    IVC Agent Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Manchester, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at BNY Mellon (Manchester, England (UK)) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I was headhunted and invited for an interview without ever receiving a job description. On the interview that it turned out that I wasn't notified of basic requirements for the position. The panel seemed very unprofessional, were hardly able to answer my questions about the company and I never heard back from them, even though they said they will notify me even if I'm unsuccessful.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at BNY Mellon (Manchester, England (UK)) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online in mid- October. Had a phone interview around early November and was scheduled for a face-to face interview. This consisted of competency questions as well as general questions such as what do you currently do? etc. Overall it was an easy interview, some of the questions were slightly different to what I expected but nonetheless, they were answerable. The atmosphere was very relaxed. The interviewer took notes whilst I answered the questions. The interviewer was really lovely and was also very encouraging. I asked for feedback and the feedback given was constructive. I was informed of the outcome around December.
