    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at BNY Mellon (Pittsburgh, PA).

    Interview

    Got referred from a friend, about 30 minutes statistics questions, this was my first phone interview, I felt like I answered most of the question, but failed in a few, and in one of the questions asking why AIC and BIC are better than R square, at that time I was thought about adjusted R square, and no idea of which criterion better than the other, and I didn't want to waste time there, and answered "I don't know, I never think about that", later I got that he didn't like the answer "I never think about this", this is a failure experience, actually I really want to get this position

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at BNY Mellon.

    Interview

    Was contacted by a recruiter through LinkedIn. Initial phone screen (30 mins) with 2 managers. Went over experience and the questions were directly related to what was listed on the resume. Second round with 5 managers (3 managers at a time), went over work experience, was given a "paper test" with full stack questions (JS, OO Concepts, SQL). Very laid back interview. Conversation focused on my previous work experience and what I can contribute to the team.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at BNY Mellon (Pittsburgh, PA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I sent my resume to a third party (oxford solutions) and they were able to set me up with an interview. The interview went very well, I felt like I was simply having a conversation with them. Make sure to ask a lot of questions because they seemed to enjoy that I was very interested in learning a lot about the company from their perspective.

    UI Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at BNY Mellon (New York, NY) in March 2017.

    Interview

    A phone screen was set up in which I was asked general questions about web technologies, but no concrete questions about solving any problems.

    Each of the six people with whom I interviewed was cordial, respectful, and professional. It was a very pleasurable experience. In fact, the interviews went over by an hour, making the entire process a 4-hour on-site interview.

    About two business days after the phone screen, a 3-hour, on-site interview was setup for the BNY Mellon location on Barclay St in Lower Manhattan. I interviewed with six people: three 1:1 type interviews and three phone interviews.

    Private Banker Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at BNY Mellon in March 2017.

    Interview

    Unprofessional, unorganized, apathetic of one's time during the interview process, no work/life balance. If the interview process is in any indication of what it would be like to work for this institution I would be weary to recommend any potential candidates after my experience. Additionally, the presence of work/life balance appears to be non-existent.

    Interview Questions

    • Many redundant questions regarding current position/future potential, met with 10 individuals during the interview process. I wouldn't say any of the questions were difficult, rather unnecessary allocation of interviewees time.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at BNY Mellon (Pittsburgh, PA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I was asked to take a HackerRank test after doing that a phone interview was scheduled. The phone interview was a joke two out of three people I was scheduled to interview with showed up and the third didn't. (Sadly I found out during the interview he was there in his office but I guess he just didn't have time for a scheduled interview...) It was awkward to the point it was embarrassing not for me but for them and they said as much when I asked. Afterward I was contacted by several other people from BNY Mellon but they just seemed like they didn't have their stuff together.
