    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Bank of America in May 2010.

    Interview Details

    I am a contractor on an H-1B visa. I got this assignment through a consulting company who acts as a sub- to another company who acts as a sub- to the main vendor (Cap Gemini) to BoA. My employer found e from Dice. There were the usual tech interviews (on phone) at each level that lasted about 20 minutes each. I met in person with my direct employer's recruiter in new Jersey. I never met anyone from BoA in person till I started working.

    Interview Questions
    • What did you do when you were out of work for 8 months?   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    Tough. The market is very competitive, especially for H-1B holders. I am getting the same hourly rate working in NYC that I was getting in NJ two years back. So two more hours spent in commuting but no equivalent increase in pay.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Bank of America in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    The interviewer was generous and friendly. He gave an intro about his company and what kind of work they do on a daily basis. He asked questions on my previous projects and some questions regarding my current courses that are taken. Expect to see some Python and Unix (bash) questions as they primarily use Python to do their code work. Some departments may use different language like Java and C++, but my department used primarily Python.
