    I have been working at DST Systems full-time (More than 10 years)


    I am Sr SW Eng and find that the company is very flexible with work schedules. Most folks truly care about the quality of the sw being delivered. Great relationships with our clients. Its a big company so depending upon the group you are in, your mileage may vary.


    Management talks about career growth but it is not as easy as that. Many long term employees in sr positions prevent one from moving up. Market for key revenue stream is drastically shrinking causing management to really focus on costs including raises, promotions and bonuses. From a tech standpoint, they are not using latest and greatest so if you are content with legacy app support and maintenance, then ok

    Advice to Management

    Move folks on who have outlived their usefulness.

    Investment Processor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Kansas City, MO
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at DST Systems (Kansas City, MO) in October 2015.


    I applied for the Data Management position and was called one day later. An interview was scheduled for five days later for an Investment Processor position instead, because my resume proved I would be better suited for that position. While on the phone Jennifer Spor (HR Rep) asked me a few questions about my employment history, she explained the position to me that I would be interviewing for, and she sent me very clear/detailed instructions for the day of my interview. I interviewed with a man named Josh and a woman (whose name has escaped me) and they were good people! They were funny, laid back, and honest about the conditions of working there. They went back and forth asking me questions about my character, previous employment, and gave me "what would you do" scenarios. The Josh broke down to me what the company and position was about and what would be required from me as an employee. At the end of the interview another woman (a manager from the REITs department) came and gave me a quick tour of 2 floors in the building. She was pleasant and welcoming. Even the guard at the front desk was very sweet. After my interview I received a call from my HR Rep Jennifer Spor four days later offering me the position :) she was more excited than I was, she really invested her energy into me to the point that she formed a personal-esque relationship with me during the process. I still have to perform preemployment drug screening, finger printing, and consumer report checks. Overall the experience has been smooth and pleasant.
