    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at State Street.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a member of the Talent Acquisition Team and they gave a brief screening and then setup an interview with me for the following week.

    The interview was done by two current employees. The interview started with a brief description of what the two employees have done while at State Street. Then I was asked to go through my resume and describe everything on it. That was followed by a few situational questions. Which finally was followed by them giving me the opportunity to ask them any questions I had.

    I current am waiting to hear back from the HR team on any following steps.

    Overall it was a quick process but a good one to say the least.

    Client Operations Administrative Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at State Street.

    Interview Details

    HR recruiter contacted me via phone about my interests in the company. I gave her my preferences for open positions, and she told me she would call back the next day to schedule an appointment for both positions. She got back to me a week later (meanwhile, three other HR recruiters contacted me individually, not realizing I already had an HR recruiter handling my application). After about almost a month of phone calls and emails here and there, I finally went in for an interview. Interview itself was easy - generic behavioral questions and a few technical questions about mutual funds. HR recruiter gave me the wrong start time for my first day at work, as well as the wrong start time for my first day of official training. Apparently, this same recruiter made the same mistake with another employee that came in before me. Bottomline: HR recruiter made this process more arduous and stressful than needed.

    Interviewing manager was very professional and charismatic. Asked about my current position and provided a detailed understanding of the role they were looking to fill.
