    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.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Bank of America.

    Interview Details

    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.

    The interview process and questions varies from team and team. The team I joined comprised of very technical people and the quality of interview questions was very good. All the questions were scenario based and not about remembering some API. Though I was asked to write code.

    3. Talked to and was interviewed by both hiring managers from both departments.
    4. Both departments wanted to hire me, so I was given the option to choose either one.
    5. I chose one of them and a formal offer and other documentation were sent through email.
    6. Arrive back in Singapore and start on the agreed first day of work.
