    Quality Control Analyst Interview

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

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 days - interviewed at BNY Mellon in December 2010.

    Interview Details

    I met with the Site Manager and the group manager for about a half hour. It was pretty informal and laid back. There was not much emphasis on qualifications. More of a personality evaluation. The main thing that I believe helped was being personable and being able to handle questions without hesitation. There is no second interview, it is a one shot deal in the site manager's office. Even though no one on the floor is in a suit and tie, everyone that interviews is expected to do so for the interview. References are a must though. They called 4/6 of the references I have (3 professional and 1 of the 3 personal)

    Interview Questions
    • They asked for an example of a time when someone you were working with was not pulling their weight. How did you react and was the issue resolved?   View Answer

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at BNY Mellon.

    Interview Details

    It was a one round interview. The questions were mainly behavioral. Decent entry level position, but it takes a lot to move throughout the organization. The skills you will develop will need to be expanded glamourized a bit when applying for future roles. Most of the people there are happy with their current role and not looking for more responsibility.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pittsburgh, PA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a day - interviewed at BNY Mellon in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Interview was very relaxed, one on one with a team supervisor and the hiring manager (although in my particular case, he was out for the day). Took place in a private conference room and lasted roughly 30 minutes. Primarily a conversation; wanted to figure out if I would fit into the group atmosphere. Also discussed proficiency in Microsoft Excel (this is imperative to the job) and general understanding of the financial industry as a whole (less imperative, but still important - you will be trained thoroughly on these subjects).
