Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at BNY Mellon (Lake Mary, FL).

Interview

Submitted an application online. I was called and went in for an interview. Interviewed with a couple managers and got very basic questions. I was offered the position and accepted. Nothing as complicated as I would have expected from such a big bank. I believe that confidence played a big role in getting the offer.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at BNY Mellon.

    Interview

    Very welcoming . Met with 3 managers followed by the VP of the department. All very friendly. Asked basic background questions and very thoroughly about my resume, such as what you did and how it would help you in this role. Overall not very a difficult interview. Just come prepared knowing you resume in and out.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at BNY Mellon in February 2015.

    Interview

    Pretty straight forward. Simple questions. Ask a little about you and your strengths and what you know about the position. Just know your job responsibilities and do your homework. Be sure to know what NAV is because that is a fundamental part of the job. They are more interested in finding someone that can learn new info and be able to retain that info than your work experience so be trainable and have an open mind. Overall an easy interview if you show your prepared and interested in learning more about the job.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about yourself What are your stengths/weaknesses? What do you know about bonds? What is a mutual fund? What is NAV? How is it calculated?   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at BNY Mellon.

    Interview

    Interview process took extremely long. Applied to the position through the career website and got an interview a month later. Interview went extremely well (5 different people). I got offered the position a month after the interview took place. They took too long to offer me the position, by the time they did I had already accepted a position elsewhere.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at BNY Mellon.

    Interview

    I applied online. A recruiter got back to me a few days later. We scheduled an interview at the Brooklyn, NY back office. This took place in a span of two weeks. The questions were easy and a team of people will interview you. I had 4 people back to back interview me - some engaging, some not. Fund Accounting is a back office job, so don't confuse this for Wolf of Wall St or anything remotely close to that.

    Interview Questions

    • Easy questions. Tell us about yourself. Why do you want to be a Fund Accountant? What makes you a good candidate? How comfortable are you with MS Suite? Why BNY Mellon?   Answer Question

    Very easy interview. The three interviewers went easy on me because I was referred by the department head, who's a senior Managing Director. Was been asked for a few questions about what ETF is and so on.
