Fund Accountant Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY

Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at State Street (New York, NY) in March 2016.

Interview

It was straight forward. I was contacted by a recruiter through email. I would definitely advise anyone to get a recruiters email (go on to Linkedin to find a recruiter) , if you are serious about working for this company. Contacting a recruiter seems to be the best way to actually getting an interview. Once I was contacted, we set up an interview time. So the first interview was over the phone. The second was a 1:1.

    Interview

    relatively straight forward. Met with two or three manages, however, I wasn't going to work under any of them, so don't know how relavant that is to a group. Didn't know why you would meet with people that you wouldn't even be working with. Should have been a red flag.

    Interview

    This was a super long drawn out process. I was interviewed on the phone and waited over 2 months until my face to face interview. I then waited 6 weeks for my job offer. I then waited 30 days from offer until I could start. Seemed very unorganized during the process

    Application

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

    Interview

    The hiring process went pretty smoothly for me. I applied online for a few jobs and received a phone call a few weeks later setting up a phone interview the following week. I took the interview, mostly rating yourself on MS applications and things, and took a panel interview a week later. The panel interview was long (4 hours), but not too bad. I think they have since changed the process to be a phone interview and a two-on-one interveiw shortly after.

    Interview Questions

    • They had asked me to define a NAV (Net Asset Value) and variance and a few financial questions.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    No negotiation was involved.
