Technical Analyst Interview

Technical Analyst
Dallas, TX

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Bank of America.

Interview Details – I interviewed first over the phone with a technical staffing agency. I was then asked to come in for an interview with that technical staffing agency. I submitted a full application and had an interview with the recruiter. He just wanted to make sure I would be well suited for the position and also would not embarrass him by my appearance. The actual interview with BOA was easy.

Interview Question – I can not remember a specific hard question. The questions were not hard and mostly about what I had been doing and why I was applying for the job. He looked at my resume and then told me about the position.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I got the amount per hour I wanted, which was higher than what they were paying to others.

Interview Details – The recruiter asked general questions on my background. Then he asked me to talk about my projects in programming. Afterwards, he asks me several java OOD questions like explaining interface, inheritance, polymorphism. He also asked a few database questions like one-to-one, many-to-many relationships. Since I have done testing before, he asked me about the experience, and why testing is needed, and the test cycles.

I applied through college or university - interviewed at Bank of America in November 2011.

Interview Details – I had an on campus interview and after that I went to the insite interview. The night before my interview there was a cocktail reception to network. The next morning I had 5 interviews. In one of them I was given a scenario of a problem and had to solve that. There was a personal interview round with higher manager. All other interviews seemed easy.

Interview Question – Most difficult was the problem senario given but other that the technical questions were doable.   Answer Question

London, England (UK)

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

Interview Details – The firm was quite straightforward with motivation questions after the initial form and numerical and inductive tests. I applied close to their deadline, around middle of December and got invited to an assessment centre early January.

Assessment centre included group exercise ie role play, presentation prepared within 15-20 minutes, two or three on to one interviews focusing on motivation and technical questions.

Interview Question – The questions were quite straightforward. I made the mistake of not revising my technical knowledge before the interview.   Answer Question

Technical Analyst

The process took 2 days - interviewed at Bank of America in October 2009.

Interview Details – I was already working for the company and the interview was with a formal colleague of mine, so my interview process was a lot more informal. I met with the hiring manager (ex-colleague and friend) and his manager. We talked about my education and previous experience and I also took a skills test just to prove my knowledge to the hiring manager's manager. Very quick and to the point.

Negotiation Details – No negotiations, it was a lateral move.

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Bank of America in October 2010.

Interview Details – Got the initial interview call through university career service.
1st round: Took place on-campus. 1 : 1 interview. was asked behavioral questions and basics of c++ and sql questions. Interview Lasted for 30 minutes.
After 2 weeks I got an email for a phone interview which was in a couple of days of the email. I booked an appointment and the interview it lasted for about half an hour. It was a purely behavioral interview, question based on resume, projects and experiences.

Final Round: Was called to Charlotte for final round. Was put up at Hilton Charlotte City center, awesome hotel and a beautiful place.. Had cocktail dinner with BOA executives. Couldnt get to eat much. Grab this opportunity to talk to as many executives as possible and make your presence felt. Most of the executives attending the dinner will be the interviewers and a couple of them will be for your panel. We were split into 2 groups and few groups had morning interviews and few in the afternoon. There are 5 students in each group who will be interviewing with the same panel.
                             I was part of the morning group. We were taken to the breakfast followed by case study then 4 rounds of interviews.

Case Study: We were given a case on the order management system, the technicalities and difficulties associated with it. Were asked to suggest a new system which minimizes the disadvantages of the proposed system. We just had to write down our points for a 10 minute presentation which was to be given during on of your interview round. (My 1st round of interview had 2 people who asked me present my case study to them.) It was not very difficult and does need any back ground knowledge of the banking or core backing solutions. your general knowledge and common sense should help you deal with it.

4 rounds of interviews: There were mostly questions based on situations, leadership qualities, dealing with bad team mates, gaining others trust etc. I was also asked some basic technical questions on c++ concepts, SQL, SDLC models, sorting algorithms.
