    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Scotiabank (Montreal, QC (Canada)) in February 2016.

    Interview

    The interview went really well and asked me questions that which I prepared from the questions posted on their website. Very basic interview questions. But then she began asking me questions in French which made me struggle. Must be bilingual and not just know a little bit of French.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Scotiabank.

    Interview

    Process did not take very long to do, met with branch manager and went over situational questions. From the date of the interview to first day on training was about 1-2 weeks. Very relaxed environment, very nice and easy going. Depending on the area I would recommend asking for more $$ just based on the amount of work that is required, most days working overtime without pay just to get things done in the timeframe expected. Very fast pace environment.
