    Credit Counsellor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    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.

    Business Analyst Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at CIBC (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter for this role and selected by the hiring manager for an interview.

    The recruiter confirmed the interview process to be a single phone or in-person interview with hiring manager. I was then confirmed for a phone interview with the 'hiring manager.'

    Phone Interview with the hiring manager:
    I was actually contacted by CIBC HR who was conducting mass pre-screen interviews and not the hiring manager. There was no job description given for this role either.

    Not impressed.

    Financial Services Representative Interview

    Negative Experience
    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.

    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

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at CIBC (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in January 2017.

    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.

Only place I have worked in which management actively encourages employees to try out different jobs and work in different departments. Very smart people who are, naturally, competitive. But that competitiveness doesn't get in the way of what has become a close-knit family. Comes from classic tech/advertising start-up roots and still maintains much of that feel within its offices” – Full Review
