    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?

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at BNY Mellon.

    Interview Details

    Applied through on campus recruiting and interviewed with HR. That part went fine and was flown in for the super day. Once I got there, I was being asked questions that were not suited for my skill set. My interviewer made my life miserable for that whole hour and he knew that I couldn't answer these questions. My recruiter acknowledged that I was being asked questions that were not suited for me after I finished. Overall, it was a stressful day that was wasted for both parties. Not sure what he was thinking at all.
