I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at BMO Capital Markets (Los Angeles, CA) in October 2015.
The process was a bit different than conventional recruiting as I had a contact who had accepted an offer to come back to BMO after interning for them the previous summer and reached out to me asking if I was interested in applying. After sending him my resume and cover letter, I received correspondence from one of the HR directors informing me that I'd been selected for a first round interview to be conducted over WebEx consisting of 2 x 20 min. interviews. They ended up having technical difficulties day of and emailed me 15 minutes prior to inform me that the interview would be conducted over the phone as opposed to video conference. The interview was straight forward: both interviewers worked within actual teams and were relatively senior (one was a Director, the other the most senior researcher). The first interview was essentially all fit-based questions, run-down of the resume, key selling points within it, etc. The second interview had several technical questions, nothing mind shattering but basic corporate finance/financial market knowledge stuff as well as a few fit-based questions. This was the first round interview and I am awaiting to hear whether I moved on to the 2nd round at the time of this writing (day of, post interview).
