    Associate Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at BMO Harris Bank (Chicago, IL) in November 2017.

    Interview

    There was an initial phone screen followed by 4 different 30 minute interviews at the Chicago office. The interviews were with a first year analyst, a mid level manager, a technology manager, and a higher level manager with a tech background. All four interviews were mostly behavioral, with the exception of the manager with the tech background choosing random areas of expertise on your resume and asking questions. After completing my interview the recruiter said that I would hear back from them within a week about their decisions but I was never contacted again despite a direct email that I sent to the recruiter trying to get some information.

    Senior Project Manager Contract Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Naperville, IL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at BMO Harris Bank (Naperville, IL) in August 2017.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter, did a video interview, and then an in person interview. During the in person interview, there were two interviewers. They were rather rude. One kept making snarky remarks about my client's budget. The other ridiculed me for having a 6 month contract, despite it being completed successfully per client requirements. Some projects just aren't year long projects. Seriously, if me having a 6 month project bothered you so much, why did you bring me in for an interview? It's on the resume! I'm a senior Project Manager with excellent references. I've been brought back by two of my banking clients during my career and could go back again!

    Another thing that bothered me was I never even got a chance to introduce myself and talk about my background. I barely got to say hello! They started with a case study and then started attacking my background. They missed a good candidate because of their hostile approach.
