Hi Patrick,
While many Financial Services companies are on hiring freezes and doing layoffs, you may want to consider entry level work for one of their competitors (ie. Scottrade, JP Morgan/Chase, Ameriprise). When you start out, most of those firms will sponsor you to study and pass your Series 7 and 63 licenses. You'll make more money in the long run, and you'll find that market to be more stable than mortgage. Typically, the customers are 401K investment clients at the "institution" level. Just a suggestion.

Thanks for the well thought-out response. I would suggest you go talk with the local branch manager again. The odds are low that it will help you, but it certainly won't hurt, and you may be able to learn something about the process or what the manager is looking for. Be sure to ask the manager about anything else he/she knows about that might be up your alley as well. Many, if not most, job openings are never posted anywhere.

Good luck. MH

This may be off topic, but I want to go into "International Business". This is why I want to get my foot in the door of banking to learn more about business. I want to be able to travel to foreign countries and do "Business". I'm not quite sure what field of business I need to study for a career such as this. However, this is a motivation I have that makes me want to get a job at B of A. A teller job would just help me move forward and,in my opinion, would be a step up from my previous retail and restaurant jobs considering the fact that I'm only 18. If anyone understands what I'm looking for could you please help me understand what career I should seek for International Business. I'm currently enrolled for the fall of 2008 at my local college and have classes towards my Associates in Business. My parents even tell me that I should possibly consider taking a couple Mandarin Chinese classes. I even know a bit of Japanese and my dad is fluent with the language. Any suggestions pointing in this direction would be great!

You are going to need at least a BS degree in Business, Finance, Marketing or, more specifically, in International Business. Look at the US News & World Report rankings of undergraduate programs. Business Week also should have info about programs. Yes, a couple of years locally to get an AA degrees is an inexpensive start, but make sure of two things: 1) the credits are transferrable to a 4-year school, and 2) that you get A's in all business-related classes so that you'll get full credit at transfer.

Also, consider starting work either in a company with a major international presence (FedEx, UPS, major bank, etc.), or in a market where there are a lot of international businesses, like LA, SF, NY, etc. Phoenix isn't quite a hotbed. Working as a teller and as whatever you can get promoted to while doing college is a good start but you're going to want to move to a bigger city.

I also applied for teller position few weeks ago, but I haven't heard anything from them. I am 24 now. I speak Japanese, English, a little bit of Spanish and French. I have an Associate's degree from Japan, and I'm trying to get a Bachelor's in Accounting now. I worked at five-star hotel and a big department store for 4 years or so...I don't know what they want...Maybe teller position is really competitive.

Yes, from what I hear the teller position is one everyone fights for. The best advice I've ever been given is to apply non-stop. Show up to the location in professional clothes and ask the manager what more you can do,(Even though we already know he/she is just going to say there is not too much they can do.) Just be persistent and show them that you really mean business. If you don't have a cover letter then they probably wont consider you.

I also just applied for the second time today for B of A, If I can't get an interview I'll be blown away. I feel like I'm fully qualified for the position. However, if things don't work out again I'm simply going to apply at Compass Bank.

You may also want to try a smaller bank, perhaps a regional bank instead of a large international bank. I'm applying at multiple banks since I just want a job as a teller for beginners experience so that I can later get a job at a larger bank such as B of A or Chase.

Does anyone know if I should even bother trying so hard at getting a teller job? I fully feel that I'm qualified, I've had at LEAST 1 year of customer service and sales experience and DEFINITELY 6 months of cash handling skills. I'm very professional about how I speak to new people and customers, and I certainly look professional in a shirt and tie. The only reason I could see why BOA, Chase, Wells Fargo, etc. would turn me down would be because I'm only 18. I've applied twice at Wells Fargo, twice at BOA and once at Chase with no offer of an interview. I've tried walking in and talking to a manager multiple times and no luck. I'm just very bent on a teller job since I think it would be perfect job for me and a good step up from clothing stores and restaurants. Does anyone have any better advice? Maybe I just need a little more encouragement.

Honestly, I think very few people would be impressed with the teller position on your resume anyway. Try applying for an internship at an office somewhere if that's the only way you can get in. An assistant or a trainee job in an office would get you in the door and allow you to be closer to managers. Try applying at a staffing agency to get a realistic appraisal of your skills and how they relate to jobs available. Stay in school and get that four-year degree if you can afford it. Some people go to school at night and work during the day.

