Fund Accountant, Associate I Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in South Boston, MA
Anonymous Interview Candidate in South Boston, MA
Application Details

I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at State Street in September 2014.

Interview Details

Applied online and heard back in about 3 days to set up the interview. The process felt very robotic, two managers each with the same S.S form with questions. Never deviated from their prepared questions even after they realized I had already answered some.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at State Street.

    Interview Details

    They asked what interested me about the job and why I wanted the job. The questions were pretty standard and there weren't any questions that I would say caught me off guard. The interview last for about twenty minutes. Once the interview was completed, I got a call a few days later with an offer.

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeksinterviewed at State Street.

    Interview Details

    Took about a month to finally set up an interview, had to interview with 3 individuals. First person I was suppose to meet with had something else to do so I met with the second interviewer first. Took 1 hour to basically waste time until the person that was suppose to interview me third showed up. It was all a little disorganized, and stressed me out a little bit.

    Negotiation Details
    Initial offer was very straight forward with standard starting salary with little room to negotiate. the salary was a bit lower than expected but i was reassured that there would be over-time and bonus opportunities however this did not turn out to be accurate in my group. over-time opportunities are definitely available in some groups but not all.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at State Street in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    First interview is over the phone with human resources. The first interview last about 30 minutes and consisted mostly of behavioral questions. Most of the questions were stated as, "can you think of a time when..." The human resources interviewer was very nice and professional. If this interview goes well, candidates are invited on site for a second interview with two officers. The second interview consisted of more behavioral questions with the addition of questions about State Street Corp.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at State Street in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    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.
