    Structured process with standardised HR behavioural questions featuring strongly. A series of 1-2-1 interviews covering experience and knowledge at previous roles. Multiple stages, with various people. Process could have been improved if panel interviews were employed as there was a lot of repetition, trips and some not so well prepared interviewers.

    EMEA Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at State Street Global Advisors (London, England (UK)) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Telephone screening interview, then one face-to-face interview, then offer.
    Pleasant experience, with one member of HR and one person from the department. Interview was about 45 minutes. No need to prepare in detail about the company or the industry, they just want to see that you are the right type of person for the role.
    I did not accept because it doesn't seem that likely for summer internship to lead to a job.

    Interview Questions

    • Standard questions. Why State Street? Why this role? Why would you be good at the role? Tell me about your past experiences relevant to this role?   Answer Question
