I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at BNY Mellon (London, England (UK)) in April 2015.
1st stage was face to face, not structured but friendly. It took 15 mins to find a room before we could start. 2nd stage was telephonic, structured and competency based. Was told i would get some feedback sooner, did not hear from the agency or BNYM.
- Why am i looking to leave my current place? Questions on stakeholder management. Answer Question

I applied online. The process took 5+ months – interviewed at BNY Mellon (London, England (UK)) in March 2015.
Online application + interview with the hiring managers. I had applied over 4 months ago and recently received a call inviting me in for an interview at their London office. The application itself was fairly straightforward and the interview process itself was very smooth- very good impression so far!
- What are you looking to get out of this internship? What are your strengths? What is your weakness? Talk me through your CV/skills/experience What can you tell us about BNY? I think the key here, is really understanding: (a) what they do as a business, and (b) what that particular division you are applying for does. I had a very brief job spec so I used that to work out what that division did, what services it covered and I also made sure I understood the organisation. Know where they are positioned in the market, what do they actually do and demonstrate that you understand it, demonstrate and understanding of the differences between investment services and investment management. IF you can show them that your research extended beyond the first page of their site/wiki it speaks a lot. Try to demonstrate what a "useful" intern you will be. If you're the type of intern who can demonstrate some knowledge and transferable skills you can pretty much hit the ground running with the coaching and support given to you on the programme and learn so much more about the organisation and the person supervising you will actually get a young pair of hands that is useful and not someone to babysit for 9 weeks and keep having to explain what asset servicing really means. Overall- I got a really good impression of the bank. The interviewers were very nice- don't take this to mean it is an easy interview- they are intelligent and are looking to challenge you. However it felt more natural and like they actually wanted to know me compared to previous interviews where I felt like they had already made up their mind about their ideal candidate and just weren't bothered to give me a real chance to prove myself.

Technical test followed by competency based questions - nothing too difficult. Questions tailored towards seeing you as an individual and how you fit into their organisational culture. Whatever the position , tailor your answer to an experience that is relevant to the role. Overall a very enjoyable experience where I gained much of an insight to the organisation

I applied online. The process took 2+ months – interviewed at BNY Mellon (London, England (UK)) in March 2015.
1st round was phone interview (20 people got to this stage out of 140 applicants), lasted 20 minutes ish. 2nd round was face to face at London office (lasted 45 minutes) Offer made 3 days later Both interviews were with the same person (my department head).
- Phone interview: Why this department (mine was a back office role) when you have a really mathematical background? Face to face interview: Fairly general chat about my background. Asked a bit about competitors and industry trend. Both interviews were very calm and casual. Unlike all the other interviews where I was either interviewed by HR or department head just read out a list of questions handed down from HR. They really want to know about you as a character rather than how much of a robot you are. Love the atmosphere of the entire application process ! Just make sure you know the role you are applying to and do quite a bit of research on the company. Answer Question

I applied online – interviewed at BNY Mellon.
I attended a one to one interviewer with a senior individual in the team. The interview was quite casual, not hugely formal. There was general talk about both my and the interviewers backgrounds and experience before the interviewer outlined what a successful candidate would be expected to do in the role.
- General background and experience questions. The interviewer previously worked for my current employer so asked me lots of questions about the people I work with some of whom he knew. 1 Answer

I applied online. The process took 4+ months – interviewed at BNY Mellon (London, England (UK)) in February 2015.
They took me into a conference room and proceeded to ask questions about my background, interests, and hobbies. Overall, it was a fairly relaxed atmosphere and they asked questions off the top of their head. No notes were taken. There wasn't much structure to both the internship they described (such as the training process and the actual jobs it entailed) and the interview itself. The company was slow to reply to emails as well.
- If your colleague didn't finish their tasks and there was a deadline coming up, would you finish it for them? Answer Question
