    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at State Street (Sacramento, CA) in November 2015.

    Interview

    I got a phone interview with HR two weeks after I submitted my application. I passed the screen then I was contacted by a HR coordinator regarding an on-site interview. We chatted on a Friday and she mentioned that she would send me a confirmation email with the details but I had to email and remind her since she forgot. Anyways in the email, the coordinator kindly informed me that I would need a basic knowledge of mutual funds, NAVs, etc.

    On-site interview: three interviewers and they never introduced their positions to me but I had a feeling the 'boss' was there since he was more outspoken than the other two interviewers. They went over my resume and I answered 4-5 behavioral questions that they read off of a list. I stumbled on one question because it was unexpected and I really didn't have a situation to answer it.

    HR informed me through email that it was offered to someone else. Overall, I had a good experience. I had a few laughs with the HR lady and Rodney at security was friendly.
