Application

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at State Street (Boston, MA) in November 2015.

Interview

This interview was behavioral and over the phone. I was interviewed by two people at separate times. They asked some general questions, but most required you explaining a time that you did something, like a time you used data to find patterns and come to a conclusion about something.

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at State Street (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    Applied online. Phone interview, then interviewed with 2 VPs. It was a pretty standard process in my opinion. Basic questions, nothing challenging. Only gave you 48 hours to accept or decline, which was probably the worst part.

    Interview Questions

    • Do you have experience in building financial models? Do you work well in teams?   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at State Street (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    Hiring manager was very cocky, it definitely pleasures him to have that power over you, like he has never been on the other side. When receiving a thank you note, he always reads it, but just to find any mistake that would be a sufficient reason not to hire you.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at State Street (Kansas City, MO) in October 2012.

    Interview

    My original interview, when I first started at State Street, was based on a behavioral type interview. The questions were all focused on responding to different situations. The interview was not challenging at all. Try to be specific (if you are desperate enough to want the job). For my promotion, the same questions occurred - how did you react in this situation, how have you improved upon a situation, why are you the best candidate, etc.

    Negotiation

    Negotiations aren't available within SS.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at State Street (Boston, MA) in April 2012.

    Interview

    I was interviewed by 3 different groups. Then they would discuss among each others on which group to place me on. They took very long to get back to me though.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    I did negotiation on emails because I knew that it would be hard for me to negotiate on the phone (personal view). They raised it from 40K to 42K
