    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at CIBC Mellon (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I was recruited by a recruiter so i got to skip the telephone screening interview and went straight to the in person interview. i had a panel of 2, both managers. Its a very straight forward interview. I was asked both behavioural questions and technical questions. You have to know the accounting fundamentals (nav, stock spilts, mutual funds) and excel skills (macro, pivot tables, v lookup) and describe them.

    Average Interview

    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
