I have applied for many jobs at BoA with no reply, I guess nobody care there. A simple yes or no would be better.

I had three interviews for a position at BOA and they never got back to me as well. I agree - a simple yes or no answer certainly would have been have been appreciated.

First off let me state that I have no affiliation with Bank of America. That being said, you have to understand companies receive so many application that they can not possibly get back with everyone that applies. On the other point though, I agree whole heartedly. If someone interviews you they have an obligation to call you back and give you feedback, even if it is that they have hired another person. Thats just the professional thing to do. The problem with that is most recruiters are not trained on how to handle this and prefer to avoid the confrontation.

Just my .02 as a recruiter.

hi ,Any one can give reply on email ,writing one mail with simple explaination and sending it on the available ID does not call for any confrontation.
Thanks

That's true, but then a candidate that is not qualified for whatever reason has your e-mail address. This can lead to future confrontations when the person e-mails you constantly. Trust me its happened to me before. Luckily I don't have a problem with confrontation. :P

A negitive answer is better that no answer, they send an E-mail confirming receipt, why can't the reviewer after reading answer maybe or just plain NO.

The e-mail that you receive confirming receipt is usually automated when you send your app in. If a recruiter personally responded to everyone that applied via e-mail, even if it is just a simple no it would take forever to send all those e-mails. You have to realize that when a company posts a job it is typical to receive anywhere from 50 - 100 resumes for that position alone. That is for a specialized job. I have posted a very common job in the past, a medical assistant and received well over 500 application for that position. There is no way that a recruiter can personally respond to all those applicants. Also you have to take into account that most recruiters are looking for candidate for multiple jobs.

And now for a shameless plug.

Thanks again, and hope to see you all on our forums :)

thanks for taking time and sending a detail reply but in my case ,I never got negative reply for the two emails i sent to my recruiters ,they have stated that they will ask me to go for a third interview if needed and I am waiting for my third interview from last 2 months which is absolutely rediculous if taken to be true ,this gives me just one impression that I have not been clearly informed about my performance in the interview or my selection for the emplyoment.
And for your information I have not followed them up after that and had never put a single mail.
After all this was enough to guess the real decision
which ethically should have been conveyed to me .
Anyways no regrets atleast u r taking time to give reply in this regard.

Even if you get no response from the recruiter, can you still apply for a different position? I'm assuming that there's different recruiters for different positions, right?

Okay.. So I went through all the interviews at the beginning of last month and my recruiter said I did really well and that the bank wanted to go ahead with my application and give me an offer, but they couldn't offer me the job yet because they had to keep the job posted?? and that the job would not start anyways till the beginning of this month. Well the day they said they would offer me the job, they never called... So of course I called them (just a few days ago) and now they are telling me that they have to get the offer approved, because of budgets and its because its towards the end of the year?! Every time they say they are going to call me, they never do and I have to call them. I just don't know if they are just leading me on or what.. it has almost been a whole month now since I did the interview... Why would they lie about it?! Should I just be patient or move on!?

You know that these institutions are abusing people with job needs
The government should get serious and audit the hiring process at these banks.

I agree with you guys completely.I attended the final round interview in the last week of October this year and I got a reply from them stating my application status as pending and that they would relay their final decision on Nov 22nd.I haven't heard anything from them since then.Nobody has cared to answer my emails or my phonecalls.Why can't they reply with a simple yes or a no?

While going through the interview process at BOA i read many of your emails. I have to share my experience because I feel BOA handles interviews poorly. I am very educated, I have my masters and experience in the administrative field. I recently applied for a position and also knew someone in the department. They first start with a recruiter calling you. After the recruiter calls you, they set you up for a phone interview. You then have to wait a week just to figure out if you passed the phone interview. You then are set up on an in person interview. I ended taking a half day for my in person interview only to get there and be considered by only 2 of the 3 people (The third never showed up). They asked me maybe three questions. I should have known from the start that I only was brought in on a mock interview because I knew someone. They then told me I would hear back by the end of the week. The remaining days were incredibly stressful waiting to see if I got the job. They never called or emailed. I waited patiently and received no response. I then emailed both the HR and recruiter and then the recruiter called me and told me that although I was a strong applicant they hired someone stronger. It was BS from the start, they knew a person with 10+ years experience was coming in and therefore my 3+ experience was nothing to compare. They wasted my time, money taking off from work, and gave me a few gray hairs along the way as well as feeling completely rejected. I am young, educated, have some experience AND knew someone and still didn't get hired. It may have been a blessing in disquise but I hope this helps those of you looking to know their interview process and hope you never have the same depressing/stressful situation. Best of luck & don't worry if you are rejected- you'll find something better.
