    Application Details

    interviewed at State Street in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    I've been working for the company for awhile, so this interview was internal and very informal. Managers I've interviewed for were interested in true experiences, what I have delivered in my career, and what extra values I've provided to my teams. At state street it can get easy to get into a routine, so managers are interested to see what kind of new processes and ideas one can bring to the team to make it better.

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at State Street in December 2009.

    Interview Details

    It was incredibly standard.

    Tell us about yourself, what are your strengths, weakness, how do you handle stress, are you technologically saavy. Be prepared to give an example

    Generally speaking the culture is laid back, but they really enjoy pomp and circumstance.

    The younger employees are for the most part very educated, and know the business better then middle management

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency – interviewed at State Street in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    Very short interview. Two interviewers-one was Project manager and other was business Analyst. I was called at 4pm but they were late to start the interview. Both of them were welcoming but did not ask any technical questions. The work culture felt independent and exciting

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at State Street in December 2011.

    Interview Details

    I was interviewed for another position in the same company. I had a 1:1 interview with my new manager, then i got a chance for a group interview from my manager's manager (in Sydney) and my matrix manager (in Boston) via video. On the same day, they also interviewed another candidate for the same position. I got the offer finally, I heard from my manager my English skills did help me to win the offer compared with my competitor. (the competitor cannot understand some of their questions in English)
    My advice will be, if you want to apply for a position need to work with some native English speakers, while English is not your mother tongue, good English skill will help you to get the position.

    Interview Questions
    • The question themselves are not problem, they only ask what I did in my previous position. The problem for me is that English is my second language and two interviewer and their Sydney and Boston accent.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There is no negotiation on my salary, my salary is the same as before as I applied position in same company with same title. But the managers did describes the future opportunity, as the team is newly setup and I am the second one to join the team.
