    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Bank of America in May 2016.

    Interview

    Originally approached by hiring manager prior to any interview stages. Discussed current contracts and potential interest in working with Bank of America and declared an interest in moving to the next stages. Arranged a time a week or so later.

    Pretty straightforward on-site split into two stages. I was interviewing for a junior role so definitely wasn't expecting anything shocking although it's easy to get caught off guard.

    First section was a more personal run through, discussing motivations, general personality assessment questions like a time when you faced a challenge etc. School, College background, previous experiences. This portion was fairly light and both interviewers were relaxed and understanding, although I did encroach on a topic that almost raised an eyebrow and this was entirely my fault as I was driving the discussion. Important to remember not to talk about things you aren't fully sure of or are perhaps a little uncomfortable with.

    Second stage was a technical stage. Quite straight forward, covering a simple algorithm using pseudo-code and a slightly more complex problem around navigating a character through a Cartesian plane. Essentially a straight forward two dimensional array with some rules around types of movements and restrictions on boundary movements. Think Snake! Lead on to some theory based questions around RESTful APIs, HTTP and system design.

    Finally portion of the technical section was some fairly straightforward SQL questions covering types of joins, expected outcomes of using LEFT, INNER, FULL OUTER etc. Very straightforward and nothing that a little bit of homework on database queries won't help with.

    Overall, straightforward process and nothing too intensive.
