Branch Manager Interview

Branch Manager
Chicago, IL (US)

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Bank of America in January 2014.

Interview Details The actual hiring and recruiting is quite long and thorough, which was fine because I held another employment during this initial phase. But once the recruiter phoned me for a phone interview, and eventually a face to face interview, things went very quickly.

Branch Manager Interview

Branch Manager
Philadelphia, PA (US)

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Bank of America in April 2012.

Interview Details Applied online, a week later I was sent a personality assesment. After another week, I received an e-mail from a recruiter saying I passed the first assessmet and I needed to take the 2nd assessment, which was a video simulation. There are 5 senerios. I took the test a year ago and didn't pass. This time I passed. I have no idea what the answers are or what they were looking for. After another week I just received a phone call from a recruiter and we just casualy talked. She did ask why I left my other job. She then set up a phone interview for tomorrow with another recruiter. She said it would take about an hour. This is all I can report...

Interview Question – Why did you leave your last job?   Answer Question

Branch Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Bank of America in March 2009.

Interview Details recruiter(s) were both very friendly and professional. first recruiter just confirmed what I was applying for. Next recruiter emailed an application of which you must have everything exactly correct (dates, position titles bought /sold homes from 10 years ago) or system will automatically throw your app out and you cannot apply again for nine months. (a little extreme)

Interview Questions

Reason for Declining – salary package was about the same compensation in CA as in TX....with the cost of living in CA so high...was not worth it.

Branch Manager Interview

Branch Manager

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4 days - interviewed at Bank of America in October 2009.

Interview Details She interviewed me on the phone and decided I was a good candidate, and then had me take a personality test. Evidently I failed it, because I never heard from her again. My understanding is that the next step would have been a face-to-face interview. In my job, I am glad we do not use such things as personality tests. They too often don't take into account that sometimes what is needed is a fresh perspective. But B of A is huge, and as with most animals, it has gotten too big in order to sustain its own mass. I hope somebody truly intelligent up there reads this and realizes that making a personality test a PART of the process is a good idea, but making it the end-all, be-all is a very, very BAD idea.
