    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at BNY Mellon.

    Interview Details

    Spoke with HR over the phone for an interview scheduling in Somerset, New Jersey.
    Met up with the Alternative Investment Services Team Manager.
    The office was relatively empty considering how big the space was.
    Was a comfortable 1:1 interview. This was not 'Goldman Sachs' dress up office, it was very laid back and casual environment.

    Questions asked:
    1. Tell me about yourself.
    2. Why should I hire you over other candidates
    3. Salary expectation

    HR asked me to prepare for 1 hour interview, but it lasted about 15 minutes.
    From there, I knew I did not get the job.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at BNY Mellon in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    Called in on an interview to write and update Policies and Procedures using the latest updates to Federal Regulations. Involved several departments with different levels of skills and tools. It turned out the interview was for technical manuals, and developer and programming procedures with little actual policy and procedural writing.

    Interview Questions
    • Was asked specific technical questions from each department. There were 5 experts in different skill levels (Policy, Legal, Developers, System people, Business people) and each one wanted me to be expert in each of their fields. Technical Writers cannot possibly be experts in many fields. We reflect source information, not create it.   View Answer
