Interview

Phone interview for Java Developer position. My resume was submitted by a friend of mine at the firm. One phone and one onsite interview.

The recruiter took ages to close the deal. Definitely not worth working for them.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Bank of America (Jersey City, NJ) in May 2016.

    Interview

    He started with multithreading issues. i told him race condition, deadlocks, dirty reads if not properly synchronized etc. he kept saying i am missing another. i told him i can't guess what is in his mind. i got irritated and asked him tell me what is my favorite color. he still didn't get it nor gave me a clue on what he was expecting. i wish he had said this is the issue we faced, how would you have corrected it etc. instead it was like 'tell me four principles of computer programming'. seriously?

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Bank of America.

    Interview

    Very difficult to get an interview as they have many layers in Human Resources. Started with phone interview and then if accepted invited to an in-person interview. Interviews were conducted by the manager and direct reports and consisted of a variety of technical questions. No employment tests were required. The process moved along quickly after initial interviews.

    Interview Questions

    • Depended on the individual asking the questions, but some questions were related to the job requirements and some were in left field, but I did get the job.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    A call from Human Resources presenting the salary, vacation time, job title and start date. I accepted the offer based on the conversation.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I interviewed at Bank of America in February 2014.

    Interview

    phone call from multiple developers/managers. Very poor indian english with questions that are not related to the position. They wont tell you what they are looking for and how you feel about the position. It took them about an hour to interview me and I had the feeling that they were looking for something I dont know. Finally they found Linq after telling them that I have no linq experience they still kept asking 5-6 questions about linq. Very poor interviewing skills.
