There is some sort of a turnaround. It is as if companies experienced with jerking applicants around and slowly started to realize that it was not getting them too far ahead. But that's just an appearance.

Reality could be different. It could be that there are more job openings (and real ones), where people are needed to fill positions right away. If so, this is a welcome sign, as it would mean there are more jobs today than just few months ago.

It's also possible that we are few of the lucky ones who, by chance (or may be precisely because we sent out lots of resumes) were hired rather quickly after searching for a job a 'mere' three months (by all means it is not a short period of time to look for a job before landing one, but comparing it to what others describe as years of futile job search, I think we must have been very lucky).

In any event, CONGRATULATIONS to you!

I saw the two most recent postings but am on the west coast. Hopefully there will be openings again for the June timeframe.

I applied for fraud analyst II. Not sure if I'll get called since I'm no longer local but will relocate. They must be hiring quite a few people because there seems to be a new training class every month and now temp agencies are recruiting for the position

MysticPizza- Thanks so much for putting all of this down. I just interviewed for the same position today. How is the day to day for this position? My experience differed in that my interview was only 10 minutes if that, is that a bad sign?

Just to give you my two cents J. I am a current Fraud Analyst II contractor at BofA. I have a background in credit card fraud. This position so far has been challenging but very rewarding. I can't speak for the Newark call center environment but Phoenix is pretty cool.

That is the same position I interviewed for. How was your interview? I really like and want the job and just concerned I was casted off as my interview was so different than what everyone else on here is reporting. May I ask how it is challenging and also what makes it so rewarding? Thank you for your input!

My interview was a group environment with about 15 of us and 5 or 6 fraud managers. They each took us back to a room and asked standard questions about "name a time when". In my group approx 4 of us got the job.

There's just a lot to learn with various systems. Its rewarding because I talk to so many customers who Are so grateful that you're watching out for their money.

Well I just found out earlier I was hired! Yay! No I need to do the ASI background but how do I find out about my last 5 years of work history?? I did multiple work studies but never kept any information. She said to use the irs website but I cant find anything. Hate to see this keep me from getting the position

Congrats on getting the job! Maybe I'll be there with you in a few months. I'd love to go back East ads be near my family.

But sure what to tell you about the work study history issue. I'm sure it's will all work out.

Hi everyone, I almost forgot about this thread until just now. :)
Ashley there should be contact information for the recruiter on the job description itself.
I'm no longer a Fraud Analyst, but I am still with BofA, I'm now in Operations as a Research/Adjustments Rep. Loving it so far (I started in July).
Best of luck to everyone!

oh congrats! But there is no contact info on indeed and they also took the job posting off. So I guess that means the positions are full?

Just out of curiosity are those of you who've applied or working in Newark doing credit card or atm debit fraud?
