    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.

    Interview

    Took about 6 days to get interview. Very friendly and questions are usually tailored to what you mentioned on your resume. It is imperative that you keep up with the news the ensure you know what to talk about. If you have been keeping up with the news already, this is very helpful. Have a basic understanding of evaluations of stocks and companies. There are 2 rounds, therefore the 1st round tends to be less technical.
