    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at State Street (Kansas City, MO) in March 2017.

    Interview

    While browsing a job search engine, I saw a sponsored advertisement for this position that is looking for May 2017 college graduates in Accounting, Finance, or Economics. I applied online for this position on March 13, and received an email on March 17 to set up an initial phone interview with a recruiter. The initial phone screening was straight-forward. The recruiter asked questions about experience with general ledgers, account reconciliations, and other similar concepts. The recruiter also asked general behavioral and situational type questions based on past work experiences along with questions about the types of college classes that I've taken. I received an email this morning stating that they are moving forward with another candidate. Overall, the phone screening was a positive experience.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at State Street (Boston, MA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    It only takes one minute for my first round phone screening, because she just asked whether I need sponsorship or not. My answer is yes, and then she said we can't hire students who need sponsorship. Another role I interviewed with two months ago also can't sponsor me as well. I just don't get it why they can't just ask me via email, but rather need to schedule a phone appointment and then ask this question? it's a waste of time, and not professional at al..

    Interview

    Two interviews, first one is fit and industry trends. Decent discussion.

    Second is messy number case and some "fit", interviewer behaved as a total jerk, immature and unintelligent. Didn't give clear answer to any of my questions. Guys, you have almost $30 T in custody, please send children to kindergarten, even if they are from top consulting house.

    Easy enough process. Bombed the phone interview so didn't get past it but if I had been more prepared it would've been easy. They were basic, situational interview questions along with what you've been involved with at school
