    I applied online – interviewed at State Street.

    Interview

    First meet with HR - asks behavioral questions, background information takes about 20 minutes. Then meet with Actual Hiring Managers. The Hiring managers asked pretty simple questions and its easy to figure out the right answer. No technical questions, purely behavioral. Prefer Diverse background, want to make sure your the right fit in the team. The job itself is very entry level so if you are to qualified you might not get the job. The managers themselves didn't really know what to ask they ask random questions, and if they like you they hire you. Doesn't matter about your education or experience it seems.

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at State Street.

    Interview

    Friendly interviewers, explained what my day to day role would be. Straight forward behavioural interview questions. They seem really pleased when you can tell them something about the company that they don't expect you to know (philantrophy). There were 2 interviewers alternating questions. Also make you have GOOD quality questions to ask them at the end with regards to the company/job. They loved that

    Interview

    Contacted with a too official sounding invitation for a 1 year contract role. The interview process wasn't cordial with the recruiter as she asked the next question without really listening to the answers to the first question. I can only assume it was a questioning strategy. Not sure what they were looking for.
