    Application

    The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at CIBC.

    Interview

    Hiring process was long (over a month before I heard). Interview questions were technical and based on previous experience. More questions about my ability to perform in the role than my ability to fit in the culture. All fair questions. Interviewer was engaging and transparent about the team and role.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at CIBC (Toronto, ON (Canada)).

    Interview

    The phone interview was pretty generic. Some basic and behavior questions. Accent on a previous customer service experience. After that, face to face interview with a hiring manager that lasted about 20-30 min with mostly behavior questions and more in depth understanding of the role. The location is one of the head offices north of the city. Very close to the subway and also available parking. Very good compensation package with vacation and benefits. The next day after the interview got a call from HR with a job offer that I accepted.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at CIBC in February 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online then received a call from their HR to schedule a phone interview. Did the interview and it was quite laid back and casual. Was told the second phase of interviews would take place a week or two later and that I would hear back from them if considered. 2 Weeks later I got another call and was told they had not started the second phase and were going to do another set of phone interviews to "touch base" with candidates, questions were exactly the same.

    Financial Services Representative Interview

    Average Interview

    Interview

    First, the talent acquisition representative contacted me from Ottawa. She seemed very friendly and we had a brief conversation about my experiences and etc. She passed my profile to HR for the next interview. I had a phone interview with her, however she didn't get back to me with any feedback. At the same time branch manager was interested in appointing an interview with me. He left a voicemail, however when I called him back and left a voicemail he didn't get back to me. No reply to the email either. Very disappointed. They have made a negative impression. At least there should be some respect. Don't think will be working for CIBC or refer anyone there.

    Negotiation

    A good advice is maintain the expectation low during the process.. show yourself interest in the bank... not only in the salary. Tons of benefits and good people to work. Be honest about your financial goals
