    Easy Interview

    Application

    I interviewed at Bank of America (London, England (UK)) in November 2017.

    Interview

    After application straight to the Ac. AC is so long and I don't see the point of some of the tests.
    1. Make a presentation individual
    2. Group exercise
    3. 2x face to face technical interview
    4. Logical Reasoning test

    Standard java question; polymorphism, arrays, SQL. it was ridiculous that the interviewer doesn't know "limit" function on SQL so it kinda shows that the people is not experienced enough. I nodded politely and I have a feeling they already filled the spots but somehow still conducting a lot of AC at the same time which is wasting everyone's time. I'm pretty sure I nailed most of the technical question but somehow the feedback said that I'm lacking knowledge in SQL. Found out people I know that went got the exact same feedback :/ it might be just a default feedback and the they just ran out of excuses.

    Interview Questions

    • Polymorphism, OOP concept, SQL (super simple SELECT * stuff), if you have program in Java and C++ how do you connect it?   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Bank of America (London, England (UK)) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Chat with team, tech questions then on site interview.

    Recruitment seemed chaotic and disorganized. Constantly had to keep chasing HR team for feedback. Also was interviewed for a role I hadn't applied for. Job spec given didn't match the phone interview.

    When I was on site staff seemed cold,dull and uninspiring. Wasn't sure I really wanted to work there anyway.

    Treasury Compliance Officer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Bank of America (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    Interviewed with 2 of the relevant team. Nothing extraordinary. Asked for professional background and focus on relevant to the position skills. Lots of questions on that. My impression was that they were looking exclusively for previous experience in relevant roles. Although I had postgraduate studies and publications to cover the objective of the role, they almost ignored these. In the feedback they said that I was a very good candidate, but they hired someone with previous experience in this field. It was awkward, as I had initially applied for another position and their recruiter asked me to proceed with the particular application. Overall it was pleasant and simple the process
