    The interview was fairly easy and the questions were mainly behavioral in nature. There were no tech questions in the first interview. The interviewer was very nice, so it was a little bit more like having a conversation.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at BNY Mellon.

    Interview Details

    Pretty easy, laid back interview process. Questions in the technical interview were very diverse; front end to back end to systems design etc. the behavioral interview was just a bunch of questions aimed at figuring out how you think and how you approach day to day problems. Everyone I met there were extremely friendly and made me feel comfortable. The entire process took rather long, something like 3 - 4 weeks.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeksinterviewed at BNY Mellon in March 2015.

    Interview Details

    The interview wasn't bad. I was interviewed by the head manager and the guy I would directly be working for. They had a list of questions in front of them that they used. It was mostly just behavioral type questions. I am straight out of college so I don't have any experience, so the only job related questions they asked me was "what do you know about corporate trust?"

    Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at BNY Mellon.

    Interview Details

    Interviewing process was horrible. I had a phone interview with 2 managers and then was called in for an in person interview with 3 people. A week after interview I received a phone call from HR asking my interest level and to verify my salary requirements along with telling me I received positive feedback and that management was just deciding were area to place everyone. A week and half after that HR called again that they wanted me to come back in and meet with 2 different managers. 3 days after that interview HR called to tell me that they would not be offering me the job because I did not have enough experience. Why bring someone in for multiple interviews when they do not have enough experience?
