    Treasury Compliance Officer Interview

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

    Interview

    Assessment Day

    - Numerical Test Verification - Be prepared to know your basic maths and to use stationary you may not be used to in terms of their calculators. Very basic and different to GDCs.

    - Interview #1 - This one is usually a competency based round

    - Individual presentation - Case study on which you need to read, assess, and make a presentation for. To shine here know about policies the company uses from a day-to-day basis and put them into action in your presentation

    - Group Presentation - Do not dominate but try and speak first to organise the structure of the tasks, they love the communication and clarity from that.

    - Interview #2 - CV walk through and a lot of; 'tell me about a time where you ..." type questions

    Scala Developer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Bank of America (London, England (UK)) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Pretty quick: one phone call, approximately 40 minutes, then a 3-hour in-house interview (3 parts: due diligence, technical task, behavioral questions), then rate negotiations.

    The due diligence part was the usual Java and Scala drill; APIs, design decisions, FP vs OOP, etc.

    The technical task was down-to-Earth one, you start with some codebase and tell what would you do with it; from there, you can start a discussion on design approaches, the decisions made in the code, the decisions not yet made, the decisions you are going to make, etc.

    The behavioral questions were as usual: why do you want to work here, how would your colleagues describe you, and so on.

    Analyst Interview

    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.
