    Financial Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Vancouver, BC

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Investors Group (Vancouver, BC) in October-2017.

    Interview

    Began with a very positive phone interview and was told I’d be emailed an assessment after which I’d be called back in a few days regardless of how the assessment went for an in person interview.

    The assessment was simple behavioral questions like “on a scale of 1-10 how much do you enjoy working hard” and took about an hour.

    Sent the assessment in and never heard back.

    Emailed to follow up and again never heard back.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Investors Group (Toronto, ON).

    Interview

    It was a very pleasant and simple experience. I found it not to be stress-inducing, but rather it was calm and relaxing. It was 1-to-1 and took probably less than 10 minutes. The person in charge of recruiting was very kind and approachable, which contributed to the calm stress-free setting.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Investors Group.

    Interview

    This interview was for a beginner level software developer. The interview consisted of learning mainly if I was going to fit into the team. I believe IG understands that most university graduates have great potential and that what they do not know, they can learn.

    The interview lasted about half and hour and the job was acquired. Many technologies used within IG aren't taught in school, and so the interviewee should have an open mind for learning. However, there is also a web team and if interviewing for that, it's self-explanatory that you should be carrying certain skill sets going into the interview.

    Interview

    Manager pulled my resume off another job site and asked if I was interested in coming in to talk possibilities. First meeting was about an hour, filled 50% with me telling him about myself and 50% him telling me more about the company. He asked if I would agree to complete a personality profile and promised to share the results even if the results suggested I would not be a good hire. I completed the profile online from home later in the day, it was around 80 questions long taking about 45min of my time.
