    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at State Street Global Markets (Boston, MA) in February 2014.

    Interview

    I had two interviews. Both at the headquarters in Boston. A lot of their jobs are posted online but they're mostly operational positions which can be tough to juggle that salary with the living expenses of Boston

    Associate II Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a week. I interviewed at State Street Global Markets (Boston, MA) in June 2013.

    Interview

    In my experience, the interviewing and hiring is done by individual team managers. Because of this, I expect the interview can vary. I had one interview with my would-be manager who asked me some standard questions about my resume and previous experience. The entire interview was basically a give and take conversation.

    Interview Questions

    • There were no difficult questions but the job required working holidays and sometimes late evenings so, depending on the job, one may want to think about how they feel about such a schedule.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at State Street Global Markets (Boston, MA) in January 2013.

    Interview

    The interview was quite straight forward but their HR is not on the same page with each other. They made the whole experience last four months long and never met any of their deadlines. Do not interview with them.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at State Street Global Markets (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    I sent my resume to an SVP that wrote an article for the Federal Reserve. He liked it and asked me to visit with his team. It was very conversational. They were surprisingly skilled at asking the traditional behavioral interview questions in a very untraditional manner. They never asked "Name a time you faced conflict on a team and how did you resolve it". Instead, it came up in the course of conversation. It elicits very frank, honest answers.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    The negotiation was a nice give and take. However, I was hired near a peak demand for talent. I understand that they take a hardline now.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at State Street Global Markets (Boston, MA) in March 2012.

    Interview

    There were four people, each of them talked about 15 minutes. There were really general questions and some of the interviewers asked the same questions. The whole process was informal. However, I doubt if they could get any information from such an interview. To make it worse, it took so long for them to finally make the decision.
