I applied online – interviewed at State Street (Bangalore) in November 2014.
Face to Face Round, Aptitude, Team Manager and Manager's Round.. Over all it was a very good experience. If you did not get through in one of the process the HR's would try for you to get in to a difference process and make sure that you get in to there company.. Its better you prepare more about capital market, money market and AML process and so on.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 days – interviewed at State Street.
Phone screen first, then formal interview. Basic behavioural questions. Normal interview. Nothing technical though. Pleasant experience. Great view! Very professional and quick to let you know the outcome. Be prompt!

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at State Street (Kansas City, MO (US)) in April 2015.
Met with a recruiter on campus for a mock interview, she was great & very conversational. She told me I would be a great fit for the Kansas City office's new Accelerated Associates program. I was really excited about the opportunity because I heard it's a place that hires everyone. The next week I went in for an onsite interview- tower I was undergoing construction and II was just a huge cube farm. Met with two managers who I could tell didn't get along, and were not in any way involved with my program. Did not offer any information about the position, salary/benefits, etc. Read interview questions off of paper and transcribed every word I spoke. Unlike the HR rep they made me feel very awkward and uncomfortable. All behavioral questions, looking for very specific answers.
The interview process consisted of a phone interview, second round and a final round with a presentation and a series of interviews. Interviewers were really nice and mainly stuck with behavioral questions. HR at State Street, however, was the worst I have ever experienced.

I talked with two quantitative analysts in the team. They were both very nice. Mostly the interview is about my research projects. After the interview, they sent me a dataset about foreign exchange market and some related questions. I didn't start working on the test right away. Guess that is one of the reasons I never heard from them afterwards.
