Banking Center Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

Application Details

I applied online. The process took 3 months - interviewed at Bank of America.

Interview Details

Interview started with a phone interview with the recruiter, then online assessment. Next was an in person interview with two region VPs. After that I was interviewed on the phone by the Regional President. Everyone I dealt with was very professional, upbeat, and upfront. Each interview I asked the question, "do you think I am the type of person you are looking for for the position?" and everyone responded "Yes!" and laid out the next steps. I always knew what was coming next and what the time frame was. Again, the whole process was professional.

Interview Questions
Negotiation Details
The recruiter told me what the salary base range was (not a big spread) and they offered me just shy of the top, so I didn't need to negotiate.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Bank of America in January 2009.

    Interview Details

    The process was very straight forward. There was an initial phone screening, followed by an online test. There was then an interview with 2 recruiters and some customer simulations. That interview was followed by an interview with the executive, and then an offer about a week later. It was a very professional environment and experience, definitely a suit and tie process.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Bank of America in August 2011.

    Interview Details

    The initial interaction with the recruiter was by phone, she was very clear regarding the process which was great, as there were then no surprises or anxiety on my part. She kept to her timelines regarding the next steps which included an assessment and background check. the background check was done prior to interviewing with one of the hiring managers, which was great as that was out of the way in advance. I met with two different people, both of whom were exceptional in their manner, courteous and easy to speak to which made the process less stressful and increased my desire to work for the company. Additionally, the recruiter showed genuine interest in my view of the interview overall and asked for immediate feedback which I was happy to give. I was offered the position within a week of the 2nd interview.
    As a potential manager candidate it is a good idea to know the main values of the company, know the demographic area and be primarily interested in developing and coaching employees to success. The company values its employees and it was clear in speaking with all of those involved in the hiring process that they enjoy working for BofA and are proud to call it their place of employment.

    Negotiation Details
    $70,000 with a VP title. The recruiter was willing to ask for a higher salary than what is normally offered for that position because I was able to give references and had documented proof of previous success in the role.
