    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at State Street (Boston, MA) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Got contacted by a recruiter after applying online and got asked some basic questions verifying the info I put online. Took a while after that to get an interview (2 months). I was offered interviews for several different positions and set up an appointment for an interview the following week. The interview itself was very straight forward and entirely behavioral/ experience questions in a two on one setting. The questions were draw from a generic sheet but managers had discretion as to which questions to ask. After the interview it took two weeks to hear back with an offer. As a side note there is some disorganization between recruiters. I on multiple occasions was contacted by other State Street recruiters who were not aware of the fact I was already in contact. That being said my primary recruiter was always quick to respond to emails and calls (when i had questions).

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at State Street (Ireland, IN) in May 2013.

    Interview

    Telephone interview: competency based, asked about my previous experience my education and about state street. Face to face: similar however I was presented with a test me before the interview which kind of unsettled me a bit( I was not expecting this as HR person said it was just going to be a verbal competency based etc.. interview) this was probably the most difficult part of the interview, gave me 10-15 mins to answer questions which consisted of economics and accounting calculations.
    Overall long process.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at State Street (Boston, MA) in February 2011.

    Interview

    I went to several interviews, most were casual, they seemed more concerned about demeanor and work ethic than the relevant knowledge base. One interview was in the JHTower, in the cafeteria and that was rather casual. The next interview was in their main building where I met with the HR recruiter. She seemed tired and cold, went through the list of mandatory questions and that was it.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    They didn't move much, and weren't particularly interested in negotiating ... annoyingly firm

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at State Street (Kansas City, MO) in January 2011.

    Interview

    The interview process is situational based interviewing. So, they ask questions like- tell me about a situation in which your supervisor told you there was a problem with your work, and what did you do about it. Also within my department the interviews are all scheduled for an hour so attempt to reach that threshold to have a good interview. Also, there will be two people interviewing your and they will typically tag team and alternate asking questions. Lastly the two people will likely be of different levels with one typically being a manager and the second person being an officer or above within the department, not specifically within the reporting structure of the position being hired.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a time where you had a coworker that was difficult to get along with. How did you handle the situation?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I was not able to negotiate very much, but there is typically room for negotiation based on skill and experience level. Also, I was able to secure a signing bonus to counter an offer that I had from my previous employer to continue to work there.
