Application

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at BNY Mellon (King of Prussia, PA) in July 2016.

Met with the manager who was a real laid by and nice guy. Pretty much every question was a behavioral question to see if I was a good fit for the team.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at BNY Mellon (Seattle, WA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    A quick initial phone interview with HR. Followed by an hour long in-person interview with the hiring manager. The in-person interview consisted of approximately 40 questions, and varied between technical and behavioral questions. It was difficult to make dialogue with the interviewers because they were reading the questions like a list, which made the interview less fluid / natural. Overall it was a good experience, though.

    Interview

    Very welcoming . Met with 3 managers followed by the VP of the department. All very friendly. Asked basic background questions and very thoroughly about my resume, such as what you did and how it would help you in this role. Overall not very a difficult interview. Just come prepared knowing you resume in and out.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at BNY Mellon in February 2015.

    Interview

    Pretty straight forward. Simple questions. Ask a little about you and your strengths and what you know about the position. Just know your job responsibilities and do your homework. Be sure to know what NAV is because that is a fundamental part of the job. They are more interested in finding someone that can learn new info and be able to retain that info than your work experience so be trainable and have an open mind. Overall an easy interview if you show your prepared and interested in learning more about the job.

    Interview

    Interview process took extremely long. Applied to the position through the career website and got an interview a month later. Interview went extremely well (5 different people). I got offered the position a month after the interview took place. They took too long to offer me the position, by the time they did I had already accepted a position elsewhere.
