    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 months - interviewed at Bank of America.

    Interview Details

    The process took 3 months in total. I applied after seeing info. at campus recruitment events and HR contacted me 1.5 mo. later to begin the interviewing process. First round was a phone interview with a member of the department pertaining to my analyst position. Next, HR contacted me to attend final round interviews on-site. These interviews consisted of two one-on-one interviews with seasoned employees. Everyone I spoke to was very easy to talk to and nice. Behavioral-based interviews. Know the company's current initiatives and state of affairs, as well as important events that are affecting the economy as a whole.

    Interview Details

    Not too bad, started with the normal stuff. Then it shifted over to a bit more technical areas, including a bit of DCF and methods of valuation. Be sure that you are coming into a major bulge bracket bank, so there is a level of knowledge you must possess. They were friendly

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 months - interviewed at Bank of America in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    I first interviewed over the phone with the recruiter for the division. After that, I met with the team that the recruiter suggested I join. I met with the two heads of the team for 1:1 interviews. Each lasted about 20 minutes. They pretty much just reviewed my resume and asked me what business and technical skills I had.

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a day - interviewed at Bank of America in September 2010.

    Interview Details

    I spoke with a recruiting agent, and he was able to secure me a telephone interview with an insurance company. I had to submit an application on the internet, and then after reviewing my application and resume, they contacted me through email for a phone interview. A date and time was set, and the interview took place. It was a pretty straight forward interview.
