Interview Question – Most of the questions were routine but I always think that when they ask "what is your greatest weakness" is challenging.   View Answer

Financial Controller Interview

Financial Controller
Pittsburgh, PA

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at BNY Mellon in April 2014.

Interview Details – Applied directly to a posting on the company website, and was called for an interview. I only interviewed with the hiring manager - no one else was invited into the interview to give another opinion, and I did not get to interview with the hiring manager's boss. The interview was a little rushed and I did not get to finish asking my questions. The hiring manager asked me to email the rest of my questions, which I did. I never got a response to that email, nor have I heard anything from anyone at BNY since.

Interview Question – Very little specific information about the position was offered beforehand, so I had to do all of my own research. This made it difficult to prepare for specific questions.   View Answer
