    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    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

    Manager - Fund Accounting Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Interview Details

    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.
