Application

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at BNY Mellon in September 2009.

Interview

About a week after I applied for the position I received a phone call from the Accounting department wanting to schedule an interview; this was despite the fact that I had received an email from the HR department notifying me that I had not been selected for the position.

An interview was scheduled for the following week. The interview consisted of two panel interviews with other members of the department. Questions ranged from background information to success stories.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at BNY Mellon (Houston, TX) in April 2010.

    Interview

    Was initially contact by HR and an interview was scheduled. I believe they had not looked at my resume thoroughly. The interview seemed disintered in me. Did not have a copy of my resume on her desk. Did not ask any questions of me and terminated interview very early. May have been that the interviewer was expected some younger.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at BNY Mellon (New York, NY).

    Interview

    It was an open house interview, where a whole bunch of applicants showed up all dressed up nicely and many appeared to be recent college graduates. They were looking to hire a lot of people to three different dept, namely Mutual funds, unit investment trust and fund accountant. This did not feel like an interview. It was mainly a one sided conversation stating three different areas needed people and will start right away once you are hired.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at BNY Mellon (Pittsburgh, PA) in May 2010.

    Interview

    Interviewed right after graduating college, for an entry level job. After briefly meeting with the recruiter, met with the manager for the department and a supervisor. VERY glad to find out how informal the interview itself was, as they didn't ask the standard "what are your strengths and weaknesses" type questions. She stated that it would be more conversation like and instead they focused on my resume and I was asked to explain things I was involved in, etc. Very straightforward about what the job consisted of and that it would be semi-repetitive. Answered questions I had very thoroughly. Overall, a very simple and non-stressful experience.

    I applied online. I interviewed at BNY Mellon.

    Interview

    Structured. Interviewers gave more insight into the role. However stalled on giving feedback which was disappointing . It was a learning experience and would prefer to take the positives and learn from the experience.
