Assistant Banking Center Manager Interview

Assistant Banking Center Manager

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Bank of America in April 2014.

Interview Details – The process varies wildly depending on the managers you interview with. This review is based on the perspective of an internal applicant. The first step is pass 2 computer based assessments, the first is a personality test, the other is an assessment of your ability to manage a team. The second step is an interview with the banking center manager, and finally is an interview with the consumer market manager. At any point in this process you may be cut, with or without an explanation of why. If you are hired you will be contacted by the recruiter assigned to the position who will make a position and salary offer. There is room to negotiate, so I definitely recommend it.

Additionally, this position requires a squeaky clean background check, as is the case with most other positions with Bank of America.

Interview Question – Describe specific leadership experiences that apply to the financial sector. How will this experience help you in the new role? How do you motivate others?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Original offer was competitive but I was able to negotiate a higher starting salary.

Banking Center Assistant Manager Interview

Banking Center Assistant Manager
Seattle, WA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Bank of America in August 2010.

Interview Details – My hiring process was different from others from what I've seen. The only time I interviewed was for a teller position. I applied online and was contacted by someone in Ohio. They were really nice and then sent me to my future banking center. The assistant manager was late to the interview and only had 2 questions to ask. Once hired i've been promoted three times and transferred, with pay increases, to two other banking centers none had additional processes.

Interview Question – Sell me a product...   View Answer

Negotiation Details – There is none they tell you how much you'll make.

Very Difficult Interview

Assistant Banking Center Manager Interview

Assistant Banking Center Manager

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Bank of America.

Interview Details – Bank of America definitely takes their hiring process very serious and be prepared for an extensive process. I will say it is worth it in the end!

It begins with the initial application. Then there is the initial assessment which is the general personality type test. If you pass, then there is the live environment coaching simulations. There is 24 hours between each assessment. If you pass this then there is an initial screening with a recruiter who asks pay etc and then sets up an interview with a recruiter who only handles leadership/manager interviews, about a week between the interviews. After this interview you are generally interviewed by the Market Manager (Area manager), but since my market manager was on vacation I was interviewed by the BCM. The BCM (branch manager) interviewed me and I believed I did well and was referred to the the Market Manager, once again a week between the interviews. The Market Manager interviewed me and then a week later an interview with the Performance Manager of the branches. Three days later I was called with an offer. I was given the pay I requested after much negotation, which wasn't an easy process. The process overall was 1.5-2 months long.

Interview Question – Why should we choose you for this job given your lack of background in this field?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Very difficult. They don't want to negotiate. In the end I got what I asked for, but after a very tough negotiation. THEY HAVE TO WANT YOU TO GIVE YOU THE PAY YOU TRULY WANT-at least in my opinion.

**Please note that the background check for this industry is very extensive**

Interview Details – Very pleasant. Two assessments taken regarding personality and possible situations. Interviewed with banking center manager and two "regional" managers.

Banking Center Assistant Manager Interview

Banking Center Assistant Manager
New York, NY

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Bank of America in March 2012.

Interview Details – I was contacted by email stating that I made it to the next step of the hiring process. The next step was an assessment part which took about an hour asking me personality questions. After about a week I received another email from a recruiter explaining I made it to the next round and needed to take a coaching simulation . After passing the coaching simulation which are video senerios where you coach your employees in different situations. I did a phone interview with the recruiter who asks you about your background and asks you situational questions. After completing that I had a 1:1 with my branch manager.

Negotiation Details – Stick your guns! explain i details your accomplishments and not what u"can" do but what you will do. Do research and research not only your position but the area and clientele.
