    Interview

    Its been 10 years but be ready to wait. The hiring process is all red tape and even after you have been contacted, take the test, meet the Executive, you still have to get fingerprinted, go to the center and enter your I-9 and then wait a couple more weeks while your financial background comes back before you are made the offer and then another week or so before you start. Very LONG process. I don't know why they haven't figured it out yet but it is just as frustrating for the current associates as it is for the ones trying to be hired

    Interview Questions

    • Be prepared for alot of scenario questions. Tell me a time when you had to deal with a difficult customer. Tell me a time when you had to coach an associate on something you saw that was unethical and you knew was wrong. Every question they will expect you yo answer with the situation, the behavior you exhibited and the outcome.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    ask for hirer they seem to like to pay newbies more then the existing associates.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Bank of America (Houston, TX) in February 2014.

    Interview

    Initial phone interview with recruiter to go over your credentials. Second interview to meet with the hiring manager and to go over your resume and your background. Detailed description of the job and what to expect and what they expect out of you. Third meeting with the territory manager to go over your resume again. This person is just to give the hiring manager a second opinion. I was basically told I was going to be offered the job.

    • Pretty straight forward questions, no behavioral questions. They are just looking to hire experienced professionals with licenses and a track record with sales experience.   Answer Question

    No negotiations, salary is set.

    Application

    I applied through other source – interviewed at Bank of America.

    Interview

    I got my foot in the door and seem to have come pretty close to getting the job. There was someone inside who was a good candidate, and I think they were just seeing "who else was out there." What's great about that: a company promoting from within. I don't feel like my time was wasted. I feel like should I ever make inside there in a capacity I like? I may have an opportunity for good recognition and growth like that person did.
