Very Easy Interview
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at State Street in July 2013.
Interview Details – I applied for this position randomly and used my previous experience for behavioral questions. Overall I only had one interview and had an offer within a couple of hours.
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 days - interviewed at State Street in October 2012.
Interview Details – The interview I had with my now current boss was great. I was asked straightforward questions about my experience and felt incredibly comfortable asking my own. We discussed the role at large; what my key responsibilities would be as well as how these responsibilities contributed to the group. I was incredibly aware of what I was walking into.
However, my HR rep was the worst. The person was incredibly closed off and rude. Had I interviewed with that person instead of my boss, I would never have accepted the position. That HR rep could stand to take a few courses in salemanship as well as a few lessons in common courtesy and decency.
Interview Question – All of the questions were pretty straightforward. I was given the job description in advance so I was able to prepare. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Non-existent. The HR rep who was supposed to help faciliate was more of a road block than anything.
Interviewed at State Street
Interview Details – You will have to be prepared to be quizzed on some basic accounting knowledge. Usually it's fairly simple and easy. Once you pass quiz, you will be brought to meet the department directors and start the interview process. However, if you are failing the quiz and you probably will only get to meet with the HR personnel and you will be sent home for follow up. That most likely means that they just turned you down from the job selection.
Interview Question – I personally don't think that there are any type of questions that are difficult. Again, the quiz contains very simple accounting concept which everyone should know from college. Sometimes they may ask you questions more specifically about how you understand the tax adjustment concepts etc. Answer Question
