Had a MS Toronto first round a few days ago. It was pretty brutal and I probably failed.

MS Toronto had superdays and offers are out (Have been for like a week).

Aug 2, 2019

Yea. I know I didn't get it.

Spoke w Director at Barclays Toronto (alum from non-target) - 3 Toronto positions, 1 Calgary position. Recruitment to ramp up mid-late August apparently, heavy in Ivey recruiting but I was told I'd be included in process. National is sometime in August too, spoke w head recruiter and 3 MDs. 1 associate told me they're adding an aptitude test this year to apps. Speaking w BMO VP in coming week to figure out their schedule for recruitment.

I don't have connections at Scotia, or CIBC. Only ER connections at RBC.

I'd love to hear how recruitment is going for everyone else.

Barclays has started to move - 1st rounds starting btw.

Aug 12, 2019

thought it was pushed to september?

Aug 2, 2019

Does anyone know what the status is on BAML's recruiting process for Toronto? It doesn't look like their website has Toronto SA apps open but I've received emails saying that the apps are open from my school.

Aug 2, 2019

I didn't see anything on their website yet for IB recruitment, i expect something to launch this month. I would assume however that they are probably starting target recruitment very shortly which is why you are getting emails from your school

Aug 2, 2019

Right that would make sense. Thing is I thought it was target recruitment, but it was simply a reminder that "Apps are now live, made on rolling basis so apply early!". Problem is that puts me and probably many others in the same boat as you, as it looks like the only apps open are for NYC, Houston, LA, SF and Palo Alto. I'm sure CDN will start soon though!

Aug 2, 2019

There are Info Sessions being hosted in Toronto right now.

Not really SA, but wondering if anyone knows the timelines for Winter 2020? Mostly looking at the Big 5.

Also is RBC done for SA in Toronto?

Aug 2, 2019

Not really sure for Winter 2020, but my understanding was that Big 5s won't be done until October cause they go to targets in September for OCR. They may have an accelerated process, but I have no knowledge of that at the moment.

Aug 2, 2019

RBC Toronto did have an accelerated process for diversity, that might have been what they're referring to

Aug 8, 2019

RBC just opened yesterday to everyone.
I'm assuming they already did recruiting at targets

Aug 2, 2019

BMO accelerated recruiting has started for the associate level. Much of what I have heard from the other Canadian banks is end of August/early September for applications coming out.

BMO Scotia and National all up for targets

Aug 7, 2019

Can confirm at my school as well. Which means RBC TD and CIBC will probably have to move soon too.

Aug 14, 2019

TD not doing formal OCR this year. At least for 2020 FT positions, not sure about SA.
Only "select candidates" being invited to interview FT.

Anyone hear back for UBS Toronto first round?

Aug 9, 2019

UBS toronto started recruiting? OCR or did you apply online? target?

Aug 9, 2019

Yes they have started. They don't post.

Aug 9, 2019

Not sure if first rounds have been sent out but they've been accepting resumes through referrals

Does anyone know if the Canadian banks are taking sophomores as well? I'm from a U.S target, so I don't know if that'll help given I'm Canadian.

Aug 9, 2019

if you have the profile you will definitely have a shot. Im not sure if the canadian banks have a specific sophomore SA program like banks in the US have , but i know people that have got internships at canadian banks the summer before junior year

Aug 9, 2019

yeah definitely if you have the profile, im not sure if the jmsbgamechanger guy has the profile tho

Anyone hear from UBS?

Anyone know anything about BAML or Citi?

Aug 11, 2019

Idk about Citi Toronto but Citi Calgary has given quite a few first rounds out already. They have a weird process though.

Aug 11, 2019

BAML canada applications arent out yet, they have a reception this Wednesday so i think the applications will be out after that. Citi Toronto's apps drop next week, Calgary has given first rounds but then they ghosted everyone? Idk whats happening there tbh

Aug 19, 2019

Any idea if Citi Calgary still sending out more 1st rounds? Got my application in after your comment (Aug 11) :(

Aug 11, 2019

GS Calgary sent out hirevues, does anyone know about GS Toronto or JPM Calgary?

Aug 12, 2019

My buddy's got a GS TO superday this week. Not sure if that's the timeline for everyone in the office or not.

Aug 19, 2019

Any info on interview/superday timeline for GS Calgary? I know GS Toronto is pretty much wrapped up now

Aug 12, 2019

the guys at GS TO said that Canada-wide, they want to be wrapped up before school starts the first week of September

Good luck to your friend!

Yeah I should've updated this, TD and CIBC have since posted on my targets OCR site.

Has anyone finished the questionnaire for National - finishing it later tonight and wondering what the response rate is like for first rounds.

Aug 14, 2019

i have a friend who finished it yesterday; didn't hear back anything yet, but they seem to be recruiting earlier this year and it is rolling basis so maybe something soon

Heard from contacts at some of those banks that interviews won't be until last week of September

Aug 15, 2019

Anybody hear back from JPM Calgary (2020 FT) after submitting app and pymetrics?

Aug 18, 2019

Pretty sure JPM Calgary isn't recruiting for FT, the posting that's up wont really be used.

Aug 19, 2019

Any info on JPM Calgary interview timeline? Posting said they were considering interviews on rolling basis but no one I know has heard back after 2-3 weeks of having sent the application.

They are posted on my school portal, but also available online for anyone to apply to (search for the intern specific workday career site rather than the general one). Includes IB and S&T, as well as a few other postings. Currently attending a semi-target.

Alright thanks a lot for the help man

Aug 21, 2019

I am a little confused. How is recruitment already near finishing if On-Campus Recruitment in September has yet to even happen?

Also if anyone has any insight on Scotiabank's recruitment I would greatly appreciate it.

Aug 21, 2019

its not near finishing, its just getting started

Aug 21, 2019

But what is all this talk about recruitment finishing up? Also I have an additional question: Do I e-mail my contact to forward my resume in advance and then apply online afterward?
