    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Bank of America in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    Submitted a resume via my school's career site. Was invited for an on campus interview. Met with two bankers from the Chicago office, who focused mostly on strange behavioral questions. They really pressured me into explaining why I came to this school, instead of an Ivy League school, which I found strange. They didn't seem to interested from the beginning, and I received an email the next day that told me I had been rejected.

    Interview Questions
    • Why did you choose to come to this school over any other school?

    Interview Details

    I went through 3 interviews with different levels of managers and recruiter all sessions went over the phone and I followed up with everyone. I specifically expressed I am pursuing an MBA program on campus attending classes on Saturdays. The 2 first recruiters disregarded my limitations and stated that wasn't a problem. When I finished the 3rd round I explained again my Saturdays limitations, then the last interviewed said right away I could not continue with the hiring process because of that situation ???

    Interview Details

    Fast Process, had two phone screens and then was flown out to New York for Superday. Long Super day. there were two groups of canadites each with about six to eight applicants. Had 4 interviews, three were one on ones and the other was a two on one. Met with people in various groups and different levels. Half were more of just an intro since they were hiring for there latin american group specifically and I was not a fit for that group. the other was purely behaviorial and fit type questions. Very interested in past experience and motivation for wanting to work in credit. The two on one was very technical and asked about industries and companies you found interesting. Never got a response from them.

    Summer Analyst Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Bank of America.

    Interview Details

    Applied through college, heard back in 3 days that I got a on-campus interview the following week. It was mostly random questions, not even related to investment banking, market or my previous internship. Initially I thought that's probably just because I've done nothing finance related so the interviewer chose to exclude the technical questions, but then everyone else had the more or less similar experience. The interviewer was really nice though. I felt kinda clueless during the interview.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Bank of America.

    Interview Details

    Applied through campus fair. Basic interview process. Phone interview during which they stepped through your resume and asked questions about the programming language on there or project you did. Half of the phone interview was technical(classic C++ interview questions, sorting algorithms, navigating a linked list). Half was behavioural( What classes are you taking, How do you balance work and school etc)

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing really stood out that you don't see on C++ interview prep websites. How to tell if a linked list is circular threw me for a loop but I recovered fast enough. Explain the mergesort algorithm   View Answer

    AML Analyst/Desk Investigator Interview

    Interview Details

    Went through a staffing agency and did an in-person interview. Interviewed with the manager of the department. She basically said that all her employees were contractors who were laid off previously. She made it seem she keeps on rehiring them on an 'as needed' basis. So no permanent hire/no benefits. That was a red flag for me, which cause my disinterest to the position. A few situation/behavior questions, AML related. I didn't feel comfortable with the interview because the manager was making odd mean-like faces. She was also talking about the position in a threatening manner. Like they (her and another off site manager) can tell if your good for the position within a week. I took it as, they monitor your process for a week, and if your not up to par the will let you go. IDK, to me, an interviewer should make you want to work there, make you jump at the opportunity. Not tell you about the negatives of how the dept is and look at you like you're automatically not up to par. Oddly Negative Experience.
