    Accounts Payable Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Canaccord (New York, NY) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Met the Controller, she was very nice and polite. But when she walked into the conference room very casual with a glass of water in her hand. it look to me like she wasn't prepared to interview anyone for a job position. I was asked the normal questions . Tell me about yourself, what is your current role at your present job, why are you looking to leave you current job..... I was asked to go back for a second interview.Met the HR person - very lovely person, she gave me a full description of the job and explain what will be my roll if I was chosen for the job opening. I was there over an hour waiting to meet with the CFO. Finally met with the CFO - very nice person, my impression of him was a very knowledgeable and straightforward. He gave me full details of the company and how it operates. I had a very good feeling about this. sadly it didn't work out for me.

    Investment Banking Summer Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Canaccord.

    Interview

    Applied through university career services. Had two 25 minute one-on-on interviews, one with an analyst/associate and one with a vp. Mostly a typical investment banking interview:

    Why investment banking? Why Canaccord (lol)? They also asked the "whats your weakness" one, which isn't really typical for ib. I heard they also ask for a stock pitch.

    Interview Questions

    • "Walk me through the 3 financial statements" caught me off guard. Also, like with any ib interview, understand the EV/EBITDA and Equity/Net Income relationship.   Answer Question

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Canaccord (Vancouver, BC (Canada)) in December 2014.

    Interview

    I applied for the position and a day later I got a call asking me to come in for an interview. I did the first interview and it was more of a meeting. They mainly just asked about my experience and the sort of things I've done in regards to marketing and prospecting. They told me about the position and were super friendly as well. They told me that they were still interviewing other candidates and would be in touch with me to let me know the outcome in about a week and a half. I received an email from them about a week later requesting a second meeting and we arranged it for the next day. I went in and met with a senior manager and had a quick conversation with him about my skills and after that conversation, I was offered the position. It was a fairly quick process and not that difficult but they were super friendly and easy to chat with.

    Negotiation

    There wasn't really any negotiations, they asked what sort of things I was offered at my current position and either matched or went beyond that.

    Summer Intern Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Canaccord (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in January 2013.

    Interview

    The interviewers were very unfriendly, have not smiled even at once during the interview. Asked very difficult technical questions, especially regarding LBO models. Although it is well known that investment bankers have huge conflicts of interest, most of them try to conceal that. In Canaccord Genuity's case though, they directly asked questions on how to tweak models.

    Interview Questions

    • What assumptions one needs to tweak to reach a higher IRR in the LBO model?   Answer Question
