    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Bank of America (Charlotte, NC) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I received my interview through my Universities career center website. The night before the interview - BOA held a pre interview dinner with a bunch of employees. This was very helpful because everyone got to meet members of the team and ask questions before the interview. The interview was only 30 minutes and entirely behavioral. They were really looking for the candidates potential fit within BOA. The second round interview was multiples interviews with different managers. This round they asked basic finance and accounting technical questions.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a current event that is impacting BOA and why?   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Bank of America (Gainesville, FL) in October 2015.

    Interview

    The first round interview consisted mainly of behavioral and fit questions. It was more of a conversation than an interview to be frank. Before I met with the interviewer, I got a chance to talk with him and some current FMAP employees at a small gathering the night before. Everyone was very nice and easy to talk to. If I made it to the next round, I would have been flown to Charlotte, NC for a super day.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Bank of America (Raleigh, NC) in October 2015.

    Interview

    The interview was actually rather short, only 15 minutes. The interviewer gave me a bit of background on the position, asked why I wanted it, and then we briefly discussed my resume. A physics problem was asked (see Interview Questions) and then it was opened up to my questions. The impression I got was that this was a screen more than a full interview.

    Interview Questions

    • You're in a car driving on a circular 1 mile long track. You drive at 30 mph for the first lap. How fast do you have to go on the second lap to average 60 mph over the entire 2 laps?   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Bank of America (New York, NY) in February 2015.

    Interview

    2 half hour, back-to-back interviews that were 100% behavioral given by two friendly individuals that kept things relaxed throughout. Questions included: give me an example of when you've delegated, why this position, describe a difficult situation that you've been in, describe a difficult decision you've had to make, and they expected you to have questions ready to ask them. They were willing to do the interview virtually which was nice of them.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe a time you used market research to make a decision.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Bank of America (Charlotte, NC) in October 2013.

    Interview

    Application - September: Applied through campus job posting portal.
    On-campus Interview - October: 30-minute interview focusing on both behavioral (e.g. tell me about yourself, why BoA, why QMAP) and technical (e.g. project technical details, brain teaser, solve a problem) perspectives. There was a reception / meet and greet the night before the interviews to meet potential interviewers and current QMAP members. The results were out in 2 days.
    Final-round Interview - October: The final day consists of a half day of group case presentation and another half day of 4 interviews (2 behavioral + 2 technical). All candidates were given a week to work on a HBS case and to turn in some preliminary analyses prior to the interview. On the interview day, candidates were assigned into random groups of approximately 6 and were required to discuss and put together a case presentation in 2 hours, followed by 15-minute presentation and 15-minute Q&A (Be prepared to answer questions anytime during the presentation). The behavioral and technical interviews were relatively less quant-oriented comparing to that of other companies. Just know your resume / experience really well and carry on casual conversations with the interviewers. Again, there was a reception the night before to meet more QMAP members in the Charlotte office and other individuals from groups that accept QMAP members. I heard back from the bank regarding the result in 2 business days.

    Interview Questions

    • How do you explain market liquidity to a 7-year old? What do you think it takes to be successful in an organization?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Not negotiable. In fact, pretty much all leadership/specialized programs are not negotiable across firms in the banking industry.
