I took over a small business my sister had started because she wanted to pursue something else in her field, but we never did any formal paperwork to show that I managed/owned the whole business after she left and everything was still under her name, and then we decided to close it 7months later. Under work experience for the BofA application I put that I was the owner for that small business. Now would they look into that and say I wasn't technically the owner and was lying and not hire me...or would they not really go that far into it? If anyone has any info please help...

Hi, I recently decided to apply for a teller position for one of the branch in my area. After spending a lot of time on the forums gathering all source of information regarding this whole process, I finally got the job and today was my first day of training in the branch. So I thought I should put together a guide that can somewhat show the people that wants to apply for this position an idea of how the hiring process goes.
1/ First thing I did is search for a BofA teller position on this website and apply
2/ About 3 days after I submitted my application, a Recruiter called me on my cell phone and did a screening over the phone. What this is is basically they tell you what they expect of you for this position (wages, work hours..etc), they also ask why do you want to work in this field and so on. It is very easy.
3/ After the Screening, you will get an email contain a link to an Assessment Test. This is basically a customer service test where they ask a bunch of situational questions and you pick: strongly agree, agree, disagree...etc stuff like that. To me it was very easy to pass, but my recruiter said about 60% of the applicant fail it. If you fail it, you cannot proceed with the application. So make you take the time to do it. If you pass the test, it will hold on your file for 2 years, so you don't have to take it again.
4/ After you passed the assessment test, you will get another email containing all the information to a Group Interview usually withing 2-3 days. The size of your group interview varies. I had a big group 22 people. The interview lasts a little over 3.5 hours. The recruiter will bring the group to a big room. Then you will watch a video about BofA. Then he will have you fill our a form regarding your work schedule and locations desired. You must bring a copy of your resume with you to the interview because you will turn it in. Also you must bring those authorization forms that they sent you in the email filled out.

Someone mentioned that BOFA has onsite Daycare facilities at some of there call center locations. I want to know if the Call Center in Kennesaw, GA has one...if not, does BofA offer any subsidy for an outside daycare center?

I recently was hired as a customer service representative at Bank Of America in the call center. Can anyone employed in the call center shed some light on specifics regarding the job? How is the call flow, is it a fairly easy job, what is the most challenging part of the job, etc. Thanks in advance!

While I was going through the hiring process, I became nervous reading these forums and thought I wasn't going to get the job. So now that I do officially have my start date confirmed after my I-9 and background as well as my asi complete, I want to help those who are nervous, just like I was. My first group interview, I was not hired but I contacted my recruiter and told her I was still interested in working for the company and she set me up with an interview with a different branch. He liked me immediately cause I researched a little bit about the bank. Make sure you smile be friendly and smile some more. I completed the asi and put in detail why I left a job. Then a few days later I got a call from someone wanting to verify the info before the submit or for investigation. Few says pass, my recruiter called me with an offer contingent of a successful background and fingerprint and I-9. You must be honest in everything or you will not be hired. I was charged 5years ago for petty theft and put that in my background check, even though I was not convicted, remember, honesty is key. The next day, someone called me asking me questions about the charge and after that, that's when I got scared and started reading these forums. Man I thought I had put my foot in my mouth and causes myself to not get hired. I was on forums for hours and hours for about a week. It took two weeks to finally receive confirmation that everything is good and I can start August 18. Please feel free to ask me anything.

Is there anyone who expunged their theft related charges (dishonesty, theft, shoplifting etc) and have eventually been hired by BofA? I don't really see many cases like those being discussed here. On this forum I see very vague references to someone being hired in spite of some arrests, but I don't see many details. I'm really in a state of confusion now. Can those people who have been hired, despite any charges that they may have had in the past, please come forward and post your experiences?
Likewise, if there's anyone who had failed the background check because of previous theft (dishonesty) related charges also post your experience with the corp security. Thank you!

At what stage do applicants fill out the ASI?
Is it after they receive an offer?
On the form, do you have the opportunity to disclose criminal convictions? Or do you just list your full name, aliases, past addresses, etc.?
I'm hoping to have the opportunity to disclose a DUI while filling out the form? Can I do this at that time?

I applied and have been hired as a Fraud Analyst I, and I start on Sept. 23, 2013! It took me 3 months total of looking for a job and finally getting hired. I am a former teller with another bank and most recently, a registered tax preparer (which expires 12/31/13). I probably put out about 100+ applications/resumes. I was even turned down for another position with Bank of America, one of the first jobs I put in for, and although I was pretty upset about it, it turned out to be a blessing in disguise as this one has better hours (M-F regular day hours) and pays more, so it all worked out in the end.
Anyway, here is my experience in case anyone is interested. Most of it is similar to the teller hiring thread.
1. On August 11, a couple days after I was turned down for the other BofA job, I went back over to their job board to see if there were any other positions. I spotted the Fraud Analyst I job posting (originally posted on Aug. 8) and put in for it.
2. Two days later, in the late evening actually, I received an email from a recruiter wanting to set a phone interview. I emailed back my preferences and the date was set for the afternoon of August 19.
3. I was then contacted by the recruiter three days later, August 22 to set a face-to-face interview, which I picked the next day, August 23. The same day, I received a link for the ASI background information.
4. August 23 was the interview with two managers, I thought the interview went OK, all the questions were situational and/or behavioral type. They seemed really interested in my tax prep background and even asked me tax related questions which had nothing to do with the position but I figured...a test, perhaps? The managers told me they still had some more interviews to do but would have an answer in a couple weeks, that if I moved on there would be another interview...blah blah etc, so I was already thinking well I'm hearing the standard type goodbye so I was almost ready to write it off...
