Quantitative Analyst Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 1 week - interviewed at State Street.
Interview Details – phone interview: started with a brief description of the role, the culture,... Then moved on to a lot of technical questions (statistics, time series and programming). The questions were fairly basic but you need to brush up on these subjects if you are a little rusty.
I got the results really quickly after that
