    Technology Interview

    Interview Details

    Very situational based interview. Lots of questions surrounding "name a time when you" in particular specifics. Overall a great company to work for, they are putting a lot of time into developing technology workers. Get exposed to a lot of different facets of the company throughout the interview process. Don't be afraid to take time to think if you can't come up with an answer right away.

    Interview Details

    I was recruited through my school's career department and was chosen to interview on site. The interview was more of a conversation to see what type of person I was and what my background was. Very few technical questions and it is important to ask many questions about the type of environment/workplace it is.

    Private Banking Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at BNY Mellon.

    Interview Details

    I had an interview scheduled after I was urged to rearrange my schedule to go into the office to meet with a team for an approximately 3 hour long interview process. I rearranged my schedule for the following week to take the day off for the multiple rounds of interviews. The evening before my interviews, I received an email from one of the recruiters stating that they had to cancel my interview because they had identified a candidate for the position. I followed up regarding any other opportunities that were in line with my background and she stated that there were none.
    I would have appreciated the courtesy to be considered for the position at least especially after I rearranged my work schedule, had cancelled appointments to accommodate this company, and was prepared to travel a distance to interview.
    Positions that were identical to the position that i originally was to be interviewed for were posted online and I applied and emailed the two hiring managers that I was originally in contact with regarding my application. I never heard from them nor received any follow up or consideration and it's left a terrible impression in my mind regarding the company, how it treats candidates for its positions, and its hiring process.

    Interview Questions
    • The phone interview was pretty predictable. Typical work experience questions and how they correlate with the position.   View Answer

    Account Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at BNY Mellon.

    Interview Details

    I was asked to walk through my resume, describe relevant job and internship experience. HR gives the interviewers a list of questions, like "What is your greatest weakness" and "Describe an instance in which you overcame a problem" but a lot of the managers won't ask them because they think it's a waste of their time. There were no technical or industry specific questions, which surprised me.

    Negotiation Details
    Always negotiate and you can get at least $1000 more. I definitely dropped the ball on that one because I figured since they knew my last salary, I couldn't get more than what they offered. From asking around, I was wrong.

    Intern - Hourly Interview

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    I sent my resume after seeing a posting at school. I received a call two days later from a recruiter and we spoke for about fifteen minutes. We set up an interview for a few days later. The interview was in two parts, but it was very laid back. Both of the interviewers did not seem to really care because they were not really involved (I haven't seen either of them in the office...ever). After the interview I did not know how to feel, but the recruiter called me back within three days and gave me the offer. I had two days to accept and go take a drug test. After that I did not hear anything until my start date.

    Interview Questions
    • The two interviewers had packets that they read the questions from. Neither of the packets really related to anything I do.   Answer Question
