from number I don't recognize but I thought "this" could actually be "that" call. And it was!. No biggie.

    The call went well but towards the end of it I started getting questions around a very specific skill that, and I quote, was "key to get hired for this position" but surprisingly was nowhere to be found in the job description (3 page-MS Word document) that I got from the recruiting team and that I was never asked before through out the entire process, neither the recruiting team nor the people I interviewed with.

    How comes that such a key skill was not mentioned before?
