    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at BMO Capital Markets (Chicago, IL) in October 2017.

    Interview

    This was an extremely unprofessional and unethical process. I come from a university that is considered "non-target" at BMO even though they gave three offers out to students at my university last year and we place 30+ students in banking every year. This year they invited 2 of us to superdays, kept postponing it, and a VP who is an alum from my university told me what was really happening. I was being placed on hold and they were planning on just keeping me on my feet postponing my pending superday in hopes that I would just give up. I withdrew my application and told them about how unprofessional and unethical the process had been
