    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at State Street.

    Interview Details

    Only on campus interviews, was given the job a few days later. They interviewed about 10 students for the position. All behavioral questions so very easy to prepare for. There were two HR reps who interviewed me so I was not able to talk with someone who would be working in my area.

    Fund Accountant I Interview

    Interview Details

    They called me pretty quickly after i applied online. the recruiters were very helpful in establishing contact with specific teams or groups who were interested with me. The questions were read from a sheet that seemed very generic. As long as you talk about being a good teammate and a good co-worker, should get you into a good spot. The process was really good as I met with different teams all on the same day so multiple groups could meet with me instead of me coming in different day and times to meet them.

    There was a phone screen interview as well as an on site interview at the Sacramento location. I applied through my University's resource page and was contacted a few weeks after submitting the application. The interview was not bad. As long as you know basic accounting functions and are proficient with microsoft suite applications, you will do fine.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at State Street.

    Interview Details

    Info Session and Networking event that was a waste of time honestly. Met with a few managers who you most likely would not even be working for. Overall they just wanted to make sure you were able to speak and look like a professional. Then went back for a 2v1 interview where I answered basic questions and got an offer a week later

    It was fine interview for current position was a formality as I knew the hiring manager. I've found the process to be very standardized in the past with a generic form to follow when interviewing new hires.
