    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Bank of America (Calabasas Hills, CA) in August 2013.

    Interview

    I was hired through a temp agency which is usually the process at Bank of America unless you know someone. If you do know someone a senior manager and happen to get your resume pushed an interview would just be going through the motions.

    Interview Questions

    • I have never been asked interview style questions as I was hired through the temp agency.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    The agency negotiates for you and it is an as is offer.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Bank of America (Charlotte, NC) in February 2013.

    Interview

    I was told by the recruiter, Randstad, that this was a Business Analyst role requiring previous reporting experience, and good Excel and PowerPoint skills. I went to a conference room and started the interview with the team leader and 3 team members. They used the phrase "this is a young team" approx. 3 times. It was clear I was older than any of them. They ended the interview questioning me and listening to my responses while all 4 of them worked on their laptops. I have worked with and interviewed with several multinational banks, in Charlotte, and NYC. This interview confirmed everything I have been told and inferred about the Bank of America corporate culture. (See below) Ironically, the reason I kept it together and finished the interview gracefully was the fact that I was older and more experienced than anyone in that room. Not one of them could have handled that situation with the grace and aplomb I displayed. Clearly, grace and aplomb were not job requirements at Bank of America.

    Interview Questions

    • After running through fairly standard interview questions, the team leader said "We eat, breathe and sleep Excel. Here's a 4 page test we give all of the candidates we interview." This was 4 pages on paper, without access to Excel. It involved interpreting formulas almost the width of the page, and writing formulas off the top of my head. I was not prepared for this by the recruiter, Randstad, whatsoever. This expert level of Excel did not appear anywhere in the job description I was shown. For the first time, I considered getting up and walking out of the interview.   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Bank of America (Plano, TX) in January 2013.

    Interview

    Wasnt too bad - was able to provide accurate information and everything went smooth.The over the phone was very generic. They asked questions like, describe a difficult time, what are you looking for etc.. The fact-to-face was a bit more intense, but still very simplistic.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Bank of America (Charlotte, NC) in June 2012.

    Interview

    The manager was very knowledgeable and knew exactly what they were looking for. They asked many questions pertaining to the role. Some of the questions were difficult, so be prepared to be drilled. Make sure you prepare thoroughly for the interview and ask lots of questions. Get your questions ready before the interview and review your resume. And most importantly send a thank you note immediately after the interview.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Bank of America (Chicago, IL) in February 2011.

    Interview

    I had my last interview on February 2011. This was with the functional manager; so I thought I was for sure getting the job. It was my 3rd interview and they actually flew me in from California to Chicago to meet this person. Interviewer was going through my resume, basically to figure out where I would fit in the team. The interview seemed pretty well; until I never heard back from them. I tried following up 2 weeks later; and they told me that everything had gone great. Except they had a HIRING FREEZE. Is this the new: "we'll call you", don't call us" strategy? Anyway, I kept checking back; because thats' what they instructed me to do. to keep checking back every 2 weeks. Last time I checked back; and sort of also asked if I should give up; was in MAY 2011. I can't believe they wouldn't just say: forget it; we have another candidate. Stringing me along all this time. I could have been researching and interviewing somewhere else. I was pretty upset to find out I wasn't going to be hired 5 months after my firsts interview. No real follow up or professional attitude.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Bank of America (Charlotte, NC) in January 2011.

    Interview

    Very friendly interviewers. Bank of America embodies a very friendly yet professional atmosphere and you can see that from all employees. I was glad that the actual practioners in the division I applied for interviewed me rather than some HR person. Asked why I was interested in BoA and why the division.
    One MBA recent hire and one my school alum interviewers. Very communicative and all behavior questions. Received an offer the day after.