I was hoping to enlist some help from people concerning getting a job at Bank of America. I have already recieved the first screening call, passed that, then the teller assessment, passed that, and now I have to be scheduled for an interview. I was wondering if anyone could help me with what questions they ask you during the interview process. I have retail experience and lots of management, but no bank experience so I'm thrilled I got a call and an interview, but now I am so nervous. If I knew what to expect it would really calm my nerves. If anyone has been through the process before and remembers what was asked... help me! LOL. Thanks in advance!

Congratulations on making it this far! Although I was never a teller, I worked with a lot of them. Basically, the bank is looking for people who are comfortable with all types of people, who do not get rattled, and who can follow procedures. You must be able to not get rattled by either customers who are upset with the bank or someone who is trying to scam you. Obviously, cash handling experience is a plus. You will probably be asked something on the order of "Tell me about a very stressful circumstance you have had at work with a customer, and how you resolved it." Have a friend/parent/mentor act like a bank branch manager, think like them, and then interview you for the position based on what the position requires. Think about what you want a bank teller to be (cashing checks for you when you don't have any money doesn't score well on the believability scale!) And, if you have any problems on your credit report, be sure you can explain why and what you have done about them. (Don't volunteer unless it's a bankruptcy; let them ask.) Financial integrity is a must. If you can't handle your own credit, the bank will figure you'll be tempted by the tens of thousands of $$$ you'll handle daily.

Good luck.

I would not recommend for anyone to work for BOA. I currently work at a call center and it's nothing but sweatshop environment. All they care about is numbers. The management is a total joke. I would definitely look somewhere else before I get suckered into the company.

Well All I have to say then is your call center sucks...I work for BOA and LOVE i, and it is at a call center. I don't feel in anyway it is a sweatshop, are all given nice desk with our own computers and comfortable chairs. We have a huge breakroom with Vending Machines and a lunch truck parked in Front of our Building for 5 hours a day for our needs. Breaks are set up correctly to fit our needs also and our Manger are not to concern with number, it about doing the right thing for the customers. Even though they sometimes don't feel its the right thing when it comes to Money. The bank if Fair in all its practices, But when is comes to money people will never agree. All I can say is take responsiblity for your own action and learn to not over spend if you don't have it don't spend it and risk that check your wrote last week to bounce, cause it will and you won't be happy.

Well, I do agree with you as far as the work environment. We do have great work environment also. What I meant was the way our marketing dept is being run. Most of the people I have talked to are either looking way to get our of the bank of transferring to other departments. The management doesn't seem to care what we have input. They just do whatever they want.

I can't get past the "Assessment" screening for B o A. I have been an assistant manager for both McDonald's and SAM's Club (second largest company in the world). I have applied for two entry level positions (Personal Banker and Teller) with no success. Many former employees of B o A state that I have great integrity which will prevent me from ever passing the "Assessment" and say I'm making a mistake in even seeking employment with your company and I believe them now. I think it is a shame that a computer based screening assessment can stop the potential for B o A gaining a great employee. I have never been fired from a job and I am also retired from the United States Air Force with many experiences in the professional world. Please share your thoughts.

Since thise forum helped me I'll explain what happened with me...
So I applied for about 3 different positions.. Collections... Personal Banker, Teller... Took the assessment test(personality test).. 1 Month later it seems like maybe 3 weeks later I get a call from a recruiter for the collections. She was real nice.Asked me a couple questions about the position and myself. Set me up with a assessment test which has to also be passed. The assessment basically gives you examples and you answers that you rate based on what you heard and read. If you don't pass this then you don't get a call back. WIthin 30 mins of sending the email that I was done... I got a call back saying I passed and more about salary and details then a Phone interview was set up for a day later.After the Phone interview which lasts about 30 mins to 45 mins I got set up for a in person interview for 2 days later. At the site, I went through One Peer Review and then 2 supervisor interviews. All very nice, First one was a girl next two were guys.Questions asked were pretty much the same as everyone says, irate customer, Above and beyond for customer, strength, weaknesses, and of course I want to emphasize ASK QUESTIONS AT THE END!!!... even if you don't want to ask a minimum of 3 questions. Why?...it shows interests and that you read about the company. That overall took almost 2 hours... was told it would take 1... anyways at the end I didn't know what to think... I thought I did good... I walked away without really knowiong what to expect. THey told me to they'd call in 1 to 2 days...close enough within 72 hours got a call giving me an offer for the position. so I guess it takes time, right answers, and to be yourself... PS... those personality tests fail just some people... some even if you answer honestly or lying will always fail. depends on person... basically don't put the middle too much and throw in a couple extreme agrees and disagrees... for example I get mad easily or make friends easil

just to give my background experience... graduated college with a bachelors of arts in social science. Had 4+ years in customer service, recently had a job in merchant banking/ investment banking, not any experience in banking at all, nor the specific job. however banking is all about customer experience, and being able to build a relationship, so I guess this shows anyone with any background can make the entry level positions

