    Region Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Toronto, ON
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at IG Wealth Management (Toronto, ON) in January-2017.

    Interview

    I had 3 interviews over the entire recruitment process, all of which were very comfortable. The interviewers were friendly, offered a lot of information about the position and had well thought out questions about my experience based on my resume. It felt more like a conversation than a strict interview setting.

    I also needed to fill out a personality survey and complete a criminal records check. The process was very professional and thorough, which made me feel like the company took great care in their decisions for recruiting and I felt very proud when they offered me the position.

    I've now been working with IG for 1.5 years and have found management to be very supportive. There are a lot of resources for employees who are interested in professional development and the Company itself demonstrates a commitment to developing meaningful participation in Diversity and Inclusion initiatives within the company and for the community as a whole.

    I really love working with this team and would very much recommend becoming a part of the team.

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at IG Wealth Management (Midtown Toronto, ON) in June-2016.

    Interview

    Can't say it's a good interview. I applied associate consultant position, but during the interview, the interviewer just keep asked me the detail about the market proposal and when to start your own business which I don't feel it's an associate position should consider.
    During the info session before the interview IG emphasised a lot about how their training help the associates, which I couldn't foresee from the interview.

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at IG Wealth Management.

    Interview

    fist interview was more of an information session they did most of the talking, second interview was with the consultant who was looking for an associate. Lots of questions, description type questions. They were very nice and couldn't really tell if they were being genuine or not :) Second interview was relatively harder since they would go beyond 2 examples with some of the questions so you have to prepare at least 3 examples

    Associate Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at IG Wealth Management.

    Interview

    After a friend passed along my resume I got a call to have an interview for an associate consultant position for investors group in Burnaby. Once the interview began the recruiter told me that she decided she did not want to interview me for the original position, but instead she would interview me for an office assistant internship. After three summers working in various finance internships, a finance degree from UBC, and investment banking experience I was disappointed to have spent an hour bussing to hear that she wanted me to work in a low-level job, however, we continued on with the interview.

    She proceeded to ask a serious of questions that were in no way related to the job and took notes on my answers (she took notes on my parent's job and background). I am fortunate to be a university student whose parents pay for my education, however, I do not understand how asking my parent's job title and my financial situation was relevant to the job.

    The office admin/recruiter was very unprofessional with the handling of the process, I am thankful that I have other opportunities and do not have to accept the sales pitch she tried on me.
