Vice President
New York, NY

I applied through a recruiter and interviewed at Bank of America.

Interview Details – I was referred by someone I knew in HR. I met with the hiring manager and the head of the group for 30 min interviews each. It felt pretty informal and was more of a 'get to know each other' conversation. I went back to meet with two peers in the group and was given an offer shortly after. This was ML in 2007, I imagine BoA may have changed it.

Negotiation Details – It doesn't hurt to ask (within reason).
