Fund Administrator Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Ireland, IN
Anonymous Interview Candidate in Ireland, IN
Application Details

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at State Street in May 2013.

Interview Details

Telephone interview: competency based, asked about my previous experience my education and about state street. Face to face: similar however I was presented with a test me before the interview which kind of unsettled me a bit( I was not expecting this as HR person said it was just going to be a verbal competency based etc.. interview) this was probably the most difficult part of the interview, gave me 10-15 mins to answer questions which consisted of economics and accounting calculations.
Overall long process.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at State Street in January 2011.

    Interview Details

    The interview process is situational based interviewing. So, they ask questions like- tell me about a situation in which your supervisor told you there was a problem with your work, and what did you do about it. Also within my department the interviews are all scheduled for an hour so attempt to reach that threshold to have a good interview. Also, there will be two people interviewing your and they will typically tag team and alternate asking questions. Lastly the two people will likely be of different levels with one typically being a manager and the second person being an officer or above within the department, not specifically within the reporting structure of the position being hired.

    Interview Questions
    • Tell me about a time where you had a coworker that was difficult to get along with. How did you handle the situation?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I was not able to negotiate very much, but there is typically room for negotiation based on skill and experience level. Also, I was able to secure a signing bonus to counter an offer that I had from my previous employer to continue to work there.
