I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at BNY Mellon.

Interview Details – Got the interview through a recruiter. Still had to go through the online application process. I interviewed with 4 managers although none were certain which one I'd be working under. The interview was more of a personalty test. Nothing too difficult or technical.

Interview Question – Pretty cut and dry. No hard questions. I think they were merely looking for someone with a personality similar to theirs.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiations.

Interviewed at BNY Mellon

Interview Details – 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.

Interview Question – Well, if you don't know or have limited knowledge about the job you were applying for, then be honest. The tough question is that how long we need to train you and get you do your job,   Answer Question

Fund Accountant Interview

Fund Accountant
Westborough, MA

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at BNY Mellon in February 2012.

Interview Details – I first submitted my resume to the website. Two days later I received an invitation to an interview. I got the interview with the manager and a supervisor a couple days later, and received the offer the next business day. They did a standard background check, as well as requiring a drug test.

Interview Question – The most difficult question that was asked was, "Describe your ideal workplace environment". All of the other questions were pretty standard.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There did not seem to be much of a negotiation phase. They simply called and made the offer. It did not seem like they could negotiate much.

Fund Accountant Interview

Fund Accountant
Wilmington, DE

I applied online and the process took 7+ weeks - interviewed at BNY Mellon.

Interview Details – I was contacted to come in for an interview by someone with HR. After my first interview, which was pretty basic and took about 2 hours, i heard nothing from them for over a month. I was called in for a second interview about 5 weeks after the first interview. I thought the interview went well. They asked me about my salary expectations, even asking me if i would accept a certain salary. After 3 more weeks without hearing from them, i contacted HR. After that i received an automated message saying i would not be offered the job.

Interview Question – No questions that were that difficult. There were some questions about my favorite projects in school. A lot more talking about extra-curricular activities than i was expecting. Most questions were related to my background.   Answer Question
