Application Details

I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at State Street.

Interview Details

Started with a phone interview with HR. Very basic questions - what is a mutual fund? What do you know about State Street?
Second interview was with group Vice President and group officer. There were a lot of situational questions to see how you think and problem solve.

Interview Questions
  • All questions were pretty standard - nothing off the wall. The interview process was designed to get a feel for your personality and problem solving methodology.   Answer Question
Negotiation Details
I was able to negotiate. They stated that the company does not negotiate, but with the help of this site, I was able to get a bump in pay after stating positive attributes. I thought over the original offer and didn't accept immediately.

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    They contacted me after I submitted my application online. I was due for a phone screen appointment that lasted about 45 minutes. At the end of the phone screen, ask them about what the next steps in the hiring process entails; and they may schedule an open house appointment for you. A confirmation email for the open house was received, containing topics that I should review: specific items from job duties, company background, etc.

    The open house was schedule two weeks later for me. There was an hour of overview about the firm as well as mingling with other competitors. Afterward, you will be called to separate rooms for two sessions of in-person interviews (I had two interviewers per session). They were about an hour long each and consisted of behavioral questions as well as technical information you should have researched about.
