    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at CIBC Mellon.

    Interview

    HR contacts you for a short phone interview. Usually it is to discuss about the opportunity and what it entails. HR is quite nice over the phone but curt. Then there is one in person interview with senior managers who ask fairly simple questions like "how do you deal with the same type of work every day" and "how do you deal with conflicts"

    Client Relationship Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at CIBC Mellon (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Upon arriving, the receptionist was very nice, although i did have to wait for a while for my interviewer to approach me. I don't really like that - as i believe both parties should be present at the required time.
    The interview was pretty brief, two mangers interviewed me from the department. Only one manger asked the questions, the other manger just watched me answer the questions - i guess he was trying to be intimidating or something. Otherwise a very simple and quick interview.

    They informed me i will hear back in about 2 weeks.

Its a very straight forward interview. I was asked both behavioural questions and technical questions.
