    Interview Details

    I interviewed for Exchange Traded Funds Accountant position. I supposed to speak with 3 manager, each for 30 min. however, I spoke with only two and they said the 3rd was busy doing something and "some other time". The manager I spoke with was friendly and nice, asked me questions: Why BNY Mellon? and some finance questions: What is the difference between return of assets and return on income. Another question was could you tell me if bonds and common stock pay dividends? Very finance related questions.

    I did a formal interview once, then they ended up hiring someone else. A year and a half later, they called me back and I interviewed. It was much better, and I ended up getting the job.

    I applied through college or university. The process took a day - interviewed at BNY Mellon in July 2009.

    Interview Details

    The easiest interview ever. Got a call through career services at college and set up interview for next day. Went to Interview, had 3 one on one convesations with various managers and team leaders. Got a call the next day with an offer.
    Most questions are about background and interests.

    Negotiation Details
    Got an offer but negotiated an increase of 2K. Not much, but considering the company, i think it's an achievement. There is a huge turn-over at BNY. Don't be afraid to ask for higher salary, but do not give ultimatum. Better have plan B if negotiations don't go as planned.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 days - interviewed at BNY Mellon in January 2009.

    The role was applied online. Received the initial communication from HR to come in and meet with her. This interview was just consisted of skill sets. Questions were 1) Why I am interested in this role? 2) Expectation of Salary? 3) When can I start? Once this was done I met with the team members of the group. This was a group interview. Questions asked were 1) Explain about my past roles? 2) Why I would be fit for this role? 3) Experience dealing with clients in the specific market (Europe, middle east)? 4) How would I describe myself?

    Business Solution Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at BNY Mellon in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    I recently pursued an employment opportunity within the IT business unit; a formal offer and benefits package was presented to me verbally for an individual contributor role at a VP level. In the midst of the salary negotiations I inquired about general information related to compensation. That inquiry was 3 weeks ago; to date, I have not received any further communications related to the offer. I made several attempts to contact the HR representative handling the position recruitment with no response.

    Unfortunately, I feel this is an example of lack of professionalism and poor communication. I wish the best of luck to any and all prospective new hires. My genuine hope is this is not the standard HR policy at BNY Mellon.

    First round was a telephone screen with HR people, few easy questions, like "what you do at your current job", "how much do you make" and "why you looking for leave your current"

    The second round consisted of a series of four interviews. All four interviews pretty much all just repeat similar questions from the phone screen.
