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.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed 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 Questions

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed 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.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Bank of America.

    Interview Details

    I applied for internship position at one of the career fairs at my college. I got an interview call after 10 days. The interview was a mix of behavioral and technical. There were two interviewers: one looks experienced and other guy looks like a junior guy shadowing the senior interviewer. They asked me about my previous work experience and my interests in my graduate program. Then, they gave me a scenario and asked to design database and write pseudo code for the accessor methods. The senior guy kept me engaged by adding more specs to what I was designing. This part is only for 15 mins. In the later part they asked easier questions like recursive Fibonacci, recursive GCD. After 10 days, they gave an offer.

    Interview Questions
    • The interview is easy. They look at candidate's understanding of various languages and ability to code basics in several languages.   Answer Question