You have your own answer: you're a recent graduate. Why would the largest bank in the country, by assets, hire a recent graduate with no experience? You need to earn your stripes, pay your dues, and work for a lot less money at a lot less prestigious bank or company. You may think it's unfair, but everyone has been in your shoes at one point in time or another.

Then essentially you worked less than part time and is tantamount to only two years of employment, at best. Furthermore, your old job is probably not up to par in terms of what BofA is seeking, since, obviously, you're seeking a different job. I'm not trying to be mean, but we have soaring high levels of unemployment. Ceteris paribus, why would BofA hire a recent grad with little experience over someone who needs little training and has extensive experience. You're competing against people who have a ton of experience and credentials who are also seeking employment. Everyone wants to work at BofA. You can't work there just because you want to. I got hired, and it was only because I had a solid track of experience and education. Seems to me like you just want to skip having to work hard and go straight to the top. Not gonna happen in this economy. Do you know how many people have IT degrees? A lot!

Any advice for someone trying to get in?

Many of us feel the Bank of America test is a GIMMICK. Anyway you answer those questions , you fail! Me and a couple of people all applied at the same time and made sure we all answered differently, and it said each of us was not qualified for the position. Its a gimmick for Bank of America or any employer have job seekers to take that test. I think they want to hire whom they want and f you fail, they don't care t even look at your resume and cover letter.

Answer: You can't get the first interview b/c its a bogus assessment test they make you take

Bogus Assessment tests... I've been job searching for about 2 1/2 years and have gone to the second hiring process, by taking the assessment test. I will say that, it is bogus. This assessment test is not only offered from BOFA, but with BCBS, Suntrust Bank, Edward Jones and other employers, that I can't remember. Quiet, as kept, an employee has too stated, that it is not meant to pass!!!

My resume has always matched the position that I'm applying for. As I read some of the comments, it's clear that every location is different. My ex husband works for BOFA and has had a different experience as well. It was super simple for him and has been promoted, since then!!! LOL. I will continue to search and remain positive. But if anyone has any leads, feel free to ablige...

I have experience as a mortgage specialist, fraud analyst, online technical support and customer service (all within a financial/call center environment). I desire the position in its order. Thank you...

If I can as which assessment are you talking about? Is it the first assessment asking how you did in school and if you were ever late to your last job or is it the simulation? If it is the first assessment just try to answer everything positively. That's your best bet. Don't say that you got mainly F's in high school or that your were late alot to your last job. That doesn't make you look good to employers. If its the simulation the just take your time and try to answer the responds as to how you would want someone to talk to you if you called a business.

We are expanding our Corporate Operation here in Charlotte and are looking to add some new NMLS Loan Officers to our team.

Susan Adams in Rock Hill, South Carolina said: After being laid off from Bank of America twice, I would not refer my enemy to the "evil empire". I have three degrees, did a great job, traveled across the country delivering training, even moved to Boston for eight months to assist with the Fleet merger. Unfortunately, I am not a "groupie" so when I was invited out for drinks time and time again and refused, I was labeled as not being a "team player". When you are labeled, you can forget about promotions. Bank of America is very "small" when it you consider the small number of senior managers (EVP) that are employed there.

If you are hired at Bank of America, be sure you enjoy "Happy hours".

I worked for Bank of America, or a predecessor, for nearly 36 years. I started as a teller and ended as a Sr. Operations Analyst. I also lost my job twice and am still trying to find another one. However, in all of those years I was never required to go to happy hour. I had to do my job to the best of my ability and lost my job both times due to down sizing.

I work at Bank of America for about a month now in the Call Center. I am struggling with banking and with the software but the managers and trainers have been very supportive as long as they know you are trying to grasp it. I don't plan on making banking a permanent career but hoping to enjoy my time working here. It can e stressful at times. My goal is to finish my Masters degree in Social Work in the next two to three years. Everyone is friendly here.
