    Summer Intern Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Kansas City, MO
    Anonymous Employee in Kansas City, MO
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at State Street in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    The company recruited through my university. The first step was a phone interview with HR from California. The questions asked were not difficult; she asked about my favorite/least favorite classes, what my strengths/weaknesses were, etc. The second interview was at the Kansas City office. Each person interviewing for an internship was seated at a table with 2 managers from the company. The managers asked behavioral questions that weren't too difficult. They were very conversational and friendly. Overall, pretty low-stress interview process.

    Interview Questions

    Fund Accountant, Associate I Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Kansas City, MO
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Kansas City, MO
    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 1 week - interviewed at State Street in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    The interview was pretty standard. I was asked all the cliche' interview questions that some redundant middle management goon reads off a sheet. The had 15% turnover yearly when I was there so they basically have a revolving door for employees. Very easy to get a job there especially if you know a current employee. They actually have to give bonuses to employees to get them to refer friends.

    • Just google pointless interview questions and you will have a list of everything they ask.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There was none, employees are like livestock to this company.
