    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at State Street (Boston, MA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Very regular questions, some behavioral and a few simple technique questions. It was a two-round 30 minutes interview with the heads of the team. The managers weren't overly aggressive and they were rather nice to talk to. The interview was at State Street's new building so that area is a little ghetto and not really easy to find. You have to walk a certain distance.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at State Street (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    Info Session and Networking event that was a waste of time honestly. Met with a few managers who you most likely would not even be working for. Overall they just wanted to make sure you were able to speak and look like a professional. Then went back for a 2v1 interview where I answered basic questions and got an offer a week later

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at State Street (Boston, MA) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Got contacted by a recruiter after applying online and got asked some basic questions verifying the info I put online. Took a while after that to get an interview (2 months). I was offered interviews for several different positions and set up an appointment for an interview the following week. The interview itself was very straight forward and entirely behavioral/ experience questions in a two on one setting. The questions were draw from a generic sheet but managers had discretion as to which questions to ask. After the interview it took two weeks to hear back with an offer. As a side note there is some disorganization between recruiters. I on multiple occasions was contacted by other State Street recruiters who were not aware of the fact I was already in contact. That being said my primary recruiter was always quick to respond to emails and calls (when i had questions).

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at State Street (Boston, MA) in November 2014.

    Interview

    The current employer in the program is the interviewer. The process is very standard, as well as the question. The whole process lasted for 30 mins, and I could tell they have a large base of candidates. When the interview processed close to 30 min, the guy told me he had another interview appointment with another candidate, coming right next.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ monthsinterviewed at State Street (Boston, MA) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Extremely long and very inefficient process. It took me longer than 5 months. I went through a first round interview, which went extremely well, and was told to expect a 2nd round call back. After following up, I found out that the details of my 1st round had been lost & I had to re-do the 1st round interview with another interviewer. Again, was told to expect a 2nd round call back after a good interview, but didn't receive a 2nd interview despite proceeding to the 2nd round. Very inconsistent process, extremely inefficient, and company shows no consideration for candidates' time.
