    Managing Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pittsburgh, PA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pittsburgh, PA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at BNY Mellon.

    Interview Details

    Started with phone screening -- 5 minute call. Then a 60 minute phone interview. Traveled to NYC and interviewed with hiring manager. Then traveled to Pittsburgh and interviewed with 4 direct reports.

    Negotiation Details
    Get salary, bonus, relocation, incentives, and job description in writing. Sounds like a non sequitur but I found that things they told me to be "givens" turned out later to have contingencies. Like the signing bonus was not available for 3 years.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at BNY Mellon.

    Interview Details

    A lot of behavior based questions. Some are expected as with any interview, but theirs is an overkill.
    You must sign in with security desk before being escorted to HR. During the interview, be candid open and honest about your experience and expectations; always is best policy. The interview itself will be pretty brief.

    Interview Questions
    • Any behavioral question is unexpected. You can't really prepare for those. My advice is to just be yourself.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at BNY Mellon.

    Interview Details

    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.

      Tell us about yourself.
      Why do you want to be a Fund Accountant?
      What makes you a good candidate?
