    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Bank of America.

    Interview

    Process was quite good, made you do the online tests before answering the questions which I prefer. Interview took about 30 minutes and was nothing really technical, more competency based.

    Intern Interview

    Interview

    Firstly you must fill in the online application and then you will be sent numerical tests

    After this the only other round was an assessment centre:
    - Individual presentation - very hard!
    - Two interviews
    - Group exercise - prepare for lots of grilling questions!
    - Numerical test - online practice is useless, as this is very different and is much harder

    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    Introduced by a job agency. I started with the direct interviews (I was informed there would be around 3 rounds of interviews, but I just did the first one and haven't got the feedback yet). The first interview was completely technical - sorry details of the questions couldn't be provided as I've promised the interviewers. However they were about calculus, probablility, stocastic differenctial equation (mainly about the BS model), modelling (didn't have to be a specific language) and related finance. They started from an easy question in each aspect and increased the difficulties as you progressed, but hints would be provided friendly.

    Whole process was 1hour + 15 mins of the questions for the interviewers.

    Very friendly discussions throughout the interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Can't provide details, but some questions might take a while to solve if you are weak in any aspect (maths, modelling, finance), but as mentioned, they provide friendly hints.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Bank of America.

    Interview

    Had initial application with logical reasoning test which was easy. Then got through to the assessment center where the day was structured:
    1) Case study with presentation to one person
    2) Case study group exercise
    3) Technical interview with my chosen language. Basic CS fundamentals, if you do a CS degree then this should be a breeze.
    4) Standard interview. Normal questions.

    Most of my interviewers were lovely and our guides through the day were great. Really ended up enjoying it and felt very relaxed throughout.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing particularly hard. Perhaps describe a situation I was a team leader and had something go wrong   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Bank of America.

    Interview

    Applied online, straightforward application. Had a couple of online tests, numerical reasoning, logical reasoning, fairly standard. Got fast tracked to the assessment centre so bypassed the phone interviews and in person interviews.

    At the assessment centre:
    - had to solve a timed technical case study and do a short presentation
    - had to solve another case study in a group and do a slightly longer presentation
    - short technical interview (Java, data structures, etc)
    - short competency interview (working in groups, difficult scenarios)

    Received a response in 2 working days, very impressed by that.

    Interview Questions

    • Name a few methods present in all Java util classes.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    No negotiation involved as it was a summer analyst/intern role.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    interviewed at Bank of America (London, England (UK)) in December 2014.

    Interview

    Lengthy online application form, Online Tests - numerical tests done and then immediately logical tests. Received no phone interviews afterwards. Despite better than average performance on online assessments. Suggestion: better do not apply for UK offices if you are not local/ if you hold other passports/ if you are not from Oxbridge/LSE. Save your time and effort for school exams or other worthy causes.
