    Professional Development Program Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Boston, MA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ monthsinterviewed at State Street (Boston, MA) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Extremely long and very inefficient process. It took me longer than 5 months. I went through a first round interview, which went extremely well, and was told to expect a 2nd round call back. After following up, I found out that the details of my 1st round had been lost & I had to re-do the 1st round interview with another interviewer. Again, was told to expect a 2nd round call back after a good interview, but didn't receive a 2nd interview despite proceeding to the 2nd round. Very inconsistent process, extremely inefficient, and company shows no consideration for candidates' time.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at State Street (Boston, MA) in November 2013.

    Interview

    When I showed up to the interview they were unprepared and had to scramble for someone to conduct it. I ended up interviewing with my current boss and although I have become used to his very present Chinese accent over time, during the interview I had NO clue what he was saying. He spoke very fast and it was hard to keep asking, "what did you say," throughout the interview, while trying to give a good first impression.
