    Comp Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Bank of America (New York, NY) in May 2010.

    Interview

    All behavioral. Interviewed on the phone with Charlotte team, met with 3 different individuals in New York. It's hard when half the people work from home and want to interview you outside the office, because you don't get to see their working environment. Comp is a part of HR, but it's technical, it's all salary data control. I think they hired someone internal. Very hard to read personalities, even if you think you've connected with them, they don't care.

    Paralegal Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Bank of America (Charlotte, NC) in June 2010.

    Interview

    Talked to two managers and one peer, got offer next day...not much structure, same questions asked by each person. Purely designed to assess personality traits. Very cursory discussion...if I didn't need the job I would have passed. There is obviously no structure or consistency in their hiring process. Either they like you or they don't.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    zero negotiation

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Bank of America (Charlotte, NC) in January 2014.

    Interview

    Interviewed with and through a staffing agency for Bank of America, and hired in a revolving-door team of attorneys for an on-going project. I soon understood why the Bank had difficulty in retaining people to work on the project. The actual documents and the bank system were easily mastered, but the inflexible management would not allow promotion or opportunity to do extra work in order to advance.

    Interview Questions

    • How would you accept a low salary in exchange for the experience of working at Bank of America?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation involved as the Bank would not raise the salary, adjust the daily hours to allow more than 8 hours per day or allow weekend work. This was a take-it-ot-leave-it offer.
