Analyst Interview

Analyst
London, England (UK)

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at BNY Mellon in June 2011.

Interview Details – Email CV and Cover Letter. Interview was not Technical. It was more related to character fit, how I thought, presented myself, argued my points and how easy going I was. Very little was related to how much I had researched about BNY Mellon and the specific division I was applying to. It was more of a discussion than an interview.

Interview Question – In the countries you have been to, what is the most important factor needed to promote growth. This question had arised from the discussion.   Answer Question

Intern Interview

Intern
London, England (UK)

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at BNY Mellon in April 2013.

Interview Details – This is a first round interview with HR so the atmosphere is extremely friendly. Generally they only need to know who you are and what do you know about BNY etc. Even if you can't talk much, don't worry as the interviewer will talk a lot (introducing the job, the structure of BNY...)

Very basic questions, nothing really tricky. They will try their best to encourage and praise you.

Interview Question – Nothing   Answer Question

Software Developer Interview

Software Developer
London, England (UK)

I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at BNY Mellon in April 2012.

Interview Details – First a take home test to write a cellular automata in Scala. Seems like the key to passing this was just not scanning the entire grid of cells at each iteration i.e. just the adjacent cells.

After submitting the code I was invited to a face to face with team lead and senior developer for informal chat , then 1-1 with with another senior developer for review of the take home test and more pencil and paper puzzles and basic programming e.g. write a function to recognize palindromes. Finally 1-1 with HR examining 6 areas of competencies. was about 3 hours.

Interview Question – Puzzle about farming was worded in a confusing way that didn't make sense to me, Lost interest at that stage.   Answer Question
