I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Bank of America in October 2013.
Interview Details – A couple phone interviews to talk about myself and my background. The second was more in depth and asked me to describe the specifics on algorithms I'd written, etc. A few days later was invited for onsite in Charlotte, NC. Part of the onsite would include a group case presentation, and all information was distributed beforehand.
The onsite had 24 people and they split us into groups of 12. My half did interviews while the others did the case. 3 behavioral interviews, 2 technical. I thought all were very easy. The technicals were just a few simple brain teaser or probability questions, and then describing a subject you know. They asked for linear regression, which I don't really know, but I instead explained elementary machine learning, Markov chains, and some signal processing. I'd emphasize more on being able to explain the material vs. knowing it in and out.
Afternoon was the case competition. Our 12 was split into two groups and we had 2 hours to create a slide deck for a 20-30 minute presentation. Interviewers awkwardly wander around the room and watch you collaborate. For the presentation they bring a bunch of people into the room and are looking for you work with pressure. They also want to see how you react to tough questions when under the spotlight. Our group was very disorganized as the others wanted to work on all the details despite a tight time limit. Focusing only on the key parts would have been much better.

Reason for Declining – It wasn't exactly the position I wanted, I wasn't excited about Charlotte, and the entire experience didn't seem like the place for me.

I applied through college or university and interviewed at Bank of America.
Interview Details – First round was at my university. It consisted mainly of behavioral questions and I was asked just one question on a more technical aspect of data cleaning. The second round was much more challenging. An all day event at their head office in North Carolina. The most intimidating part were the technical questions which ranged from statistical brainteasers to graphing a curve.

Interviewed at Bank of America
Interview Details – Campus interview first then second round was in Charlotte.
Accommodation was not bad but the interviews on the second day was ridiculous.

Others were relatively nice.
There was a case study in the afternoon which I didn't prepare well. Guess I failed on that.
