    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Bank of America.

    Interview Details

    On campus interview then final round in Charlotte. They put us in a nice hotel and fed us very well. The hotel was on the CLT BAC campus (Uptown) and consisted of ~4 or 5 interviews. The questions were mostly standard STAR (situational) questions. They were all pretty nice and not out to make you feel stupid.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing different, mostly common situational interview questions   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Since it was a rotational program, there wasn't a lot of room to negotiate.

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Bank of America.

    Interview Details

    Had one face to face interview. The process was easy. I interviewed with the Underwriting Manager. She came from Florida. The questions were average. It was a fun interview. I was already an employee with the bank so I was a little familiar with the manager already.

    Registered Client Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Bank of America.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed twice over the phone with office management (two managers). Then interviewed once with two financial advisors over the phone. Invited for an in-person interview where the two managers interviewed me, then two financial advisors. The in-person process lasted about 4 hours. The advisors especially are not trained as managers, so the interview is definitely more conversational and they ask questions in terms of how you would add value to their personal book of business.

    Interview Questions
    • How would you deal with a boss/financial advisor with a difficult personality (when you are working for more than one)?   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiating. I would say you should negotiate for more pay as much as possible, because Merrill Lynch wants to pay you as little as possible as Client Associates are not technically revenue generators. They do not pay according to the demand of the job (very) or cost of living. Negotiate especially if Registered (Series 7 and 66).

    Personal Banker Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Bank of America.

    Interview Details

    Thy ar fairly quick about reaching out to set up interviews. First they will do a phone interview with the recruiter to determine of you meet the basic qualifications. If you do, then they'll send you to a group panel interview with area managers as well as branch manager (usually 4-5 total). This panel interview is where you need to make yourself stand out. Share your successes, how you've exceeded expectations and your general business acumen. They are looking for strong sales people, banking experience helps, but as long as you can sell, they will teach you the banking part. Also I've prepared to ask them questions because that always helps. After the panel interview you may go to individual branch managers for one on one interview before an offer is made. The recruiter will call you and let you know.

    Straight forward, just need prior experience. Manager are always recruiting and are willing to give you a chance. Mostly done over the phone and not in person. Thats really about all there is to it. Relaxed and be prepared with documentation to prove your production or a 5-year plan

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a weekinterviewed at Bank of America.

    Interview Details

    Hired through a temporary agency and they handled the interview, drug testing and background check, there was no interview process with the bank and the agency advised of the starting salary, no negotiation. Bank of America was totally hands off during the entire hiring process. When permanently onboarded was only advised of specific hire date and salary through the HR department off site. No HR was handled at the location I worked.

    Negotiation Details
    There was no real negotiating. You took the offer or kept moving. They are of the mind there are enough candidates out there and that mindset permeates the entire experience.
