    I applied online and heard from a recruiter within a week. She set up an interview promptly on State Street's campus. I spoke to one person who talked about the work I would be doing and another who asked basic interview questions.

    Pricing Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer

    Interview

    Ditto, to most of these answers. It was a professional atmosphere as you would expect. A friendly interviewer will lead the interview and another manager will be invited in to interject (possibly good cop, bad cop).

    I would recommend to be consistently positive, smile, and give canned pre-thought out examples of how you gave excellent customer service, dealt with a difficult situation, etc.

    The questions will likely be behavioral, the questions will not be exact, but similar enough.
    I am learning to do behavioral interviews better now (because it is all the rage) and this was more of a learning experience for me. I am much better with off-the-cuff quick witted questions, but they want inside-the-box planned answers, so be prepared.

    Intern Interview

    Interview

    Very nice and smooth process but I had to call and check about status of application. Human resources executive who interviewed me was very professional and extremely helpful but I believe they have since left the firm. The actual financial interview was relatively straightforward and test competency and markets based skills.

    Accounting Specialist, Associate I Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sacramento, CA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience

    Application

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

    Interview

    They contacted me after I submitted my application online. I was due for a phone screen appointment that lasted about 45 minutes. At the end of the phone screen, ask them about what the next steps in the hiring process entails; and they may schedule an open house appointment for you. A confirmation email for the open house was received, containing topics that I should review: specific items from job duties, company background, etc.

    The open house was schedule two weeks later for me. There was an hour of overview about the firm as well as mingling with other competitors. Afterward, you will be called to separate rooms for two sessions of in-person interviews (I had two interviewers per session). They were about an hour long each and consisted of behavioral questions as well as technical information you should have researched about.
