    Interview

    Group exercise The hiring process at BofA has changed in recent years since the acquisition of Merrill Lynch. Bank of America accepts applicants from a variety of degree backgrounds, however applicants to Technology should come from a Computer Science, Mathematics, Physics, or Engineering background, and mathematical, technical and business skills are highly valued for other roles. Most analyst positions require a 2:1 degree classification. Relevant work experience and foreign languages are also an advantage.

    Industrial Attachment - Ops Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Singapore (Singapore)
    Accepted Offer

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Bank of America (Singapore (Singapore)).

    Interview

    First round was a HR interview, it was simple, mainly questions about yourself like your greatest achievement. Second round was the assessment centre and it consisted of a group round, a short presentation and finally an interview with 2 employees. The group round was fun, it was a team of 5 others and myself trying to piece together a lego structure with only 3 chances of viewing for 10 seconds per chance and then communicating it to the group to piece it altogether. The presentation was fairly easy for me as well something to do with how can a company retain staff. Then last round was an interview with 2 other employees which was okay, the questions posed were mainly behavioural, competency based.
