Preview to 5 Bank of America Merrill Lynch Interviews Below

1. Global Research Analyst Interview

Process Description

First I did a 30 minute phone screen with someone in the macro research group. I was then called in for a superday by HR. I interviewed with 3 equity research people, 1 credit research person and 1 macro research person. I was asked for 2 stock pitches total. A lot of fit questions. Know your resume and why you want to do research. I was also asked a few questions on accounting.

Bank of America Merrill Lynch Interviews:

Pitch a short. Usually they only ask for longs. Make sure you have a short idea prepared as a back up.


2. levfin investment banking Interview

Process Description

Networked with associate at on campus networking event. Submitted app online and reached out to associate who pushed resume. Got a hirevue the next day, followed by 2 phone screens and was flown out for super day by the end of the week.

Bank of America Merrill Lynch Sample Interview Question:

Study the guides and you'll be fine. 3 financial statements? Valuation methodologies? Walk me through a recent deal we worked on? Who is our CEO? Interesting fact about our firm?


3. Debt Capital Markets Summer Analyst Interview

Process Description

Application through the Ivey Business School career site. Contacted by email about the interview. Was given about a week notice to prepare for the interview. Interview was with the associate in the DCM group. Seemed to be a very non-social culture, very quiet office, cold secretary.

Sample Interview Question at Bank of America Merrill Lynch:

How does the US economy affect Canadian bonds? stocks? interest rates? Given this, why have bonds been doing well in the past year?


4. Investment Banking Summer Analyst Interview

Process Description

I emailed a person at BAML that had a similar background to mine (not an alumni, however). We scheduled a call and it went very well, a week later the employee reached out to me and asked if i'd like to be considered for their SA program. Eagerly, I said yes! Later i received and email from BAML HR that I have been referred. I filled out my application and got an email from an associate to schedule a call. The call went well and it was all about my background, I didnt get asked one technical. This was my first interview so I was kind of nervous and didnt know what to expect. My advice is to be yourself, be calm and know why IBD and why BAML. Have good stories how you work in a team etc. I was asked a lot of behavioral questions from the WSO guise.

Bank of America Merrill Lynch Interviews:

Walk me through your resume


5. Summer IBD Analyst Interview

Process Description

First Round: Video Interview. Standard behavioral but some were a bit more out of the blue (I.e. name a time when you improved a process etc) only get 30 secs to formulate response and one response per question. Superday: 3 interviews. 1 on 1 w MD. Mostly behavioral and questions about my Fund at school. 1 on 1 w Director. Very basic technicals in the beginning “What is WACC.” then on to very basic resume behaviorals. 2 on 1 w MD and associate. All resume behavioral. Very easy

Bank of America Merrill Lynch Interview Question Example:

“What do sponsors look for in valuing a company?” “What metrics do bankers look at when valuing a company, looking for a potential deal” “What would be your group preference if given an offer” “W
