    Customer Service Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Ontario, CA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Banque Nationale du Canada/National Bank of Canada (Ontario, CA) in December 2014.

    Interview

    Got a phone interview
    Then a one-on-one interview
    Then a one-on-one with the branch manager.

    The interviews were very easy but the last interview with the branch manager was something else... He was SO incredibly rude, did not make me feel comfortable AT ALL and after interviewing me, he said he was looking for someone who knows how to build client relations and since ive only worked in big companies he didnt think i could get the job done. I got a call a few days later asking me to come in to sign a job offer and i refused it. If this branch didnt want me in the first place, i wasnt about to accept the positon. Maybe it was my single experience but national bank needs to train their employees on how to give interviews. The people at the branch were also very rude to me, i felt unwelcomed. Glad i dodged a bullet! Never settle for a job, keep searching til you find the right one for yourself where you are treated with respect :)

    Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Montreal, QC (Canada)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Banque Nationale du Canada/National Bank of Canada (Montreal, QC (Canada)) in December 2012.

    Interview

    So the hiring manager calls me, we setup an interview date. Come interview day, the meeting goes really well and the manager gives me positive feedback.

    Then after many unreturned phone calls and emails, the trail goes cold. One week passes, then two, then three. What is up National Bank ??

    I'm very disappointed to say the least. Speaking with friends that work at National Bank, not answering the phone and not returning repeated contacts appears to be standard operating procedure for letting a candidate know they are not accepted.

    Obviously, I would not apply to work at National Bank again.

    Interview Questions

    • There weren't any particularly difficult questions, it was a standard difficulty interview.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Banque Nationale du Canada/National Bank of Canada (Montreal, QC (Canada)) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Phone interview (very general), then in person (more precise, but still pretty casual). The in person interview was very easy as they seemed to have already "approved" me after the phone interview. They only wanted to check if I was available to start soon and if I would be a good fit for the team.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Banque Nationale du Canada/National Bank of Canada (Montreal, QC (Canada)) in September 2016.

    Interview

    The first twenty minutes was spent reviewing my resume. After that the interviewer had a series of questions about how I would handle various scenarios -- technical issues, collaboration issues, and crisis and problems. There was an opportunity to ask questions about the bank. There were three questions for me about the bank just to check if I had done any research about the institution.
