    Account Manager-Vorstellungsgespräch

    Anonymer Mitarbeiter in Edmonton, AB (Kanada)
    Angebot angenommen
    Positive Erfahrung
    Schweres Gespräch

    Bewerbung

    Ich habe mich auf Empfehlung eines Mitarbeiters beworben. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im Juli 2017 bei Canadian Western Bank (Edmonton, AB (Kanada)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    Interview was intense and demanding. Phone interview followed up by two successive in person interviews. Make sure you know something about the company and like you actually want the job. Their financial statements illustrate many of the beliefs and values of the organization and they are a good indication if you are a right fit for the job. Know what they do and how they do it. Several hours of preparation are nothing in the grand scheme of things and it can mean the difference between beginning a career with a growing and evolving company or flipping burgers at McDonalds (only to be replaced by a robot when the minimum wage in this socialist province increases).

    Bewerbung

    Ich habe mich auf Empfehlung eines Mitarbeiters beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte mehr als 2 Monate. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert bei Canadian Western Bank.

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    Approached directly by a Regional VP to join.
    Discussion centred on corporate goals/processes/attitudes and compensation. The former centred on the ability to implement much needed changes to attain market competitiveness and thus success/satisfaction in the position. The latter took extensive negotiation to arrive at a barely satisfactory level (which remained well below competitor levels).

    Fragen im Vorstellungsgespräch

    • Nothing unexpected.
      Emphasis was on the network of contacts that could be exploited for business development purposes.   Frage beantworten

    Verhandlungsdetails

    Very tedious. A lot of nickel and diming over compensation.

    Account Administrator-Vorstellungsgespräch

    Anonymer Mitarbeiter in Vancouver, BC (Kanada)
    Angebot angenommen
    Neutrale Erfahrung
    Leichtes Gespräch

    Bewerbung

    Ich habe mich über einen Personalvermittler beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte 3 Tage. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im August 2017 bei Canadian Western Bank (Vancouver, BC (Kanada)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    I'll start off with the WORST part of my experience. The company uses a recruiting agency for temporary workers. They are given a fixed amount of money to hire a fixed number of people. The money pays for the worker's wages but any remainder is profit for the agency. Read the "negotiation phase" below these two paragraphs.

    Before the negotiations, there wasn't much of an "interview" but more of a pre-screening and assessment to check that you're a sensible professional-sounding and looking person. Since the agency is paid for filling up the position, they basically ask you questions about your past work experience to try and pitch you as a good candidate for the position so that they can fill it up quickly and move on to the next person/position.

    After the interview, they send you an online typing test. It's not like most typing tests where you type sentences or paragraphs. It was a data entry test where you enter bits of information like names, addresses, and phone numbers. Entering postal codes was a little more challenging when you're not used to typing postal codes from other provinces.

    • What sort of data entry tasks have you performed at your previous employment?   1 Antwort

    Verhandlungsdetails

    The recruiter tried to negotiate my wage lower by saying things like "actually the wage the company is offering is lower than we expected..." and try to shift those requirements to the company. After lowering the wage a few dollars and you counteroffer a dollar higher they act like they will liaise and negotiate for you "ok we'll try our best to talk to them and see what we can do". Actually, the agency is given a budget to work within and the agency decides the wage while they keep the remainder. I recommend negotiating two to three dollars higher if they offer lower than you expected, and if they counter-offer again then hopefully you will still end up one to two dollars higher than their lowest offer. Every dollar matters since it would be difficult to negotiate any other terms (like benefits) with a recruiting agency!

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    Quick, ambiguous, and you could sense they needed people very badly. In hindsight it was obvious that there was management insecurity which became more of an issue later. Don't be nervous, despite the slow economy no one is available to be hired.
