There were two rounds for me, first round with HR second round with the team lead. Be prepared for definitions like "NAV", what does fund accounting do in general. No hard or tricky questions overall, it took almost an hour in total.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at CIBC Mellon.

    Interview

    It was a very straight forward interview. They asked me the typical standard behavioral questions and then transitioned into the technical skills that you possess. Know your accounting fundamentals (journal entries on dividends, prepaid expenses etc), know excel (VLookup, pivot tables, macros), and know your mutual funds (NAV, stock split etc).

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about yourself, why should we hire you, weakness, technical questions on accounting, excel and mutual funds   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at CIBC Mellon (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Referred by a networking event. Interviews were held on site during the networking event. There were 2 interviewers. It seems like they have never read your resume before, ask a lot of questions while they were reading the resume. The interview was around 15-20 minutes long because there are a lot of interviewees.

    Interview Questions

    • If there are multiple tasks due today, let's say 6 p.m. and you don't really have enough time. How will you handle this situation?/What are you going to do next?   Answer Question

    I got interviewed on campus. HR told me during interview that they would call back within the week whether I received an offer or not, but they never did. This interview was for future opportunities and current opportunities. HR never left me their contact information to follow up. I recommend you ask for contact information before you leave the interview.
