    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Bank of America in December 2014.

    First round was back to back 20 minute phone interviews. The first interview was a bit technical. They asked for a stock pitch and which side of S&T I was interested in. The second interview was very conversational with a few behavioral questions. They asked me what classes I took and why I'm specifically interested in S&T. Programming knowledge is a plus.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Bank of America in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied via website & sent in my resume to the email posted on the ad.
    Was invited for an interview. Had my 1st round with an analyst and an associate.
    2nd round was with 2 VPs and 1 Director.
    After the interview, I got my reply within 2-3days. But the actual paper work only started 3 weeks after I received my acceptance result via phone.
    It seemed like that was normal for the FICC S&T desk interns.
