Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at CIBC (Toronto, ON) in September 2011.

Interview

The interview was for an Associate position within CIBC's Technology Leadership Associate Program (TLAP). It was in a group interview format with two interviewers. Overall, the interview atmosphere was very relaxed and the interviewers (one of whom was a current TLAP associate) took a lot of notes in the process.

They started off by asking questions such as 'Why TLAP', 'Walk me through your resume', 'What are your career goals'. They then went on to ask some situational/behavioural questions.

- Describe a failure you faced.
- What did you learn from the failure?
- Give an example when you applied that learning.
- Tell me about a time when you had to persuade someone to agree to your viewpoint.
- Explain your weaknesses.
- Do you have any questions for me?

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at CIBC (Toronto, ON) in November 2016.

    Interview

    3 stage process, with short meeting in first stage and more technical at later stages. Next, was group stages conducted with 3 people originally and then 3 other members joined. Overall, it was a bit intimidating, but also a quick way to meet the team. Also, the interviewers focused less on technical questions for the majority of the time, and went of to test the right fit for a analyst/ sales position.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at CIBC (Toronto, ON) in July 2019.

    Interview

    Applied online and two weeks later received an e-mail from a talent acquisition specialist asking to come in for an in-person interview with one day's notice. Found it bizarre there was no phone screen and such short notice. The in-person interview was with the Hiring Manager, who preferred to disagree with almost all my answers to questions, yet seemed to note I was qualified for the role. Was told it was "bad" I did not have any prior banking experience. When I stressed the importance of diversity for this role, he backtracked. Why not hire internally if you only want a parochial set of candidates? Got the feeling they already had an internal candidate in mind, but were just going through the motions for the interview. E-mailed the manager a thank you after the interview, and followed up with talent acquisition two weeks later via e-mail. Was ignored. Two weeks after that got a generic rejection e-mail. Very disrespectful to the candidate, and left a very bitter aftertaste.
