    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at BNY Mellon (New York Mls, NY) in July 2008.

    Interview

    My staffing agency sent my high test scores to BNYM's HR department. After a 5 minute meeting with an HR associate, I was asked to come back to interview specifically with a department. There, I interviewed with 3 people, over 2 days. An offer arrived almost immediately thereafter, but negotiations took about 2 weeks. They were not able to meet me halfway, but did meet my salary demands 1/3 of the way between their initial offer and my asking.

    The work culture is rather laid back in most Sr. Admin positions throughout the company. However, if you are anywhere near competent, be prepared for a very frustrating stay -- instead of replacing the lazy, incompetent and self-serving, management almost company-wide seems to favor the practice of shifting disproportionate amounts of work onto the few competent employees they do hire, so that these few either grow disgruntled and leave, or learn to feign incompetence in order to play the system. BEWARE!

    Negotiation

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at BNY Mellon in January 2009.

    Interview

    Process moved along reasonably quickly, from the date I emailed my resume to the date they first contacted you. Good interview with both people I would have been working with. One asked more detailed questions than the other, but between them, I think they got what they needed from me, and I was able to find out what I needed as well. In-person interviews were about 20-30 minutes long. Phone interview by HR was about 10 minutes.
