    Interview

    Although there were not any current position available I sent my resume to Head Office anyway. I had a phone interview and was set up with a face to face interview with the RVP within 2 days. The RVP touched base every 2 weeks to let me know that I had not been forgotten. Once a position came available I was contacted to go to a branch for an interview. The whole process took 4 months.

    Receptionist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Surrey, BC (Canada)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Canadian Western Bank (Surrey, BC (Canada)) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Interview was so informal. The hiring manager was not even dressed appropriately. I did not even think she's a. Manager. The other manager in the room said she has other stuffs to do so just move on with their prepared 10 questions on paper and she'll come back. Interview questions are so basic and dumb. After that we shook hands and on the way out the manager asks me how much salary I wanted( so informal and I find odd) said she'll call then she called again later that afternoon asked for my basic info and best of all my credit score to be pulled. I went in even I know my credit score was not great, I knew I'm capable of the job. From there you'll be judged cuz u have a low credit score. That's sad for a company to base employment on a score when you are more capable of the job and qualified. Waste of time. I'm now hired for a better position and on my way to have a good credit score. No wonder they never go that far.

    Interview Questions

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Canadian Western Bank (Calgary, AB (Canada)) in January 2014.

    Interview

    Quick, ambiguous, and you could sense they needed people very badly. In hindsight it was obvious that there was management insecurity which became more of an issue later. Don't be nervous, despite the slow economy no one is available to be hired.
