    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at State Street (Sacramento, CA) in October 2013.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview in which the interviewer briefly went over my resume. I then went to the office where I did 2 sets of interviews, with 2 interviewers on each panel. The questions were all standard behavioral questions, nothing too complicated. 2 weeks late I got a call with an offer.

    Interview Questions

    • Most questions were standard behavioral questions. None of them stuck out to me as difficult, however they were very by the book in what they wanted. Be prepared to be detailed when describing your actions in certain situations, as well as letting the interview know what you were able to take away from each situation.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I was not able to negotiate. The starting salary was set at $35,000.
