Equity Linked Technology(ELT) Intern Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Toronto, ON

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Bank of America in February 2014.

Interview Details 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 Question – 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

Reason 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.

Software Engineer Interview

Software Engineer
Toronto, ON

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Bank of America in October 2013.

Interview Details 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.

Modification Underwriter Interview

Anonymous Employee
Charlotte, NC (US)

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Bank of America in January 2011.

Interview Details The hiring process first takes place by a Job placement agency. It follows with the BOA manager you will be working with.
It’s not a bad experience--relatively simple. It’s what you would expect from an interview. For the most part know your resume well and be prepared to explain your experience.

Interview Question – BOA has many issues with the employer employee relations however the hiring is not one of them.
Just be aware that it is all about production. You will be a little robot. It works for some and not for others.
But to save yourself the horrors of being in a bad fit job situation Please note that you will be a robot at your desk.
  Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation, they gave me what I asked for.
