    Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Bank of America (London, England (UK)) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Assessment Centre where I had to do 3 interviews, a solo presentation (10 minute presentation then 10 minutes of questions) and a numerical test. The interviews were competency, motivational then technical and the latter was by far the most challenging because I had to think on the spot and they asked questions about aspects of the division which I didn't know about.
