The process took a day - interviewed at State Street in August 2011.
Interview Details – New business opportunity generated several new positions. Very friendly and the head of the team conducted the interview. Relaxed yet a definite information sharing session. Come with your industry knowledge at your finger-tips, don't expect to just fluff it. Entry level positions used to include full training but no longer. This is the major sticking point with folks arriving on the floor - no consistency with the hiring process and it is either feast or famine. Perhaps laying off half the HR Department wasn't such a good move several years ago.
Reason for Declining – The interview was for a position that I was unqualified for. They would have hired me but I knew it wasn't right so pulled self from contention.
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at State Street in November 2009.
Interview Details –
1. HR called and requested I come in for an interview.
2. After some phone tag it was scheduled.
3.1 - Met with hiring manager and select staff one on one for a total of 2 hours.
3.2 - Met with hiring manager and select addtional staff
3.3 - Met with Managing Directors (2)
4 - Offer made
The company gave me a very positive impression as a whole. I understand that operations is not where people thrive, if you will. If you are able to grab a job in one of more desirable divisions do it. The people are bright and motivated.
Interview Question – What is an example where you have used measures to dictate the outcome of a situation? shortterm and longterm. Answer Question
Negotiation Details –
Yes. I was employed so I did have leverage to use.
I was very direct in my questions. Will you cover lost tution reimbursement from my previous company? What is the max of the salary range? What can you give me as a signing bonus to offset my deffered comp?
The process took 3+ months - interviewed at State Street in February 2012.
Interview Details – Placed CV on line and it was fished by State Street. contacted by HR by phone then called in for a competency based interview. The two people interviewing were very relaxed, but professional.They made it easy to talk and didn't mind when I wanted clarification. I was then offered the job, but they took ages to do checks and references! I'm glad I wasn't desperate for an immediate salary.
