    Technology Interview

    Interview Details

    Very situational based interview. Lots of questions surrounding "name a time when you" in particular specifics. Overall a great company to work for, they are putting a lot of time into developing technology workers. Get exposed to a lot of different facets of the company throughout the interview process. Don't be afraid to take time to think if you can't come up with an answer right away.

    Interview Details

    I was recruited through my school's career department and was chosen to interview on site. The interview was more of a conversation to see what type of person I was and what my background was. Very few technical questions and it is important to ask many questions about the type of environment/workplace it is.

    Account Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at BNY Mellon.

    Interview Details

    I was asked to walk through my resume, describe relevant job and internship experience. HR gives the interviewers a list of questions, like "What is your greatest weakness" and "Describe an instance in which you overcame a problem" but a lot of the managers won't ask them because they think it's a waste of their time. There were no technical or industry specific questions, which surprised me.

    Negotiation Details
    Always negotiate and you can get at least $1000 more. I definitely dropped the ball on that one because I figured since they knew my last salary, I couldn't get more than what they offered. From asking around, I was wrong.

    Intern - Hourly Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at BNY Mellon.

    Interview Details

    I sent my resume after seeing a posting at school. I received a call two days later from a recruiter and we spoke for about fifteen minutes. We set up an interview for a few days later. The interview was in two parts, but it was very laid back. Both of the interviewers did not seem to really care because they were not really involved (I haven't seen either of them in the office...ever). After the interview I did not know how to feel, but the recruiter called me back within three days and gave me the offer. I had two days to accept and go take a drug test. After that I did not hear anything until my start date.

    Interview Questions
    • The two interviewers had packets that they read the questions from. Neither of the packets really related to anything I do.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at BNY Mellon.

    Interview Details

    It was a one round interview. The questions were mainly behavioral. Decent entry level position, but it takes a lot to move throughout the organization. The skills you will develop will need to be expanded glamourized a bit when applying for future roles. Most of the people there are happy with their current role and not looking for more responsibility.

    I had no leverage because it was my first role.
