Interview

The interview process consisted of a phone interview, second round and a final round with a presentation and a series of interviews. Interviewers were really nice and mainly stuck with behavioral questions. HR at State Street, however, was the worst I have ever experienced.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at State Street (Kansas City, MO) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Met with a recruiter on campus for a mock interview, she was great & very conversational. She told me I would be a great fit for the Kansas City office's new Accelerated Associates program. I was really excited about the opportunity because I heard it's a place that hires everyone. The next week I went in for an onsite interview- tower I was undergoing construction and II was just a huge cube farm. Met with two managers who I could tell didn't get along, and were not in any way involved with my program. Did not offer any information about the position, salary/benefits, etc. Read interview questions off of paper and transcribed every word I spoke. Unlike the HR rep they made me feel very awkward and uncomfortable. All behavioral questions, looking for very specific answers.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at State Street (Boston, MA) in February 2012.

    Interview

    I interviewed with two Vice President's for an associate role. I was offered and accepted an Officer level position. I studied finance, accounting and systems through my compulsory education. I have a thorough knowledge of systems, finance, mutual funds and stocks and bonds. I was more concerned that I wanted to work for this company. As it turns out, I did not want to at all. However, I did stay for four years and did not seek any opportunities other than what I was hired for on purpose. It was not a place I would ever look back at , or forward to being EVER again.

    Interview Questions
