Teller Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Bank of America in July 2014.
Interview Details – I had a long experience so I hope this helps someone!
I was originally contacted for a phone interview mid-May and during the phone interview I was scheduled for an interview with the banking center manager. I attended my interview no more than 3 days later and it was a typical one on one interview. She asked me a few questions, Tell me about yourself, Tell me about a situation where you fixed a problem for a customer, customer service questions. A few days later I was contacted by the background screening investigator but I missed the call on that Friday. I never returned the call because I was busy at work. The very next day I received an email saying I didn't get the job. The next Monday I got an email from my recruiter asking me to interview at a different location. I set that interview and finally spoke to the investigator and she said sometimes the recruiters pressure them to get them done quickly. All they needed was to confirm a year I started a previous job because I put in the wrong year.
So I interview at the other location; this is the beginning of June now. They needed two tellers so I was pretty confident I was going to get it. It was just two of the managers interviewing me. And my screening came back satisfactory.
Few days later I got the email saying I didn't get the job. I was sad but not giving up, so I emailed my recruiter letting her know I was still very interested in working with Bank of America.
A few weeks later, I received an email from her asking me to interview the next day. I went in for a one on one interview and it went great. It was the best interview I've ever had. She asked me customer service questions and questions about my previous managers. I also had to role play two scenarios. The first was she was making a deposit into her checking a and I had to convince her to open a savings. The second one she was wanting a bank statement for her sick brothers account but he was in the hospital. She didn't tell me their policies on this so I really had to wing it. If you have customer service experience just do your best, make eye contact and you'll do fine.
At the end of the interview she took me on a tour and introduced me to everyone working.
My interview was at 10 and I got the phone call saying they wanted to extend an offer around 5. I'm so excited and my best advice so anyone who truly wants to work for Bank of America, look at their careers page and get familiar with career paths and products and services, don't give up and really express to your recruiter so they know you're serious about working there. Good luck!

Public Finance Analyst Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Bank of America in October 2012.

Teller Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Bank of America in July 2014.
Interview Details – I applied for the job--and completed the thorough online assessment--about a month before I was actually contacted by anyone. I'd assumed I'd been dropped from consideration, but was shortly contacted for a phone interview and then, having done well, immediately referred to do an in-person interview. The first interview was expected to take 25 minutes, but took an hour--a good sign! I got a callback later that afternoon to do a second interview at a different location within the network. That interview was much more brief, and the manager let me know to expect an answer in about a week's time. However, I got the dreaded vague-rejection-email from the recruiter the very next morning. I'm not completely surprised by this: I got smacked with the word "overqualified" during the interview and expect that they chose someone who was less of a flight risk.
Interview Question – They got a prop out and had me simulate a sale of a new credit card with one of the assistant managers. View Answer

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Bank of America in July 2014.
Interview Details – After applying online, I was contacted within a few weeks by a recruiter. The first interview was a 25 minute phone interview which consisted of going over the job description, my resume, and past experiences. If successful, you are scheduled for a second interview in-person.
The in-person interview took about two hours. You are interviewed by two different managers. First, they put us in a room as a group and explained the job in more detail and asked if we had any questions. We were then sent off individually to be interviewed one-on-one with a manager. This interview took about 15-20 minutes and consisted of going over my resume, what would you do experiences, and why they should choose you over other candidates. We were then put in another conference room to wait for the second interview with the main manager. If you get the job, a recruiter contacts you within a few days afterwards with the acceptance offer.

QA Analyst Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a recruiter - interviewed at Bank of America in July 2014.
Interview Details – Got a phone interview with a recruiter. BOA manager was 25 minutes late in calling. Though he seemed OK with my technical background and this was a technical position, kept on pressing questions about my lack of financial and FOREX background. As far as my status goes, I never got a response from him even after 1 week later so I assumed no in-person interview.
Interview Question – Please let me know how you would catch up to speed on FOREX trading despite not having any professional experience with this. Answer Question
