    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    The interview process was kind of slow and if you are offered a position there isn't much room for negotiating the salary. brief and interview checklist oriented. It was not very difficult to speak about your experiences and why you are qualified for the position. I would recommend mentioning your strengths but not your weaknesses (trap question)
