    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at MD Financial Management.

    Interview

    MD were absolute professionals in every part of this interview process. They maintained regular communication with me and knew exactly what the next steps were.

    Step 1 was a phone interview with the HR team, followed by an interview with the regional manager. The final round was a panel interview with another regional manager and the team of consultants.

    Senior Financial Planner Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, ON
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at MD Financial Management (London, ON) in April 2019.

    Interview

    MD Mgmt has a history of high turnover. They also tend to post jobs that aren't open, and not post jobs that are open. It is my understanding that they mainly hire / interview people they have known about for over a few years. The interview was positioned as an Informal meeting, yet there was an opening. -It turned out to be a formal interview, yet there was presumably no opening. This is backwards to the way most companies interview.

    Sep. 16, 2019 – AVP Talent Acquisition

    We are always proactive in the search for top talent to join the MD team. Whether it be for a current vacancy or a future opportunity, we often connect with people, who either apply directly on our career website or those whom we actively source ourselves, to discuss their experience and interests and to share information about our Company. Through various channels, one of which includes a job posting, we continually build relationships with candidates in order to fill our current or future anticipated roles. Overall turnover rate at MD is much lower than the average for the industry.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at MD Financial Management (Toronto, ON) in September 2018.

    Interview

    I interviews twice with Carol located in Ottawa. She was very kind and easy to get along with. She made the process that can be a little challenging to be very natural. I then met with Sharon who shared the same qualities and continued to make the onboarding process enjoyable. They worked to provide the best offer they could and were very communicative throughout the entire process. Very impressive! I would recommend anyone looking and qualified to look into MD as an option.

    Interview Questions

    • Asked about my past experiences.. I felt like she actively insult my background experience.
      (used wrong filtering questions to eliminate me from the hiring process... clearly this position required business development skills and the job description clearly stats that "convert opportunities into new clients", but I was told that it is not what we're looking for... this tells me that I might even have been eliminated due to my foreign accent)   1 Answer

    Team Leader Interview

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

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7+ weeks. I interviewed at MD Financial Management (Toronto, ON) in October 2017.

    Interview

    I couldn't make the scheduled in-person interview (manager came to town from another city) so had a conference call with the hiring manager and one staff member. Both were professional. HR was efficient and called when promised. Unfortunately, HR also kept me hanging for two weeks with excuses such as "We're researching compensation rates" and "We're looking at the department structure," before informing me I would not be moving forward due to not having a financial background - which was clearly evident in my resume. If you're not interested and still "candidate shopping," be transparent about it rather than dragging the process out.
