    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Scotiabank (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in February 2014.

    Interview

    The hiring process was quite typical. Very basic behavioural and situational questions, followed by an in-person meeting with the Hiring Manager.The hiring manager just wanted to know more about my experience and thoughts on the projects at hand. He didn't follow a traditional script. I thought the interview was quite easy, but at the same time, I obviously didn't know what to expect since I had prepared for a traditional interview and was faced with an open discussion.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Scotiabank (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in October 2011.

    Interview

    I had a telephonic interview with the HR. Then there was an interview with the Director and a VP for about an hour. Then the process took a turn in the third round when there was a panel of 5 SVPs and a director who interviewed me for 45 Minutes. and a rotating interview with 3 Senior managers continued outside the panel room where the rest of the 3 candidates were being interviewed. The interview with the 3 Sr. Managers were for an hour each and they probed and tested every little detail on the resume and then cross verified with the others. But at no point did it feel uncomfortable as they were very nice. After I cleared this round, I had another 1:1 with their Senior Most SVP where she wanted to make sure that I would stay around with the bank and not leave after an year or so.

    Interview Questions

    • What do you think about the Euro crisis and how do you think it will impact the world? What should be the steps the bank should take to mitigate the risk?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I negotiated upwards to 25% more than the original offer and some extra benefits and finally signed the contract after 36 days from the first telephonic call! Banks usually do not negotiate this hard but I had 3 competing offers and I guess they really liked me. I would suggest that someone review the salary market and play on their strengths. Also, please be very honest in your expectations because everyone in the process is very intelligent, otherwise they would not be sitting across the table from you.
