Preview to 5 Bank of America Merrill Lynch Interviews Below

1. Summer Analyst Interview

Process Description

First round on campus and 3 person superday. Pretty easy, know the division why your are interested your resume and come off as likeable in the interview. Standard finance vault questions. NOthing too tricky but first round was a 2 on 1 on campus which was suprising but was impressed about my industry interest. Good experience in general

Sample Interview Question at Bank of America Merrill Lynch:

Why is a big balance sheet important in SFO lending? Didnt know this one but know your rates and lending basics


2. Full time analyst Interview

Process Description

First was 1-3 interview with two analysts and one VP. They were all very nice and casual. The final round was 2 1-1 back to back with the group head. High level discussion and were interested in my future career goals.

Bank of America Merrill Lynch Sample Interview Question:

What do you aim to get out of this postion


3. Latin America Investment Banking Interview

Process Description

I applied through my university recruiting site. Then about a month later, during Winter Break, I was given a call on the day before Christmas at 9am PST. The person was calling from Spain, which was interesting for a Latin America position, but nevertheless, he called and left a message since I didn't answer the call. Then he called again, ten minutes after, and I answered and the conversation/interview began full fledged in Spanish. I was taken aback and felt unprepared but I think that was the point. I totally messed up and felt unprepared and he realized it. He asked about financial news, anything I new about BAML and their role in Latam, etc. (things I should have been looking at) and he also asked me to pitch a stock. I was a bit turned off but he was a really nice guy. At the end, he told me that I was an intelligent girl and basically needed to prepare for the interview (it was my first banking interview ever) and how to be ready with adequate Spanish vocabulary. After that, I did not hear from anyone for about two months. At this point, it is February and I was in Brazil studying abroad. I received an email from them about wanting to have more conversations.This time they were more scheduled about the interviews. My first one was with an Argentinian Associate living in NYC. He asked about why BAML, why LatAm, and only technicals were: how to value a company and how to get FCF and NPV. Then I was suppose to speak with a female analyst but she then told me she was too busy at the time so someone else would reach out. No one ever reached out so I figured it was over. Then about two weeks later, I am invited for the interview on site. I explained my study abroad situation and they said they could only pay up to $600 of my flight and since it was last minute, no way was that possible. Additionally, they didn't have virtual interviews available... They didn't seem to budge so I removed myself from the process...

Bank of America Merrill Lynch Interview Question Example:

How to Value a company?


4. Investment banking summer analyst Interview

Process Description

General behavioral questions Why BOA Basic accounting + technicals Nice and cool people Nothing unexpected

Sample Interview Question at Bank of America Merrill Lynch:

What are some of the credit risks of these companies (some familiar blue chip companies)? Could you talk about an IPO and what the IPO process is like?


5. Summer analyst Interview

Process Description

Applied online. Got the phone interview a couple days later, a bit of discussion about resume and the markets. Superday after that, 3 different candidates including me. Didn't get the offer.

Bank of America Merrill Lynch Interviews:

Walk me through your resume. Do you know what a fiduciary is? Do you know how that is different from mere discretionary management? What are thoughts on certain stories in the markets.
