    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeksinterviewed at BNY Mellon (Pittsburgh, PA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    The interview wasn't bad. I was interviewed by the head manager and the guy I would directly be working for. They had a list of questions in front of them that they used. It was mostly just behavioral type questions. I am straight out of college so I don't have any experience, so the only job related questions they asked me was "what do you know about corporate trust?"

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at BNY Mellon.

    Interview

    Pretty easy, laid back interview process. Questions in the technical interview were very diverse; front end to back end to systems design etc. the behavioral interview was just a bunch of questions aimed at figuring out how you think and how you approach day to day problems. Everyone I met there were extremely friendly and made me feel comfortable. The entire process took rather long, something like 3 - 4 weeks.
