Banking Center Manager II Interview

Banking Center Manager II
Seattle, WA

I applied through an employee referral and interviewed at Bank of America.

Interview Details – The process took a very long time; about 2 months if I remember correctly. I had to take a long "test" online. There was the usual personality test, then situational questions. Then I had to go to a banking center and do a role play scenario over the phone for about 20 minutes. This involved a coaching situation with a long term successful employee with a declining performance. After that I had to interview with the Regional Manager. This involved the usual behavioral interview questions. The final step was a group interview with the two Market Managers and the Regional Manager

Interview Question – Who's your greatest inspiration, living or dead, and why?   Answer Question

Difficult Interview

Assistant Banking Center Manager Interview

Assistant Banking Center Manager

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Bank of America in April 2014.

Interview Details – The process varies wildly depending on the managers you interview with. This review is based on the perspective of an internal applicant. The first step is pass 2 computer based assessments, the first is a personality test, the other is an assessment of your ability to manage a team. The second step is an interview with the banking center manager, and finally is an interview with the consumer market manager. At any point in this process you may be cut, with or without an explanation of why. If you are hired you will be contacted by the recruiter assigned to the position who will make a position and salary offer. There is room to negotiate, so I definitely recommend it.

Additionally, this position requires a squeaky clean background check, as is the case with most other positions with Bank of America.

Interview Question – Describe specific leadership experiences that apply to the financial sector. How will this experience help you in the new role? How do you motivate others?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Original offer was competitive but I was able to negotiate a higher starting salary.
