    Senior Corporate Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Century City, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at BNY Mellon (Century City, CA) in December 2017.

    Interview

    I initially applied on LinkedIn for the senior corporate recruiter position. I first did a phone screen with my initial recruiter, who was very nice and informative. This led to a second phone interview with one of the recruiting managers. The interview went great, was very conversational and then she wanted me to interview in person with another recruiting manager in the Century City, California office. Before I went to the in person interview, I spoke with the woman I interviewed with to lay down expectations to prepare me for my in person interview. She also said to contact her after the interview to debrief with her and let her know how everything went.
    I was very excited about the position going into the 3rd round interview. So I met with the manager and he was more direct with his questions, and had more of a serious demeanor. He started to loosen up toward the end, I answered every single question and thought it went great. At the end of it, he said that my recruiter would contact me. I told them whether it’s good or bad news, I would like to here feedback, which would help my professional development. So I reached out to the manager I interviewed with initially, and she went ghost on me. So then I reached out to my initial recruiter and days past by and finally she said that the position is put on hold because they are changing the job criteria.
    I asked if it were possible to get any feedback on my interview and no response.
    As a recruiter, I was very disappointed in their lack of communication skills. I like to treat my clients the way I would want to be treated, and going ghost on someone is unprofessional and rude.

    Business Systems Analyst Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at BNY Mellon (New York, NY) in November 2017.

    Interview

    I got a message from a 20-something year old who did a phone interview. A bit of telephone tag over a week or so because he does not answer his phone. It only accepts messages and outbound calls. We scheduled an interview with 3 people who interviewed me, one after the other. The most senior had a tablet - looked like she was checking boxes bc she wasn't typing. The next one, a tax attorney, didn't have anything with her. The third and most junior, tax technical person, only had a copy of my resume. He asked typical questions. I didn't always understand him. For instance, when he referred to "the resource," he meant me/a human. In my mind (outside of spy novels), a resource is reference material. Otherwise, the interview was fine. They promised to make a decision right away. I have not heard from anyone. I called the recruiter who interviewed me and emailed him. I also left a message for one person on the team. No one had the courtesy to respond. I called a different HR person who called me a few hours before the interview asking if I could come earlier "to accomodate my schedule." The first interviewer told me that she had a family emergency. So this had nothing to do with my schedule. Anyway, he hung up on me because he doesn't deal with candidates. I called back. He said "he cannot talk to me." I have no idea why people don't just say I wasn't selected. I figured that out already. They told me they will make their decision before Thanksgiving and it's already a week and a half after Thanksgiving. Common Courtesy is a dead art. The first lady was more concerned about telling me about all the powerful people in my organization that she knows. I checked with the people she name-dropped. They either don't know her, or barely know her. Lying does not look good!!! In summary, the actual interviews were professional. Looking back at it, they outright lied 4 times: 1 - reason for wanting me to come in early, the guy doesn't deal with candidates, knowing the people they name-dropped, giving me an answer bf Thanksgiving.
    Being the one between a family emergency and Thanksgiving, I understand that they want someone else. I don't understand unprofessionalism. That is unacceptable. For me, being a professional means putting myself in the other person's shoes.

    Interview Questions

    • The first lady asked how I would handle someone with a bad attitude. I should say that she had a family emergency. Her head was not in the interview. The guy asked what decisions I made - he did not understand my answer. Tell me about yourself. Basic boring questions.   Answer Question

    Technology Leadership Program Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at BNY Mellon (Palo Alto, CA) in November 2017.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter prior to the Grace Hopper Conference and had my first interview there. It was a 15 minute behavioral interview. Shortly after the conference I received an invitation to complete a coding challenge. The challenge was 90 minutes in length and fairly difficult. I week or so later I was invited for an onsite interview.

    The onsite interview at the Silicon Valley Innovation Center comprised of breakfast, a couple speakers that spoke to the group of us interviewing (about 9), two 45 minute interviews (behavioral and technical), and lunch. The technical interview was a bit awkward as it was done on Hacker Rank while sitting a couple feet away from the interviewer who told me I didn't need to explain what I was doing and just to code. Overall I liked the welcoming environment at the innovation center and how personal the whole process was.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at BNY Mellon (New York, NY) in November 2017.

    Interview

    I had an awesome experience with respect to the interview process. My interview was more of a conversation rather than feeling like I was under a spotlight being hammered with questions until I failed. It gave me a great feel for the collaborative culture that my new team has and made me comfortable making a transition from my prior employer.

    Interview Questions

    • We did cover some of the basic skills questions including how my prior experience applied to this role. Questions centered around how I could add value to the company and role instead of if I memorized answers to specific technical questions.   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at BNY Mellon (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I was invited for interview for a contract role via recruting agency. As I was told the role supposed to be for 6+ months in Jersey City, NJ, but during interview with hiring manager(who for some reason was project manager) I found out something different- the role is for one assignment only and location is NYC. During interview I got a feeling that manager simply trying to get more information about how to solve the issue that contractor was supposed to be doing, but from someone else. Although interview went well, next day recruiter told me that location for the role all of a sudden changed and moved to Pennsylvania, which I understandably couldnt accept.
    It was very unpleasant to figure out that I was simply someone who was taken advantage on and such well known company allow such dishonest things to happened.
