You may be asked to participate in competency-based job interviews. The number of interviews may vary by role, country or line of business. Every situation differs, but you can expect interviews to be a mix of phone calls, in-person conversations, conference calls and/or video interviews.
While every interview we conduct introduces candidates to Bank of America’s products and services, history and mission, we’re always especially interested in a prospective teammate’s aspirations, character and values—and how they align with our own. You’ll engage in lively discussions with HR team members, business managers and possible peers. We’ll be looking to discern how you would fit our culture and help us deliver even better results for our clients.
We interview for competencies and may use competency-based exercises, assessments and screenings to measure key aptitudes, attributes and values that you will need. Interviewers will hone in on the appropriate competencies and ask applicable questions for the role.
Sample questions and scenarios posed to candidates:
- “As you know, businesses, the financial market and technology are changing faster than ever. Tell us how you keep up with changes in technology, the market or your field. And give us an example of something new you recently learned?”
- “Teams are often made up of people with perspectives and ideas different from your own. Tell us about a time when you worked on such a team? How did the differing perspectives lead to team success?”
