    Teller Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Bank of America (Lexington, MA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    The phone interview with Bank of America was an interesting interview but somewhat difficult because I have no formal Banking Experience but I do have small business, accounting, tax and consulting experience being self employed within a family owned business. In addition, for the past 3 years, I have been teaching within the subject area of history and decided that this was not for me. As a result, I have been striving to enter into the Banking industry due to my self employment history in business. I realized during this phone interview that becoming a teller would be the perfect challenge that I would need to spear head my career to the next level. The next step if chosen will be the face-to-face interview which I will be informed of next week. Wish me good effort.

    Teller Operations Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Bank of America (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    You will submit an application via website and if they like your application a recruiter will e-mail any necessary assessments if they decide to proceed. If you pass the assessments the recruiter will do a phone interview with you and if they like you will set up an interview with who your direct manager would be. In some instances instead of interviewing with the direct manager they will do what is called a round table and you and a few others applying for the same position will interview with a bunch of managers looking to fill the same position. If a manager takes a liking to you they will offer you a position. Round tables are usually done for outside candidates, while one on one interviews are done for internal candidates.

    Interview Questions

    • Was currently employed as a Sales Specialist with the bank and was underperforming in my sales categories because I was filling in as the Teller Operations Specialist in her absence. Was asked, "Based on how low your current performance metrics are, why should we hire you?"   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    They make an offer and make it seem like there is to be no negotiation. However, if you tell them you were looking for a little more they will usually wiggle a little bit but nothing too substantial.

    Sale and Service Specialist Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Bank of America (Waltham, MA).

    Interview

    I was already a teller, so the manager already knew me before the interview process. However, during the "round table" interview, I was interviewed by him as well as several higher-ups. They will ask some technical questions to gauge skill, but mostly they want to know how comfortable you are with people and whether or not you have energy and a naturally friendly personality. If you can think of a joke that relates (and doesn't insult banks), that will help show them you're outgoing and have good humor.

    Interview Questions

    • "What would you do if you had a disagreement with a co-worker or supervisor?"   Answer Question
