    Client Service Officer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lethbridge, AB
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at ATB Financial (Lethbridge, AB) in February-2017.

    Interview

    - I submitted my online application and completed ATB personality test in December 2016.
    - Initial phone interview with HR representative in January 2017.
    - Face-to-face interview with Senior Team Lead and another manager in February 2017.
    - Invited for a second round of interview the week after, but it was cancelled as an internal candidate has been selected.

    Overall it was a very pleasant experience. Your HR partner will stay with you every steps of the way including a prompt notification of interview re-scheduling. My initial face interview had to be re-scheduled due to weather issues but it was informed promptly to me via e-mail. Allowing me to make the necessary adjustment to my already busy schedule.

    The face-to-face interview was very definitely very cordial. They certainly know how to make you feel at ease and the flow of the interview felt akin to just a regular conversation between old friends.

    ATB is really good at keeping their candidates in the loop. Even the cancellation of my second interview came directly via a call from the director whom I supposed to be interviewing in the first place. Definitely reduced the sting of disappointment of not getting the position.

    Even though I didn't get the position, the tremendous amount of supports, follow-ups, encouragements, and kind words throughout the entire process solidifies my admiration towards ATB. This might not be my time to join the organization yet, but I absolutely will try again once the next opportunity comes up.

    Interview Questions

    • A lot of situational and behavioural questions for the position I applied. Some historical and background question as well as I think ATB really want to know who you are as a person instead of just another candidate.

      The one question that stuck with me was "how do you define a great leader?". Definitely something that I never encountered before, so that was a good experience.

      No out of the ordinary questions.   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at ATB Financial (Calgary, AB) in June-2017.

    Interview

    I was interviewed by someone who did not have interview experience. I was told that the culture team was supposed to be there but there was a time conflict. So the head of the team brought someone who has worked as a market research manager for only 3 months at the company. Mostly behavioural questions. However, did not really seem like they even know what answers they were looking for.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at ATB Financial (Calgary, AB) in June-2017.

    Interview

    The interview was quite good, but they haven't gotten back to me in over a month to give an update on if there will be a second interview or if I wasn't a successful candidate or anything. Very frustrating not receiving responses to voice mail inquiries. Really love ATB culture so would love to work there. Still waiting for any type of update.

    Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Edmonton, AB

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at ATB Financial (Edmonton, AB) in April-2017.

    Interview

    Cultural-fit quiz is default when submitting your application - do some research on ATB's culture at this point (if you haven't already) to make sure you pass the fit test. Took a few weeks (two or three) after submitting my application to get invited to a screening interview over the phone. Phone interview was 20-30 minutes; primarily cultural questions that (if you know about ATB's culture in advance) are all fairly straight forward. Some standard behavioural and generic job-related questions as well. This is with HR. Next interview was scheduled about two weeks later (HR noted they always conduct two interviews - sometimes three). This was over the phone (I'm out-of-province) and with the same HR professional plus the department director and a senior manager. Some behavioural questions as well as more in-depth technical questions; nothing too difficult - all related to the initial job posting and my prior experiences. Didn't hear back after about two weeks so I contacted HR - followed up within an hour letting me know they went with someone else for X reason (which was fair and feedback was appreciated). Everyone seemed intelligent and friendly throughout the process, albeit busy - so be patient.
