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!

Are you still there? Still liking it?

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 a bit about my experience getting hired.

I applied on Dec 09 via INDEED.COM. I received an email on Dec 14 about the position and I told the recruiter I was still interested. On Dec 19 I received an email again from the recruiter, seemed to be with a sense of urgency because she let me know the work schedule and asked if the presented schedule would work for me...4 days on 3 days off of course! She also tried to call me multiple times however I wasn't able to get to the phone. So she emailed me again and asked if I was available for an interview tomorrow (Dec 20), and I accepted with just short notice.

I arrived to the location 10-15 early as suggested and brought several copies of my resume. Went to the front desk and she said "I don't see your name on the list" so I was a little confused but I rolled with it. I signed in and she took my picture for the visitors badge that I would have to keep with me during the visit. At time time I noticed about 5-6 other people rolling in for the same thing. I remember thinking, I wasn't aware of this being a group interview but whatever. A lady came and called everyone's name to confirm attendance, and my name was last due me being an add-on at the last minute.

After the team was gathered we were guided to a small conference with a round table. At this time one of the managers came in and briefly explained the position to us. He let us know that they bring us in as a group to cut down on time for them. So after the group setting we split off with other managers individually...I went into the cafeteria area. He asked basic questions like: why do you want to work here? Strengths and weaknesses? How will you adjust having to sit for 100% of your shift?. He briefly let me know the expectations for the position I was applying for and the projected start date. And if I had any questions. I always ask questions! I was called the next day to start my background check and finger printing. And I'm HIRED!!!

how long did the finger printing and background take for you to get approved?

i accepted my offer letter and submitted the background check, i now have my fingerprints in the morning. i am supposed to start on the 22nd but the recruiter was concerned my background would not be complete in time as she told me it takes about two weeks.
now i don't want to give my current employer a two weeks notice and quit for them to not get this done in time.
