    Human Resources Did Not Know Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Scotiabank (New York, NY) in March 2012.

    Interview

    It was a bit unorganized, the interviewer was unprepared to meet me. I had to meet with 4 individuals, therefore the interviewing process was lengthy. It is good to read the corporations background and history.

    Interview Questions

    • What do you know about the position? Someone of trust referred me to Scotiabank.   1 Answer

    Investment Banking Analyst Interview

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

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Scotiabank (New York, NY) in January 2010.

    Interview

    I applied through my school's career center and got a phone call 2 weeks later and was scheduled for a phone interview with one of the analysts. The analyst was nice and asked a few technical questions over the phone. After given a short summary of the bank's history I was asked to pick a time for the following week to come in for an interview.
    On the interview day I met with the analyst (briefly), an associate director and one co-head (the other person was too busy to come interview me) of the team.
    There were no technical questions, although the co-head did give me a case study and asked for solutions to the problem.
    The people are very nice and laid back. They weren't there to give anyone a hard time and didn't pull anything nasty during the interview. The USA branch still seems quite small and, by hearing bits and pieces from them, it seems like there's a lot of turnovers and staff rotating.

    The only thing that soured the process is that I never heard back from them. I would have expected some decency to let the candidate know that the position was filled, but I never got any responses to follow ups.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Scotiabank (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in November 2017.

    Interview

    There was an invite only meet and greet session one day, then a few weeks later there was a "superday." Superday involved numerous group activities where they were really trying to see how you prioritized things, what your values were, and how you worked with others. The final round was a 3 on 1 one hour interview. Overall a very enjoyable experience, and the recruiters were fantastic in guiding us through the process.
