    Associate Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Investors Group (Toronto, ON) in September-2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and two hours after they called me to book an interview appointment for two days later. They were hiring for two positions, associate consultant and consultant. I applied to associate consultant. When I arrived, they asked me to fill out the questionnaire which contained long answer questions about my network, my goals, what I expect to earn in 5 and 10 years later, and how to handle Clients. It took half and hour and then the interviewer came to me. He asked me about my educations and which position I want to be hired.

    Associate Consultant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Investors Group (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.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Investors Group.

    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

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Investors Group (Winnipeg, MB).

    Interview

    First interview with a Manager and then the second interview with the same Manager and a VP. Both seemed very informal. Position information was given in detail. Open to questions and answered all on the spot. Job offer came approximately one week later with a start date two weeks after that.

    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Investors Group in June-2010.

    Interview

    The hiring process was extremely slow they allow me to take the test but they wont give me the offer until i passed the course wich it took me over a month, i was very annoyed for it. i will tell any one who wants to start a career in this place to get the license or to have a lot of time to study. because if you are planning to have a check , this is not a way to start. do not believe that having a lot of family of friends will helps you to start having clients. this kind of contact are the most difficult to work with.
