Easy Interview

Mortgage Loan Officer Interview

Mortgage Loan Officer
Dallas, TX

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Bank of America in June 2010.

Interview Details – Pretty Easy.......initial conversation with HR, two face to face interviews with two different managers. Standard questions in each and nothing unusual in either interview. Both asked comparable questions, most likely they compared answers so as long as you explained your history and background and why they should hire you for the position you would most likely pass each one.

Interview Question – Noting out of the ordinary!   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – With HR over the phone not in person, a little room to negotiate income but not much.

Banking Center Manager Interview

Banking Center Manager

I applied online and interviewed at Bank of America.

Interview Details – From reading other people's experience mine was very unique. I am a veteran from the military as well so that may be the reason why. Here is my experience. I applied online and was contacted by a military veteran recruiter via email. I was sent links to conduct 2 different scenario based simulations. From there I was conducted again via email by the same recruiter. I had a telephone interview first. I then was scheduled a phone interview with the area manager and after that the final interview was with the area executive. Each interview was one on one and via telephone. I was finally contacted and offered the position.

Interview Question – My biggest advice is to ensure that discuss how you are able to coach and lead teams successfully. Ensure you are customer focused and able to relate real life experiences. Sales experience is huge, even if you do not have retail sales, there are other areas that people gain selling experience that can relate - like pitching new ideas.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was really no negotiation, they offered exactly what I was looking for.

Vice President/Retirement Services Interview

Vice President/Retirement Services

I applied through other source and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Bank of America in May 2010.

Interview Details – I had a phone interview with HR first , and who walked me through the entire process, she was EXCELLENT as she gave me background information on the people and what they were looking for. Then had a phone interview and after that I was flown in to do a day of interviews, approximately 4 people and then a panel interview.

Interview Question – Nothing outside the box - a few situational, but mostly looking to hear about your experience and learn about your work style   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Having worked here, ASK for the SALARY range, as they don't post salaries and REFUSE to provide. Ask about salary increases, do they give them and the process. Worked here 4 years and never had a salary increase and can't get anyone to tell me the salary range, even went to the DOL and they told me that the Bank doesn't have to provide salary ranges to their employees.
