    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at State Street.

    Interview

    They asked what interested me about the job and why I wanted the job. The questions were pretty standard and there weren't any questions that I would say caught me off guard. The interview last for about twenty minutes. Once the interview was completed, I got a call a few days later with an offer.

    Fund Accountant Interview

    Interview

    relatively straight forward. Met with two or three manages, however, I wasn't going to work under any of them, so don't know how relavant that is to a group. Didn't know why you would meet with people that you wouldn't even be working with. Should have been a red flag.

    Interview

    This was a super long drawn out process. I was interviewed on the phone and waited over 2 months until my face to face interview. I then waited 6 weeks for my job offer. I then waited 30 days from offer until I could start. Seemed very unorganized during the process

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at State Street (Quincy, MA) in June 2014.

    Interview

    I only went on one interview that was set up by my recruiter. It was a fairly simple process. I got a slight tour of the building at first and then we sat in the conference room on the floor that the hiring manager worked on. We had a little small talk and then went over my resume and what the job I was applying for entailed.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at State Street.

    Interview

    Took about a month to finally set up an interview, had to interview with 3 individuals. First person I was suppose to meet with had something else to do so I met with the second interviewer first. Took 1 hour to basically waste time until the person that was suppose to interview me third showed up. It was all a little disorganized, and stressed me out a little bit.

    Interview Questions

    • You don't have any good qualifications like many other applicants I've had so why are you here?   1 Answer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at State Street in May 2014.

    Interview

    Interview consisted of about 8 people. They began interviewing me for one position, then thought I would be a good fit for another position, and proceeded to interview me for that as well. The way they were able to give me the best fit opportunity really made me feel like they valued me as more of a person, than a position to fill. The interview was very personable, and they educated me on the different types of funds and services that the company offered.

    Overall the interview had mostly background information, less of the technical. They care about you as a person.
