    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at CIBC (Toronto, ON (Canada)).

    Interview

    Telephone interview. First is the confirmation of the job content (what might be somewhat different then you would expect), and then they asked the most common question"tell me about yourself" and general questions about your experiences. Two scenario questions about your interpersonal skills, which were easy to answer if you had related experiences. No technical test part.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at CIBC (Toronto, ON (Canada)).

    Interview

    Referred by friend, submitted resume, had in-person interview with board of managers, had phone interview, received job offer by phone. Then went through extensive domestic and international screenings and background checks which were arranged by an assigned HR rep. After reviewing the offer letter I requested a higher salary since it had not been mentioned until this point in the process. CIBC was firm on its monetary figure and did not budge.

    Advisory Applications Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mississauga, ON (Canada)

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at CIBC (Mississauga, ON (Canada)) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and was invited to 1:1 in-person interview with Hiring Manager within a week.

    Manager seemed very casual and asked me to sit and tell me about myself without any greetings. I described my current and previous work experiences, technical skills and education. I tried to relate them with job description but manager reacted negatively to most of them and kept saying "Oh so you don't have this skill/experience?"

    I asked questions about what technologies and skills would be used the most for this position since about a two dozen of them were listed in the job description. After several minutes of discussion, manager responded that most of the applications listed in the job descriptions are not being used currently and may not be used in the future. I was shocked when he told me that I was the first candidate being interviewed and that I will be invited for 2nd round of interviews only if other candidates, who he claimed had 3-5 years' more experience than me, do extremely bad in their respective interviews.

    Manager asked me about my salary expectations and I provided a range in line with industry standards. He told me that the expectation is quite high and argued that more experienced individuals are paid less than that. He started bargaining and offered me a range that was less than my current salary. I didn't bother negotiating as I had already lost interest in the position.

    This was by far the worst interview I have attended in my career. I understand that not all managers are same but the interview left a very bad impression of working culture at CIBC on me. I was surprised that a manager working for such a reputed bank can behave like this. CIBC should consider providing training and guidance to their managers who are responsible for conducting interviews.
