    Team Leader Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7+ weeks. I interviewed at MD Financial Management (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in October 2017.

    Interview

    I couldn't make the scheduled in-person interview (manager came to town from another city) so had a conference call with the hiring manager and one staff member. Both were professional. HR was efficient and called when promised. Unfortunately, HR also kept me hanging for two weeks with excuses such as "We're researching compensation rates" and "We're looking at the department structure," before informing me I would not be moving forward due to not having a financial background - which was clearly evident in my resume. If you're not interested and still "candidate shopping," be transparent about it rather than dragging the process out.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at MD Financial Management (Ottawa, ON (Canada)) in February 2014.

    Interview

    CV and cover sent directly to hiring manager. Initial 30 minute phone interview. Followed by in person interview with hiring manager one week later. One-on-one interview at the head office. Followed by a skills test sent by email with a submission deadline of four days.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at MD Financial Management (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in September 2018.

    Interview

    I interviews twice with Carol located in Ottawa. She was very kind and easy to get along with. She made the process that can be a little challenging to be very natural. I then met with Sharon who shared the same qualities and continued to make the onboarding process enjoyable. They worked to provide the best offer they could and were very communicative throughout the entire process. Very impressive! I would recommend anyone looking and qualified to look into MD as an option.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at MD Financial Management (Ottawa, ON (Canada)) in January 2016.

    Interview

    I went through a local recruiter. Once we discussed the opportunity, they then sent my resume to their client (MDF) and an interview was set up. I then met with 2 of their QA team leads to discuss the opportunity and my previous experience. Once satisfied and upon reflection (I guess), they then offered me the (contract) position a week or two later.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked me about my previous work experience. None of it was financial, so they wanted to know why I was interested in the financial industry.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation phase.

    You submit resume on-line. In a week or so, if you are selected, you will receive notification from HR about being a prospective candidate and eventually have scheduled time for a phone interview. The telephone interview can last an hour. If you pass the phone interview, the HR rep will forward you a financial planning questions, that need to be answered. It's basically case studies like you would see in a financial planning exam. You will then submit the completed questionnaire back to them. If you pass this test, you will then get to meet with the Vice President of a selected Region/City. Basically a local manager of the region. Once you pass that test, they will require you to go through a criminal record check on-line, etc., and they will check to see if everything pans out. You then receive an offer.

    Interview Questions

    • Several case studies - written/point form case studies - takes usually an hour or two to complete.   Answer Question
