    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at State Street in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied through college recruiting job posting. Then proceeded to send in resume and cover letter directly to listed contact person via email. Arranged a phone interview via email with a member of the program and had my phone interview with that person. Phone interview lasted for about 30 minutes and consisted of behavioral questions starting with a traditional "walk me through your resume" opener. All in all, the interview was not too difficult and very professional in tone.

    - Why are you interested in Global Markets?

    HR is a complete joke here. Extremely understaffed and the interview process as a result is incredibly slow moving. Was contacted about 2nd round one month after first-- this round is with someone in the group you're interviewing for and is more technical/markets based.

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at State Street in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    Interview consisted of standard questions about background, relevant experience, and personal strengths and weaknesses. Details about the program, salary, location and duration were also provided. Interviewer actually called half an hour earlier than scheduled time for phone interview and that caught me off guard.
