    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at State Street in September 2016.

    Interview

    Your experience real depends on the recruiter that picks up your cv. I was fortunate to have a really good one that replied to emails and followed up. It took me 3 interviews but she did not give up. Most disappeared after the 1st try.

    1st step - phone with recruiter to go over job and your CV.

    2nd - interview with 2 manager usually VP & AVp depends on position.

    Then just stay in touch w recruiter for feedback.

    Interviewed with a groups SVP & AVP for an Officer position. The interview was rather difficult considering it was for an Officer position and the questions they asked were geared to a more senior level role. I was asked to go over a case study with both interviewers.

    Interview

    Most interviews at State Street are pretty short and painless. You will have to meet with two people in the room. One person will most likely be more senior than the other and lead the dicusssion. There is a set list of standard HR questions that are supposed to be asked, but most interviewers have their own set of targeted questions to ask based on the group they are in.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe an idea you came up with to improve a process in your current job [or at college]. How did you identify the need to improve? What approach did you take? What was the outcome?   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at State Street (Boston, MA) in April 2012.

    Interview

    The interview process was fairly straightforward. I discussed my resume and experience with 3 team members. The focus was more on what my skills are and if I would like to work on the project. Questions were mostly behavioral with some focus on how i would work on the project. After my initial 3 interviews, I was called in to talk with the SVP of the department. It was a good experience - some difficult questions regarding the project but mostly testing my fit and interest for the project.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at State Street (Boston, MA) in April 2011.

    Interview

    New business opportunity generated several new positions. Very friendly and the head of the team conducted the interview. Relaxed yet a definite information sharing session. Come with your industry knowledge at your finger-tips, don't expect to just fluff it. Entry level positions used to include full training but no longer. This is the major sticking point with folks arriving on the floor - no consistency with the hiring process and it is either feast or famine. Perhaps laying off half the HR Department wasn't such a good move several years ago.

    Reasons for Declining

    The interview was for a position that I was unqualified for. They would have hired me but I knew it wasn't right so pulled self from contention.
