    Banking Center Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Bank of America.

    Interview Details

    Everything was good until the in-person interview, which was very unorganized.

    I submitted my application, and got responded to 2 weeks later to take an assessment. I took it right away (fill in the bubbles), and 1 week later I got a response to take a 2nd assessment. I took that one right away too, and it was a noticeably more difficult situation/scenario assessment, kind of like a WWYD setting. I got a response about a week later to schedule a call with the recruiter. Got the call, was asked a few questions like "why do you want to work for us", nothing unusual. Then I was scheduled to meet with the Market Manager a week later. The instructions said to take my resume with me and dress in a suit & tie.

    I went to the interview the following week, and met with both the Market Manager and a fellow Banking Center Manager. Contrary to the recruiter's instructions, they didn't want my resume due to having printed out papers about me. The BCM thought I was applying for a Personal Banker position, which was why the BCM was there to begin with. Even when that was clarified, the BCM still assisted the Market Manager in the interview process. She should have left the room.

    The interview took a good hour, with lots of personal questions and nothing to do with my relevant banking experience. They literally wrote an essay of comments of every answer I made. They wanted to know about my personal life, which is definitely not what I expected. Questions asked were why I chose banking, and what do my parents do. It was very strange.

    Two weeks later I got an email saying they denied me the position. 1st, why say to take a resume when they didn't need one? 2nd, why did they not know ahead of time which position I was applying to? 3rd, who gets interviewed by their potential equal/coworker? So much for all of that in-interview writing.

    Interview Details

    Applied through university. Had a first round on campus (behavioral) and then was called for the superday interviews in New York. Superday was again behavioral and technical questions. Interviewers were very friendly and the process was quite engaging. Questions were basic fit questions and the technicals were the standard as well nothing too complicated.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Bank of America.

    Interview Details

    BOA called and set up for phone interview. During the phone interview, first they asked me about my back ground and me self. After that ask so much questions that not really relate to personal banker position. So wasn’t difficult to answers. After phone interview they set me the face to face interview with branch manager and district manager and interview was basically same as phone interview.

    I applied through other source. The process took a weekinterviewed at Bank of America.

    Interview Details

    The process was quick because it was all internal. Discussed my numbers and sales attributes to the financial center and that was it. When working in New York City, it is a very small market and everyone knows everyone

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Bank of America.

    Interview Details

    Thy ar fairly quick about reaching out to set up interviews. First they will do a phone interview with the recruiter to determine of you meet the basic qualifications. If you do, then they'll send you to a group panel interview with area managers as well as branch manager (usually 4-5 total). This panel interview is where you need to make yourself stand out. Share your successes, how you've exceeded expectations and your general business acumen. They are looking for strong sales people, banking experience helps, but as long as you can sell, they will teach you the banking part. Also I've prepared to ask them questions because that always helps. After the panel interview you may go to individual branch managers for one on one interview before an offer is made. The recruiter will call you and let you know.

    It was friendly and comfortable. They did ask a lot of real life questions such as "what are your hobbies, do you have kids, what did you do prior to this" The managers are super friendly.I felt like every question asked, however, was read off of the managers clip board... She did not seem too enthusiastic.

    Interview Details

    The first-round interview was a phone-interview, and the superday in New York was notified 3 days before. Interviewers were very nice. 3 rounds back-to-back interviews. Questions contained both behavioral and technical. Tech questions could go further if you sounded mechanical.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Bank of America.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and underwent the accelerated interview process. Had 3 interviews, each were about half an hour long- all were with pretty senior people at the firm, and two rounds were with individuals in IBD, and the other was with S&T. They were all extremely kind, though the environment felt different for each interview (depending on the personality of the interviewer). Mainly fit questions, (walk me through your resume, tell me about yourself) and a few valuation questions (DCF, valuation football field).

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Bank of America.

    Interview Details

    Unpredictable and Unorganized interview process. The recruiters are calling from different states and are often not well coordinated with the local management you are interviewing with. The management is not concerned about the time you took out of your schedule for the interview and will often keep you waiting for up to a half an hour when you show up on time.
