    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at BNY Mellon in February 2015.

    Interview

    Pretty straight forward. Simple questions. Ask a little about you and your strengths and what you know about the position. Just know your job responsibilities and do your homework. Be sure to know what NAV is because that is a fundamental part of the job. They are more interested in finding someone that can learn new info and be able to retain that info than your work experience so be trainable and have an open mind. Overall an easy interview if you show your prepared and interested in learning more about the job.

      What are your stengths/weaknesses?

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at BNY Mellon (New York, NY) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I applied through my university and had two rounds of interviews. The first was on campus with someone that had completed the program and focused primarily on my resume. There was a technical question about website optimization from a front-end, back-end, and database perspective, which was pretty easy. The interviewer was incredibly friendly, and would help you talk through your thought process and your answer.

    I was invited back for their "Super Day" at their office in New York. I wasn't sure what to expect beforehand, but when I got there, I was informed that there would be two rounds of technical interviews. The first was a lot of very technical questions, but nothing that wasn't covered in my basic Computer Science courses. (ex. Write a program to find Fibonacci numbers, inheritance/encapsulation, BST, arrays vs. linked lists). The second interview was actually more behavioral than I expected, but seemed to be more focused on how you react to stressful situations and being put under pressure.

    The two interviews lasted approximately 3 hours, and was actually pretty difficult due to the length and the amount of different questions that were asked. By the end of it I was sure I hadn't gotten the job, however I got a call back a few days later. Everyone I spoke to was extremely nice and easy to talk to, so even though the actual interview was exhausting, I never felt like I was being judged for not knowing something, as the interviewer would help you arrive at the answer on your own. I actually learned a lot!

    Reading through interview questions on Glassdoor was extremely helpful when preparing for the interview.

    Sales Associate I Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at BNY Mellon (Chicago, IL) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I applied to a Sales Associate I position for the wealth management division in Chicago. The process moved along very smoothly. I initially had a phone screen that was used to get my background/experience and learn more about the role. I was then contacted a few days later to set up an in-person interview in Chicago.
    I drove to Chicago (which is always miserable) and met with a director about the role. He was very easy going and was more interested in learning about me and my interests instead of things that I had done in my previous roles. I think this is because it as a sales role. The job is basically to gain clients for the wealth management services that they offer. So anything from wining and dining to going to a ball game might be necessary. They want to make sure that they have someone who can hold conversations and can fit in with very wealthy people (the minimum to open an account is $3 million). Even though it's a sales role and has no financial planning or analyzing involved, be sure that you understand how that portion of BNY Mellon works. I then received an email a couple of weeks later saying that they hired someone else.
