    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Scotiabank (New York, NY) in February 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was two rounds, with a Skype interview on campus for the first round. Questions were fairly straightforward, with a mix of behavioral and technical questions. The second round was at the company headquarters in New York. Scotia bank offered to reimburse me for the second round, but I contacted the recruiter several times and it's been over a year and I still have yet to get any reimbursement for my flight and hotel stay. Poor communication and lack of professionalism on HR's part.

    Interview

    I went to their on campus hiring event and applied online through our university website. I got an interview from the human resource. The first round was with human resource, and the second round was with two managers from related groups. Both the interviewers were very friendly and professional. Typical questions related to risk management and finance. It didn't take very long. I think it took us 30 to 40 minutes.
