    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at BNY Mellon in November 2013.

    Interview

    Submitted resume (no cover letter) through their website. Got a call about two months later from an initial recruiter setting up the interview. Went in for the interview which lasted for about 90 minutes. On the itinerary (yes there was one) it said that the manager of the group would meet with me third and last so as I finished up with the second group I sat there like an idiot waiting for him. Obviously ten seconds later I realized that wasn't happening because the interviewers were holding the door for me. In any case, the interview was very formal and the two rounds were on the same day going through standard corporate questions on a sheet. There were about 20-30 questions altogether.

    Interview

    I interviewed beginning of June of 2007. There were 2 rounds of interviews on the same day. First interview began with HR manager that lasted for about 30 minutes. She talked mostly about the company/department and asked a couple of simple behavioral questions. She than brought me upstairs to the next round of interviews where I met with the supervisor and manager i would be working with. They were really nice and the interview was more like a good conversation. A couple of usual behavior questions where asked. The interview probably lasted about 45 mins.
