Quality Control Analyst Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 2 days - interviewed at BNY Mellon in December 2010.
Interview Details – I met with the Site Manager and the group manager for about a half hour. It was pretty informal and laid back. There was not much emphasis on qualifications. More of a personality evaluation. The main thing that I believe helped was being personable and being able to handle questions without hesitation. There is no second interview, it is a one shot deal in the site manager's office. Even though no one on the floor is in a suit and tie, everyone that interviews is expected to do so for the interview. References are a must though. They called 4/6 of the references I have (3 professional and 1 of the 3 personal)
Interview Question – They asked for an example of a time when someone you were working with was not pulling their weight. How did you react and was the issue resolved? View Answer
Negotiation Details – It was take it or leave it at $14/hour. Was fine with this since plenty of over time

Client Accounting and Reporting Specialist Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed 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).
Interview Question – How do you present/deliver difficult information to clients? Answer Question
Negotiation Details – This is an entry-level position, do not expect to negotiate.
Summer Intern - Undergraduate Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at BNY Mellon in May 2014.
Interview Details – Applied online, heard back from those that wanted an interview as well as those I was declined from. Interview process was very simple. 3 interviewers, mostly asked questions about my resume and talked about the current projects they were working on and if I would be able to contribute. Overall very easy. Interviewers were very laid back and personable.
Negotiation Details – I didn't negotiate but I think you can.
Financial Controller Interview (Negative Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed 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 Question – 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
Accounting Analyst Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 6 months - interviewed at BNY Mellon.
Interview Details – Applied and didn't get a response for nearly 6 months. After getting a phone call back they asked for me to reapply. See, often the Account Managers sit on a pile of resumes and sift through them when their workload is lighter in the middle of the month. Remember, if they bring you in they have to like you, because the majority of new hires are often brought in as temps and make their way into the company that way.
Interview Question – Why do you want to leave your old job? Why do you want to work here? Answer Question
Negotiation Details – There isnt!

Interview Details – Interview process was different than the normal process as I spoke directly with the hiring director.

They accepted my counter offer without issue.
