WSS hires for contract roles at major banks not easily found on job boards.
Banks often transition contractors to full time roles in under a year.
Very supportive staff.
Contractor benefits (health plan, etc) inferior to full-time work.
Not the fault of WSS, but contract-full time transition can be very bureaucratic.
I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Wall Street Services (New York, NY) in February 2015.
Started with a phone screen, then they brought me into the office for an examination and then an interview with the person who phone screened me and another person who I would be working with. The phone screen was around 20 minutes, the examination was around 45 minutes and the interviews with about half an hour each.
After that stage they brought me in for a final round interview with the person who initially phone screened me and the President of the company. It was a 2 hour ordeal that was very thorough.
The best thing to do in preparation for an interview with them is know your resume inside and out. Be confident with both your work and educational experience, do not worry to much about the "test" that will be administered.
