    Vice President Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at State Street (Boston, MA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    It only takes one minute for my first round phone screening, because she just asked whether I need sponsorship or not. My answer is yes, and then she said we can't hire students who need sponsorship. Another role I interviewed with two months ago also can't sponsor me as well. I just don't get it why they can't just ask me via email, but rather need to schedule a phone appointment and then ask this question? it's a waste of time, and not professional at al..

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at State Street (Boston, MA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I interviewed with 3 people in a conference style room.
    They were very friendly and they asked about me and my story, education, and why I want to work for them. Since this interview was not for a direct position I was not given any specific questions that were directed to the job.
    I believe the questions they asked were more directed at what interests you, what are you good at, and where will you fit best...
