Senior Financial Analyst Interview

Senior Financial Analyst
New York, NY

I applied online and the process took 4 months - interviewed at Bank of America in January 2013.

Interview Details – I applied for this position online.

After three months, I was contacted by the HR for a phone screening round.

And after a week I was called in for a in-person interview.

I had two rounds of interviews on the same day, first was with the Manger and the second was with an Associate. The questions were very basic and the people were very nice.

The third round of interview was over the telephone with the VP located in HQ. Some of the technical questions asked were tough.

Interview Question – I was asked 4-6 journal entries in the third round. Starting from easy to difficult.   Answer Question
