I applied through an employee referral. The process took a day – interviewed at National Bank of Canada.
2 interviews, an HR screening interview and then, if you pass that, the real interview: with a director.
He or she will probably ask the usual stuff, financial knowledge, technical acumen. The more you know, the better, obviously. Depends on your background: if you are financial study technology a bit. If your technical, try to improve your knowledge of financial markets. There's a million books. Pick a few, read them. Learn the stuff. People depend on you.

I applied online. The process took a day – interviewed at National Bank of Canada (Montreal, QC) in December 2012.
So the hiring manager calls me, we setup an interview date. Come interview day, the meeting goes really well and the manager gives me positive feedback.
Then after many unreturned phone calls and emails, the trail goes cold. One week passes, then two, then three. What is up National Bank
I'm very disappointed to say the least. Speaking with friends that work at National Bank, not answering the phone and not returning repeated contacts appears to be standard operating procedure for letting a candidate know they are not accepted.
Obviously, I would not apply to work at National Bank again.

They want to see if you can sell anything to anyone. Cross-selling is really important. All the financial analysis thing is not important. Learn the basic of financials and you will learn it on when you get hired.
