    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at State Street.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a recruiter after filling out an online application. Wąs asked to schedule a phone interview. The phone interview took about 20 minutes, standard questions about previous work and school. After the phone interview I was contacted to come in for a in person interview. I was interviewed by 2 associates from the department that was adding an intern to there team. Standard questions once again but more in depth, more questions about school work than anything.

    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.

    Negotiation Details
    Non-negotiable. Entry-level pay is terrible, but I took it for the experience.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at State Street.

    Interview Details

    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. The interviewing manager had a clear understanding of what the role that needed to be filled required from their candidate. I walked away thinking that if I made the transition, I would not be disappointed.

    Interview Details

    Only on campus interviews, was given the job a few days later. They interviewed about 10 students for the position. All behavioral questions so very easy to prepare for. There were two HR reps who interviewed me so I was not able to talk with someone who would be working in my area.

    Fund Accountant I Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    They called me pretty quickly after i applied online. the recruiters were very helpful in establishing contact with specific teams or groups who were interested with me. The questions were read from a sheet that seemed very generic. As long as you talk about being a good teammate and a good co-worker, should get you into a good spot. The process was really good as I met with different teams all on the same day so multiple groups could meet with me instead of me coming in different day and times to meet them.

    There was a phone screen interview as well as an on site interview at the Sacramento location.
