I applied through a recruiter and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at BNY Mellon in October 2012.

Interview Details – Multiple phone interviews lasting hours where I eventually had to develop and demonstrate an application. Humiliating experience for someone with decades of experience.

Interview Question – Prove that you know technology you have over ten years experience in by writing code while we watch.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Don't take it. Increases are way below the inflation rate.

The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at BNY Mellon in October 2010.

Interview Details – Consisted of a phone interview. Next step was a 1 hour personal interview. After completeing the personal interview I returned for a short 30 minute interview with a EVP. Final interview was with the recruiter that initially contacted me. We spent considerable time goign back and forth on salary offers and other benefits.
the interview with the EVp was a complete sham and a waste of time for both of us.

The process took 2 months - interviewed at BNY Mellon in August 2010.

Interview Details – Most processes start with a phone screen by the recruiter and if you pass that part, you get to meet the hiring manager in person which happened for me. The hiring manager usually spends up to one hour with you and gives you an overview of the job. In my case, I received a realistic job preview which was appreciated. The RJP conveyed that it would be in my best interest to not consider future employment with this firm.

Interview Question – Why do you want to leave you current company?   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – Kind of cheap
