Former BofA Recruiter in Los Angeles, California

93 months ago

Bank Tellers in the Los Angeles area make $9.00 an hour, work part time, are expected to be available Monday-Saturday any schedule, and must wear a suit to work every day.

But hey, it was $8.50 an hour when I first started there.

You are crazy to work there for that long, only making $15 an hr, and no raise in 2 years! I am not sure what you do but I would think your job stability and skills could get you a job with more pay!

Unless you are in an executive/coporate/administrative position, the starting salaries are low at BOA considering that it's a multi-billion dollar company. Depending on the position, salaries average 21k-35k. The fraud dept is the worst - extremely high turnover, a pathetic management staff that wouldn't know organized if it bit them in the face, ridiculous work schedules, and advancement based on favoritism. The benefits are excellent! The associate discount program is worthless. And bonuses?...what's that?These criticisms are just the tip of the iceberg. Bank of America...(lol) don't let the famous name fool you.

I agree 100% with this. I was at Bank of America for 4 years and barely got a raise and never got a bonus. I worked as an Investment Analyst and was laid off with notice, just came to work that day and was told I was being laid-off the same day. It is so true, don't let the "famous name" fool you. Bank of America treats their associate like CRAP.

CORRECTION.......
I was laid-off with NO notice.

Hi Edward,
Instead of looking on all of these web sites go to www.BankofAmerica.com. Their might be another job that catches your eye better. You can call or better yet go to a local branch. Ask your question. They will not know if your a secret shopper or not. If they want a bonus they will try to get your answer in a very fast and proffesional way. Don't go dressed up. Go in casual clothes. Ask a few questions. Like I said then they will all get suspecious. They want to make sure they have a great review so they have the chance to get a high score and bonus

Did you try the credit unions's?

If you currently work at BofA, call the HR department and ask them! The salary ranges for a job description are not confidential. The salaries of individuals are.

Same response as a month ago - cal the HR department of BofA and ask them what the salary range is. It's partly dependent on geography, part of branch size/profit goal. Contact them and ask.

I want to know how is the bonues earned as a Personal Banker in Bank of America? they count individual or as a team for the whole branch reps. Please let me know, I applied and I am in the next step wich is the personal interview, any tips that you can share with me for the interview please? Also, how is the job is so stressful or not. Bye

Chandra - use this question in your interview. You have every right to ask about how compensation is calculated, including what is the potential maximum bonus you can earn relative to your base salary,

You need to clarify your English - does the last sentence as:
1. How stressful is the job? or
2. How is it that the job is so stressful?

I don't think anyone can answer that. Stress is based on what you find stressful. Again, ask in the interview what specifically the job entails so you can see if those activities are stressful for you. Also, for most people, stress comes from your immediate supervisor. Make sure you talk one on one with that person to see how well you relate.

Good luck.

They told me the salary very openly before I applied. It's one of the ways the screen out applicants. Unlike other companies, I don't think it's a problem if you ask.

It really does depend on what you do. For example a customer service rep I (call center-prime/model) makes about 12.30hour, but if you work an evening shift you get a 10% pay differential, if you speak another language fluently (with professionalism) add another 10% on top of that. Customer service rep II makes about 16 to 17 an hour (like the cd/ira dept and online banking), some customer service repII positions pay only 13-14 an hour.
If you have previous customer service experience in financial services, negotiate with them, if you are working in northern california you should at least be making 29,000 a year with 1-2 years experience!
Also, BOA look great on your resume, I worked there for one year with no prior banking experience, and was hired at (that's confidential), but I am still a call center rep II but I make a lot more (21.62 to be exact). Get experience and excell within the company or move on to a better position!
Good luck! Hope I was helpful.

You can contact HR but honestly you would be wasting your time. HR reps are so tight lipped about salaries you will be lucky if they don't disconnect you when you call. As a general rule of thumb an hr recruiter will never tell you a specific salary (NOT EVEN A RANGE) unless they are prepared to make a job offer to you. Your best bet is to use reliable resources such as employees of the bank, payscale.com, or vault.com.
Again, I can't stress enough that asking for a salary range for any position from an HR rep (who is not making a job offer to you) is a bad idea.

I retired from BofA in Portland, albeit 5 years ago. The company is a rewarding place to work, but be aware that the pressue on customer-facing people to produce sales is pretty intense. When you make your goals and the banking center makes its goals, the avaialble pay and bonusare (well, used to be) pretty good.

Alas I cannot tell you what current salaries are, but the HR deparment should be able to give you the salary range for a particular job you are applying for.

I noticed a sign on my local branch last night that there is a career fair coming up on, I think, the 25th and 26th at the 1001 SW 5th location. Go to a banking center to check it out, and then go to the career fair to get as much info as you can.

Employee benefits at the bank are very good.

Good luck.

I have been applying at BOA for over a month and still have not received a call back....I was a teller at Wachovia for over three years and I am currently a Collections/Branch Manager. I am applying for a PB position or Mgr position in the Atlanta area. I am 3 classes shy from receiving my BS in Psychology and minor in Bus. Admin. What am I doing wrong?? My back ground check is on point as well as my credit.

I got the PB job as an entry level; I just graduated in May. So, I can tell you that as long as you have a Bachelor's degree, they don't care. In terms of experience, I know that they stress on sales experience greatly - esp. on experience that dealt with meeting goals. I was probably hired because I had a number notable achievements in sales.

Before the entire process for me took place, I had to fill out a screening survey. One of the question was salary expectation. Could they have screened you out from that?

B of A just called me and told me they would be interested in me for the Sales and Service position. I applied for the PB positon because that is what I have been doing for a while, I started out as the Sales and Service role a long time ago, the only difference was pay. When I started in the banking field the small bank I was with paid me 29,500 a year, my friend makes that as a teller at another bank but bank of america told me they could only pay 22-26K for the sales and service position. I told them thanks but no thanks, anyone interested in this rold should try a small bank or credit union they'll pay alot more and you'll get the same experience. The guy who called me to talk from HR didn't even know I was already licensed!!! Even though it says it clearly under licenses on my resume, when I told him what I had been doing and what licenses I have he seemed shocked like he heard it for the first time. He tried to back pedal and sell me on the position, then he tried to say that I don't have the experience they require allthough my experience matched perfectly and I have more than enough educational background. What a douche bag. I am not impressed at all by the b of a hiring practices seems liks no one gives a damn about their job so far.

They pay less than a teller at other banks for this position. I was told it is the assistant to the PB, Loan officer etc and a teller. I did this for a smaller bank a while back and was paid about 30K year plus incentive about 400 month and 1000 a quarter, B of A pays low 20's for this with about 2K year incentive.

So now I think I pissed B of A off some how. I exceed every qualification for the PB position but cannot get a single call back. Since they last called me for the other position. I just couldn't take it because it would be dropping my income in half and I would honestly be go in the hole by taking that position. I would take it if I could afford to and promote later but I can't. I keep applying but nothing... wtf! I have gotten calls from other banks no problem been to interviews and have good prospects what is wrong with the recruiters at B of A?
