    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at State Street in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    I had a phone interview in which the interviewer briefly went over my resume. I then went to the office where I did 2 sets of interviews, with 2 interviewers on each panel. The questions were all standard behavioral questions, nothing too complicated. 2 weeks late I got a call with an offer.

    Interview Questions
    • Most questions were standard behavioral questions. None of them stuck out to me as difficult, however they were very by the book in what they wanted. Be prepared to be detailed when describing your actions in certain situations, as well as letting the interview know what you were able to take away from each situation.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I was not able to negotiate. The starting salary was set at $35,000.

    30 minute phone screen asking some basic behavioral questions, e.g. tell me a time you had to present data that people relied on. Then an in person interview: Two 2:1 interviews back to back, asking basic behavioral/situational questions, e.g. tell me about a time you struggled to meet deadlines.

What is a mutual fund?

    Interview Details

    No communication. Very back and forth with too much time in between responses. Asked two months after their initial response back if I could get the internship. Recruiter said sure, offered me an internship the next day. Pretty unprofessional.
