    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chester, England
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chester, England
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Bank of America in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Contact was through an agency. Interview was based in Chester office UK, to which I had to get a flight. I was told I would be interviewed by one person for two different roles, but when I arrived this person was unavailable and the interviewers who saw me in his place did not know what roles I was being interviewed for, I found this very offputting.

    Interview Questions
    • I was told my interview would be competency based but only got asked 2 competency based questions and A LOT of product knowledge questions. Eg. If I hold 100 shares of X equity short and the price drops what would I do?   View Answer
