    Client Accounting and Reporting Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pittsburgh, PA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pittsburgh, PA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at BNY Mellon in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Interview was very relaxed, one on one with a team supervisor and the hiring manager (although in my particular case, he was out for the day). Took place in a private conference room and lasted roughly 30 minutes. Primarily a conversation; wanted to figure out if I would fit into the group atmosphere. Also discussed proficiency in Microsoft Excel (this is imperative to the job) and general understanding of the financial industry as a whole (less imperative, but still important - you will be trained thoroughly on these subjects).

    I applied through other source. The process took 5 daysinterviewed 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 Questions
    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.

    Financial Controller Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pittsburgh, PA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pittsburgh, PA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed 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 Questions
    • 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

    Administrator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    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.
