    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5+ monthsinterviewed at State Street in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was first contacted by State Street in February for a official 1st round telephone interview in March for their 2 month internship program. They phoned me 2 weeks later telling me it was postponed and that I will hear from them again soon. Another 1 month (April) later I had to follow up and they informed me that my application was forwarded to the 6 month internship program starting in June. I was initially very happy but then by the month of May, they didn't get back to me. I always had to follow up with them. Really very unprofessional recruitment process and very misleading. Phone interview never materialised

    State Street Summer Intern Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5+ monthsinterviewed at State Street in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    Submitted a CV online, contacted by the HR based outside London by phone, then contacted by a London based HR specialised in an area of my choosing. I didn't get the face-to-face interview with a hiring manager.

    1st phone interview with the generalist HR: State Street contacts you out of blue for the first quick 10 mins chat about why you want to work at State Street and what you want to do there. It doesn't matter if you are outside in a pub having a drink, you still need to be able to answer these questions.

    2nd phone interview with the specialist HR: You will be informed of the date and the time of the interview well in advance. 20 - 30 mins chat about your CV, what you want to do, where you see yourself in 5 years, describe an example when you had to work in a team or persuade others, what are your strengths.

    If the phone interview is successful AND there is a suitable position for you at the firm, you will be asked to attend the face-to-face interview. I didn't get that.

    The whole process is pleasant. The 2 HR I spoke with were nice and professional. One thing I would say is State Street like many other firms do not contact those who are unsuccessful. So if you don't hear from them 2 weeks after the telephone interview(s), you are rejected. There is absolutely no point in waiting any longer. I would assume that I am unsuccessful if I am not contacted by them 2 weeks after a telephone interview.

    The summer intern application deadline was 1st Jan. 2013 (I think). I was contacted by the general HR by the end of Feb and then by the specialist HR in April. During the process, you will be kept in the dark for some time. Do you put all your eggs in one basket. Just apply to other financial institutions as you wait for their response.
