    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Bank of America in November 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process was fairly straightforward. The interviews were manageable for the most part, while some were difficult. The team I met with was knowledgable and professional, but I imagine some of the other candidates were more qualified than I was.
