    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at State Street (Bangalore) in November 2014.

    Interview

    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.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at State Street (Kansas City, MO (US)) in April 2015.

    Interview

    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.

    Interview

    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.

    Interview

    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.
