    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at State Street (Boston, MA) in November 2013.

    Interview

    Applied online, was contacted by a recruiter. They set up a phone interview. I was then invited to interview with 2 of the senior associates. They later gave me an offer. It was a pretty simple and to the point process. I think that having an employee referral is the easiest way to get hired.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at State Street (Quincy, MA) in November 2013.

    Interview

    I received a call wanting an interview and I replied with interest. About a week after the call, I received no information. I then contacted the recruiter that contacted me in the beginning asking for intel on the situation. They told me it's still in process and they will let me know. It took two weeks to set up the interview and the back round check. I didn't hear back for about a month and then I received an offer. The process seems to be quit long.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at State Street (Sacramento, CA).

    Interview

    The hiring process went pretty smoothly for me. I applied online for a few jobs and received a phone call a few weeks later setting up a phone interview the following week. I took the interview, mostly rating yourself on MS applications and things, and took a panel interview a week later. The panel interview was long (4 hours), but not too bad. I think they have since changed the process to be a phone interview and a two-on-one interveiw shortly after.

    Interview Questions

    • They had asked me to define a NAV (Net Asset Value) and variance and a few financial questions.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    No negotiation was involved.
