Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Bank of America.

Interview

Single HR phone interview with subsequent hiring manager interview. HR contacted me based on a prior application for a different job. Focus was on a "walk-through" of the resume in interviews with HR, hiring manager's executive and hiring manager's colleague. Last interview with hiring manager focused more on technical skills important to the hiring manager.

Interview Questions

Negotiation

Not open to negotiation.

    Application

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

    Interview

    More behavioral than anything else. Wanted to get a sense of having somewhat of a quantitative background (either academic or professional) but otherwise it was behavioral. They preferred people with a risk and p&l background which I had so that aligned well.

    Interview Questions

    • Can you talk about large US banks' debt footprints since 2008?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Not willing to negotiate much on base salary. Got additional $5K through negotiations.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Bank of America (New York, NY).

    Interview

    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

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