Easy Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Scotiabank (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in May 2016.

Interview

HR made the first contact via phone. HR told me that for the personal interview I was required to prepare a ppt. Personal interview was with three people: Hiring Manager and two team members to whom I presented the ppt they have requested. The hiring manager arranged for the VP to interview me that same day. The interview with the VP was quick and formal.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Scotiabank (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in September 2015.

    Interview

    The first interview was via telephone and the follow up online. The interview panel really made me comfortable it was all about what skills and experience they needed and how I would be able to fulfill those needs. The interview kicked off by the panelists explaining their current needs and outlining the details of the job. They went over my resume and asked questions about some of the details and experiences outlined in my resume (be able to articulate what is on your resume with real examples to backup). Demonstrate your leadership skills and outline why you would be an asset to the organization.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Scotiabank in February 2015.

    Interview

    Very positive. Open and frequent communication with the hiring manager and HR. Never felt I was out of the loop as to what was going on, and my inquiries were responded to in a timely manner. HR reached out to me to schedule the initial panel interview within days of applying online. Throughout the process they were very clear about timelines, and as an applicant this means a lot. It takes only a minute to send an email with a timeline update, and that effort goes a long way to engaging the candidates and making them want to work for Scotia.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Scotiabank (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in May 2009.

    Interview

    Had four interviews - firstly with two Directors, then a phone interview with someone from HR, followed by an interview by a Vice President and lastly by a Senior Vice President.

    Interview Questions

    • No really difficult questions, only the SVP who interviewed me was not an easy person to talk with.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Not able to negotiate - I was told it was take it or leave it. As a new migrant, I didn't have a choice, and also didn't know how to interview. Consequently, like most migrants, I am probably paid less than my counterparts who were born in Canada and are Caucasians.
