    ETF Model Portfolio Strategist, Assistant Vice President Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Scottsdale, AZ
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at State Street (Scottsdale, AZ) in May 2020.

    Interview

    Typical phone interview. Tell me about yourself. Why State Street? Why this position? Then reviewed the interview process and salary.

    The salary for this position is extremely below market price. They are targeting around 60,000 for 10 years experience, CFA, CAIA. In addition, the next step after the phone interview is to prepare a 1 hour presentation with slide deck.

    I passed after on the opportunity after hearing the salary and requirements to move onto round 3. It is unreasonable to expect a 1 hour presentation with slide deck that would take at a minimum of 2 hours to build (assuming 3 minutes per slide, which assumes all of the materials are already prepared to put into the powerpoint presentation).

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at State Street (Boston, MA) in January 2020.

    Interview

    Unorganized, no one understood what the role was or could clearly explain the objectives. It seemed that the recruiting organization was disconnected from the hiring organization. Overall the process took far too long for an offer.
