    Interview Details

    An hr recruiter called me and gave me an phone interview (15 min). Then two days later I went to the branch and had an interview with only the branch manager. A few days later the hr recruiter called back and offered me the job. The interview process was very easy just make sure that you do your research and relax yourself an being yourself is key

    More behavioral than anything else. Wanted to get a sense of having somewhat of a quantitative background (either academic or professional) but otherwise it was behavioral. They preferred people with a risk and p&l background which I had so that aligned well.

    Interview Details

    Had five interviews with nine people in their San Francisco office. Basic interview questions such as my strengths, and weaknesses, and discussing my resume with them. Some interviewers were more relaxed while some grilled me with series of financial questions. Most technical questions were opinion based, the importance was placed on my thought process in backing up my answers.

    Senior Quality Analyst Interview

    Interview Details

    I was originally brought in as a three month temp for Countrywide in 2002. Near the end of the assignment I asked the manager what my chances would be in getting hired; she told me it was good. I completed the application and met with the same manager for a formal interview. We discussed my performance from the past three months and what my new duties would entail; I was initially brought in as a procedure writer. The interview was a short and unique process since the manager was able to judge my performance, and communicate with others I had been working with.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Bank of America.

    Interview Details

    Met the recruiter at a SWE conference and gave her my resume. A week later, I got an email inviting me to the "Final Round" of interviews to be held in New York, all expenses paid.
    Interview format was Technical Case Study, followed by three 30-minute interviews, back to back.
    You got a 30 minute study period to read the case study and then 10-15 mins to present it, with the interviewer asking you questions for the remaining time. The other interviews were all mostly technical interviews with the standard questions (binary trees, fibonacci sequence, overloading vs. overriding, determining if there is a cycle in a linked list, one brainteaser)
    Make sure you know what you put on your resume. They won't ask you about things you don't know, however.
    My last interviewer was extremely unprofessional and didn't know that O(n) == O(2n) etc and questioned me aggressively about the solution to the brainteaser even though it was a standard well-known brainteaser.

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

    Interview Details

    Lame. Recruiters were terrible and very unorganized. First a phone call, then a very simple group interview, then a final interview with a manager. It took about 4 weeks for BOA to get it together. Recruiters disappeared and I had to hunt them down to get my offer letter and start date. 90% of communication was done via email. Very impersonal, just like the company.
