Sales & Service Specialist
Gilbert, AZ

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Bank of America in February 2013.

Interview Details – First, apply online, pass the minimum qualifications then get an opportunity to use the assessment. If you pass the assessment you move on to another interview with the branch manager. After which in Gilbert you have to interview with the Market manager as well. Then the recruiter will contact you about pay and the job.

Interview Question – Questions range from "Tell me about a time when a customer was irate and what you did to calm the situation and what was the result?" Most questions are sales and customer service related, asking about various experiences you have had.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – They don't negotiate salary.

Sales & Service Specialist Interview

Sales & Service Specialist
Manassas, VA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Bank of America in September 2012.

Interview Details – Honestly, this is the last interview I went through, which is the one I can remember the most. With every job position you go through, or every banking center you wish to transfer to, you will have to interview. The last transfer I made was from Teller Operations Specialist to Sales & Service Specialist. When I first walked into this banking center, the lobby leader greeted me and let me have a seat in the lobby. I observed the tellers and they were very professional-looking. However, you can always tell that they are wondering who this person (me) is. When I was called to meet with the manager, I was given a firm handshake, which is the first sign of confidence. I was asked, why I wanted to step down positions; what I knew about the role; what i was bringing to the table. After all the questions, I met with their teller operations specialist (lead teller), and she did a mini interview, mostly teller-related questions. Then I was taken on a tour of the banking center and I was introduced to everyone (this is done to everyone, whether you got the job or not). Later on, I received a phone call from the recruiter, who is the person who will let you know if they are interested in you or not.

Interview Question – The most "difficult" thing to do that they almost always ask, is to role play a certain scenario in dealing with a customer.   Answer Question
