    Contract Administrator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Kansas City, MO (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at State Street (Kansas City, MO (US)) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Hiring process tended to be on the slow side. Sometimes you get a call to tell you to expect another call, that will lead to another. It took weeks to hear back about getting the interview scheduled, and then 3 more weeks after hire to start.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed 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.
