New York, NY

I applied through college or university - interviewed at BNY Mellon in May 2010.

Interview Details – Initially I interviewed with a managing director who came to my campus to conduct interviews. The interview was pretty straightforward, mostly questions about my resume. Then I was invited to interview at their office with several of the team members I would be working for. Again, these questions mostly revolved around my resume.

Interview Question – Describe a time you failed and what you learned about it.   Answer Question

Interview Details – very easy. Didn't ask me many question. The manager did ask some question about the business. Needed to show my knowledge about finance, time management, and so on. Very friendly interview environment. Like a conversation more than an interview.

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at BNY Mellon in April 2011.

Interview Details – Applied online, was then called two days later for an interview in three days. The interview was with two managers, standard open process: "name a time when you underperformed, when you have influenced someone." They didn't contact me for a month and a half and then offered me the job.

Intern Interview

Intern
Pittsburgh, PA

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at BNY Mellon in April 2010.

Interview Details – 2 phone interviews for the internship...not too demanding at all. About 5 minutes of "tell me about yourself," 15 minutes of "here's what we do," and 10 minutes for questions. Sort of weird because it seemed pretty easy to get, yet I applied to a bunch (30+) of different positions on their site and this was the first (and only) one I made it further than the application stage on.

Interview Question – Tell me about yourself.   Answer Question
