Manager Interview

Manager

I applied through other source and the process took 5 days - interviewed at BNY Mellon.

Interview Details – Typical interview process in corporate. Submit resume online, receive a call from HR and then meet with person hiring for the position.

Interview Question – Nothing difficult or unexpected. No surprises.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – The HR group does the salary offer so you go back and forth with them. For me, they made the offer, I went back about $10,000 higher and they met me halfway. Once the offer is made they make it clear that you must pass the drug test before it is official and you have only a certain period of time to have the test. The process was pretty standard for this kind of company.

Administrator Interview

Administrator

Interviewed at BNY Mellon

Interview Details – The interview process was very demanding. The company wanted to fight lower and lower when negotiating salary. Also, the company wanted me to begin employment a month before graduation even began. Certainly this would not be a problem, however I would practically be working minimum wage. Additionally, I have heard very unfavorable criticisms regarding the work environment.

Interview Question – Tell me three things about your internship that are not on your resume?   Answer Question
