    The entire process took roughly one month. First, you receive a call from a corporate recruiter down in the states. If they are satisfied, then you will be asked for a first round interview with two managers/VPs (individually). If you pass the second round, then you will be asked to go back for a second round interview with a senior VP down in the states through video conference. If he/she likes you then you get the offer through phone usually by the next day.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Bank of America (Toronto, ON) in February 2014.

    Interview

    I applied through the campus employment website.
    Received a call from the HR a week later informing me that I was selected for an interview. I asked about the dress code at Bank of America. The HR person said it is business professional. When I went to the interview, I noticed everyone was in business casual. I guess HR and IT has different dress code.
    The interview was with a panel of 2 people, both are software developers. The interview consists of mostly technical questions (nothing on behaviour questions like tell me about a time when you solve a problem, etc.) about programming, data structures. The interview lasted for about 50mins.
    I finished the interview on Friday and received my offer via phone call and email on Monday.

    Interview Questions

    • I mentioned in my cover letter that I strive to write clean and efficient code. So I was asked how exactly to do that.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    The pay was below average for computer science major. I tried to negotiate for a higher pay but was told the pay was based on experience and was competitive. Hence I declined.

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Bank of America (Toronto, ON) in October 2013.

    Interview

    The interviewer was generous and friendly. He gave an intro about his company and what kind of work they do on a daily basis. He asked questions on my previous projects and some questions regarding my current courses that are taken. Expect to see some Python and Unix (bash) questions as they primarily use Python to do their code work. Some departments may use different language like Java and C++, but my department used primarily Python.
