    The whole interview took an hour, and it is between the senior manger and me. The interview primary focus on the technical side of the job. Since the position focus on how to segment the existing customer and whether approval the mortgage or not, hence the interview don't have too much behaviour questions.

    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Scotiabank in June 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process involved a face-to-face interview and then followup from human resources. I was surprised how quickly the interview went by. Not even 15 minutes. The worst part was dealing with HR and the company that does verifications for them. Very unorganized and unprofessional I found. I ended up declining the offer because of the terrible experiences I had just trying to get the job.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    The process of which they do background checks is flawed. I had multiple emails from the company that does the checks. The HR department seemed very unorganized. (I had multiple phone calls and emails from them) The entire process was annoying to be honest.
