    Investment Banking Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Bank of America in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    I received the interview through on campus recruiting. I received an email from an employee shortly after congratulating me, which seemed a bit strange. The interview was one on one with an associate who was extremely hard to relate to. Barely asked any behavioral or fit questions, all he seemed to care about was my technical knowledge. Interview only lasted about 20 minutes because I don't think I answered his technical questions well enough.

    Teller Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Bank of America in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and completed the skills assessment. About 2 weeks later I received a phone call from Bank of America and the representative asked me a few questions before asking me would I be interested in the group teller interview. I agreed and went to the group teller interview the very next day. I did my research and was well prepared for the interview. We formed 3 groups of 3 and my group had to sell a sun visor which wasn't hard. I submitted my background check form and began waiting for the next step. The recruiter called and scheduled me with a face to face interview with the branch manager and assistant manager at a location a bit far from me, but I agreed. I thought I did great on my interview and shortly after the recruiter called me and said they said I did very well. Unfortunately I did not receive an offer and I had no idea there were 5 or more applicants interviewing for the same position. About 3 weeks later I get a second chance for an interview with a branch much closer to me. I felt the interview was very quick and I wasn't asked any questions related to the job. The branch manager said she had several other interviews as well so basically the same process once again. I am waiting to find out if I got the job but i'm very skeptical. My advice to anyone applying is DON'T PUT ALL YOUR EGGS IN ONE BASKET. I feel the recruiter should not select so many applicants if she knows there are not enough positions.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Bank of America in January 2012.

    Interview Details

    Group interview with HR, just be confident, good communication, dress professionally, and remember to smile because this is a customer service job. Next round interview with banking center manager, they will focus on questions about your experience with cash handling, customer service, and how comfortable and how good you make a sale. 40% in teller performance's overall score is making referrals to personal bankers. This is not easy because it is only count when customer agrees to sit down with a banker right after finishing the transaction with you and normally customers will just leave because they don't wanna stay, or wait on other people until their turn; or your referrals only count when customers actually come back on the appointment you book for them, and normally they don't come back for their appointment.

    • Not difficult. Just prepare to answer about your experience with cash handling, customer service, and sales.   Answer Question

    HR will call you for a phone interview and inform you about the salary. If you don't accept it, I don't think they will process you further to the first interview, which will be a group interview with HR.
