    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Bank of America (Charlotte, NC).

    Interview

    The interview process highly depends on the team/function you apply for, although the titles are quite similar. I had 2 phone screening and 1 onsite interview. And I had lunch with the team lead. The onsite had 2 technical interviews, each for 1 hour. Then I talked with two managers, each for half an hour.

    Communications Manager Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Bank of America.

    Interview

    About one month after applying online, an in-house recruiter reached out via email to schedule a phone screen.

    The phone screen was straightforward with technical questions and interest in the position. The recruiter - both via email and on the phone - seemed very rushed every time I spoke or interacted with him. He was never rude, but it made me feel like I couldn't ask many questions.

    At the end of the call, he scheduled my interview with the hiring manager for the next week, and asked me to submit writing samples. He indicated they had an aggressive hiring timeline.

    Because the hiring manager was located in another city, our interview was by phone. It was a pleasant conversation where she spoke a lot about the position (a newly created role), the team and her leadership style. It was a relaxed interview that was much more conversational than a Q&A.

    Although the hiring manager gave very detailed next steps (down to who the next interview was with, exactly when they wanted to make an offer by, etc.), I did not hear back within the identified time frame. When I reached out to her and the recruiter to follow up (after I had already sent a thank you), I never received an answer - not even an acknowledgment of my email. I never received an automated email either indicating I was no longer in consideration.

    So while the front-half of the process was great, the second-half was rather lacking.

    Interview

    Phone interview for Java Developer position. My resume was submitted by a friend of mine at the firm. One phone and one onsite interview.

    The recruiter took ages to close the deal. Definitely not worth working for them.

    Managerial Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    I found the entire experience with BofA to be extremely unprofessional and very inconsiderate of my time. They called very last minute to bring me in for two different job interviews. In both cases they called in the afternoon one day and wanted me to come in the very next morning and tried to make it seem urgent. Then they even called the day of one of the interviews (as I was already on my way into the city for the interview!) to see if I could make it in an hour earlier?? I guess they expected me to magically appear at their office within the hour.
    After the interviews they never got back to me. I thought the interviews went well but I understand that they may have had another candidate they preferred. However, they were only interviewing a few people for the position so I don't think it's too much to expect them to get back to you either way. They even have a web site where they can just post your status update and they couldn't even be bothered to do that. And good luck getting the recruiting person to respond to anything. The recruiting person was completely unresponsive.

    Now for the actual interview.... they had some employees interviewing candidates that had no business whatsoever doing the interviewing....they asked ridiculously insignificant questions, which just showed that their focus was completely on the wrong things. They couldn't seem to see the bigger picture of the roles and were focused on very insignificant and minute details that just didn't matter. For one of the interviews the hiring manager didn't even show up (they had 2 lower level employees interview me) . They said the hiring mgr was out that day, which makes me question why they'd schedule an interview on a day he wasn't even at work. I walked out of the interviews and thought they were a waste of my time. Good candidates would be turned off by these interviewers.
    I also got the sense that they didn't really have open positions. I felt like they already had internal candidates selected for these roles and wasted my time because they had to pretend to consider other candidates.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Bank of America (Arcadia, CA) in July 2017.

    Interview

    At first a recruiter called to discuss about the position and salary with me. He asked when will be my availability to come in for a face-to-face interview with the branch manager. I took the opportunity and was scheduled to do it the next day. I came in 15 mins ealier to give a great impression. The interview was easy as long as you prepared for it. Also, it was very chill and I got to laugh with both of the interviewers. They asked about my schedule and If I am also willing to work on the weekends. I am now just waiting for them to give me a call to see if I got the job.

    PS: Always answer all the questions with positivity. no matter how much you hated your previous jobs, just always stay positive with your answers.
