    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at State Street.

    Interview

    I applied through school, got an e-mail to schedule the interview couple of weeks later. Phone interview was easy with basic behavioral questions. Received the invitation for in-person interviews the same week. The in-person interview questions were also all behavioral. The staff was really friendly and nice, they made me feel very excited about joining the company. I received the offer a week after.

    Interview

    The interview process consisted of a phone interview, second round and a final round with a presentation and a series of interviews. Interviewers were really nice and mainly stuck with behavioral questions. HR at State Street, however, was the worst I have ever experienced.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at State Street.

    Interview

    HR recruiter contacted me via phone about my interests in the company. I gave her my preferences for open positions, and she told me she would call back the next day to schedule an appointment for both positions. She got back to me a week later (meanwhile, three other HR recruiters contacted me individually, not realizing I already had an HR recruiter handling my application). After about almost a month of phone calls and emails here and there, I finally went in for an interview. Interview itself was easy - generic behavioral questions and a few technical questions about mutual funds. HR recruiter gave me the wrong start time for my first day at work, as well as the wrong start time for my first day of official training. Apparently, this same recruiter made the same mistake with another employee that came in before me. Bottomline: HR recruiter made this process more arduous and stressful than needed.

    Negotiation

    Non-negotiable. Entry-level pay is terrible, but I took it for the experience.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter after filling out an online application. Wąs asked to schedule a phone interview. The phone interview took about 20 minutes, standard questions about previous work and school. After the phone interview I was contacted to come in for a in person interview. I was interviewed by 2 associates from the department that was adding an intern to there team. Standard questions once again but more in depth, more questions about school work than anything.
