Business Analyst Interview

Anonymous Employee
Pittsburgh, PA

I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at BNY Mellon in April 2012.

Interview Details – Interview process was different than the normal process as I spoke directly with the hiring director. First phone interview was with the hiring director followed by another interview with two managers under the director. I was called a few days later with an offer which I countered. They accepted my counter offer without issue.

Business Analyst Interview

Business Analyst
Pune (India)

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 months - interviewed at BNY Mellon in June 2010.

Interview Details – The interview was for a Software Analyst position (they have a generic Business Analyst role).
The first round was a telephonic technical round where I was questioned by one of the Team Leads on .NET and SQL.
This was followed by another call for a HR interview that was meant to check on how I work in a team, how well I gel with people, etc.
The third round was a small project involving .NET, WinForms and Access programming that I needed to submit a solution to within 3 days.
The last round was a face-to-face interview at the company office, with my future Team Lead and Manager, followed by a interaction with the team I was to join. Also, a video conference with my onshore manager to get his final approval.
